A friend of mine has just had a new baby, and I am delighted to have found a good home for one of my favourite blankets:
It is made in a mitred squares pattern (which I borrowed from Sue at Crochet again) using Rowan wool cotton in antique, grand and frozen, and Rowan baby merino silk in rose and dawn, on a 4 mm hook.
This is a bit of nonsense really but we needed a dishcloth, so why not make one to match the crockery?
Made in Rowan handknit cotton (Thunder) and wool-cotton DK (Mellow yellow – discontinued) on a 4mm needle. To be honest it is a bit thick for a dishcloth, but never mind!
All has been quiet on the blog for a while as I have been learning new and exciting stitches (more of which later). I also have a BIG project I want to do, and in a burst of uncharacteristic self control I decided to finish off some UFO’s first (UFO = Unifinished Object). I chose the wool for this blanket back in the summer as I wanted something boyish but not too much so.
Made in Rowan wool cotton 4 ply Celanden, Paper, Violet and Antique colours. With Rowan baby merino silk DK Dawn. All using a 4mm needle.
With thanks to Sue at ‘Crochet again’ for setting me off on the mitred square idea
Now – I wonder if anyone I know is expecting a boy
I had a lovely email from a fellow blogger with a photo of her new mitred square blanket
Isn’t it striking? So good to share ideas
I have just finished a mitred square blanket in a purple colour scheme
It is made in Rowan wool cotton DK on a 4mm hook, in Bilberry, Grand, Frozen, Clear and Antique.
The cushion is bought (Gisela Graham I think) and I would like to make one myself – in some kind of shell stitch?
This is the most recent colourway for the mitred square blanket.
I wanted something pink without being too pale, and I think this does it.
