Starring teddy

Time for teddy to make another appearance with my first baby blanket for 2018, and a resolution:

It is of course a granny rectangle, and this one is made in Drops cotton merino white (which is in fact a lovely warm cream colour), and Rico baby classic dk light grey, smokey blue and mauve (discontinued). I think the colours are quite calming and (in my view) also gender-neutral.

I am a little late with this year’s resolution and it might sound somewhat strange at first, but my aim is to crochet less. Before you all fall off your collective chairs I should explain a little. Last year turned out to be a year of frenetic trebling for me – baby blankets, scarves, dishcloths, you name it. I have to admit that I found the whole making thing very therapeutic, but I feel that this year less might be more.

I am not saying that there will be no more baby blankets this year (I am not even sure that would be possible) but that I will make an effort to improve my skills by trying different things. This will inevitably decrease my productivity but I think that might be a good thing.

So if you feel that I am blogging a little less, it will not be because I am neglecting you, or my crochet. It will hopefully be because I am trying something new and interesting and perhaps a little more time consuming. Wish me luck!

    That is a perfect gender neutral color! I am loving all the new techniques I’m starting to learn as well. I think this blanket is so pretty! Whoever receives it will be very pleased.
