Wow, December is finally here... no snow yet, at least none that stayed! When the weather is turning cold and windy, then it's ideal to spend the dark evenings with some nice crochet at home.
Thanks for your lovely comments on my last makes, it always touches my heart to hear from you. Meanwhile I have started working on some new projects, more about that later.
I hope my American friends enjoyed their holiday season!
My finished granny square blanket for a boy
Here I got some photos for you to show off the finished blanket that I talked about in my last post.
As soon as the above blanket was finished, I got started on another granny square blanket! This one is for the boy's baby sister!
A granny square blanket for a baby girl
I started with 6 colours in warm shades, ranging from yellow to lilac. The yarn is Stylecraft Special DK, as before with the other blanket. Each ball of yarn is 100 g.
I kept working away, my goal was to crochet 6x squares every day. Soon I had about 11 squares for each colour.
I decided to mix things up a bit, making squares with 4 different colours in each!
First, I went through all the different permutations which resulted in 25 mini squares!
Playing with my squares on the floor!
I began to turn those mini squares into full size ones!
This was what it looked like yesterday!!!
Today I have started my assembly, attaching the squares row for row! I will let you know when it is finished, still lots more work to do for now!!!
A chunky crochet wrap or lap blanket
I also made this wrap to keep my shoulders warm, I used 3x 100g Auraucania Budi with an 8mm crochet hook!!
It was done pretty quickly, I used a simple V-stitch pattern! (15x Vs in a row). The hand dyed yarn colours vary between a deep to a light rose pink, and black to pale grey.
The finished size is 36cm x 104 cm. It's lovely warm!
My Fortune's Shawlette
Here is the progress on my not so small Shawlette, I took it with me on the train to Gent last week when I went to visit my daughter there! I draped it over the chair on the train to get a picture!
That's it for now.... more to come in the following days!
