Carseat Blanket

Morning All. I'm sharing another colour palette today...

Although I was totally inspired by my baby changing bag I think this would be a perfect colour combination for a manly blanket.

Enjoy the rest of your week

Rainbow Ripple Blanket #2

Happy New Year!

I recently(ish) made this blanket for a new baby.
It's so happy and bright, I hope that its new owner loves it as much as I do.

The plan was to use up some odds and ends from my yarny stash but I think I actually added a lot more than I used because I needed a  few colours, obviously :)

It is made from mostly stylecraft special DK with some other acrylic yarns added in where I preferred the colour range. A couple are 'new fashion' which has some great shades but isn't quite as soft as the Stylecraft.

I hope you've had a wonderful start to 2015

Cute Baby Headband


I thought'd pop this little headband up on here because I was so pleased with how it turned out!

I started with a foundation chain of 68, then 1 row of trebles, joined it up into a circle, then just did a row of shell edging (4 trebles in one space, miss a space then anchor it with a slip stitch in the next space, miss another space then repeat the 4 trebles) along the top and bottom.

The flower was made-up by crocheting 10 trebles into a 3-chain circle and then alternating 4 trebles in one space and a slip stitch in the next five times to make the five little petals. 

For the leaves I just made a chain of 7 and worked a slip stitch, double, half tr, tr x2, half tr, and then a double and carried on from there to make another one. I just tried stitches until it looked about the right size and then used the ends to sew everything together.

Happy crocheting my lovelies!

A Rainbow Ripple Blanket

I've been rippling again, delicious interlocking colour-blocky rippleyness. This one is another baby/toddler sized blanket like the one that I've posted here before. The wool is Stylecraft Special DK which works brilliantly for this blanket as it can be thrown in with a standard wash and tumbled dried. I was worried about whether it would be soft enough for a baby but it's perfect even after (what feels like) constant washing for the past 8 weeks.

Pattern: The Neat Ripple Pattern from Attic24

So much happiness in one picture      ❤  It doesn't get better than sleeping babies and rainbows

I know that my blogging has been more than a little irregular this year, thank you for sticking with me, I really appreciate it. I've been crafting like a crazy person in that time (and creating my very own miniature person) so I have lots of posts coming soon.

Best Wishes
