Blanket for Little One

Every time I got out my crochet blanket Little One would make a beeline for it and make herself nice and comfy whilst I worked on it. I therefore decided that I would make one for her bed in the living room. I ordered the wool from Minerva and it arrived last weekend so it set to work on the blanket.

This is how the blanket is currently looking, I think it is probably about half done:

The colours go with the living room but I also feel that they also go beautifully with Little One:

She is already showing an interest by resting her head on my lap as I crochet, hopefully this means she’ll enjoy it when it is finished.

Crochet blanket – All done

Back in May I started a crochet blanket, I started it the day before my exam as a self calming strategy; by giving myself something to concentrate on I didn’t get myself all wound up about the exam.

Today I finally completed the blanket:

It consists of 26 stripes of purple and grey hues and then a border to finish it all off:

The blanket goes perfectly on our bed, we have actually been using it during the recent cold nights. I have simply placed a safety pin in the last stitch before putting it on the bed. The blanket is wonderfully warm.

Little One has taken quite a shine to the blanket, every time I have been crocheting it recently she has come and curled up on it (honest working on the blanket with a dog laying on it is not the easiest of things). I have therefore decided that the next blanket I make will be a mini on for her…I know she is very spoilt!

Crochet Blanket – Twentieth Stripe

My crochet blanket was put on hold during the warm weather, however I have now picked it back up again and have now reached the end of the twentieth stripe, meaning that the blanket is now two third complete:

Only ten more stripes to go, I would quite like to get the blanket completed during October so that it is definitely done ready for the cooler months.

Crochet Blanket – Eighteen Stripe

Due to the hot weather my crochet blanket too a bit of a back seat for a while…somehow having all that wool on my lap was more than I could bare. Now that it has cooled down a bit I have picked the blanket up again and added another few stripes. Today I add the eighteen stripe:

It is actually getting pretty hard to show all of it on one photo, goodness knows how I’ll get the whole thing in when it is finished.

I tried standing on a chair and photographing down onto the bed:

But it still doesn’t show the whole lot! Hopefully I can continue working on it now the evenings are cooling down and get towards it being finished before the nights get cold.

Crochet Blanket – Half way There

The crochet blanket has continued to grow and this evening I have finished the fifteen stripe which means I am half way there! This is how the blanket is looking:

Right at the top there is a deep purple stripe that is sort of lost on the grey bedding.

I have also managed to complete the jasmine top but Si is out tonight so no photos until tomorrow, I’ll share it then.

Crochet Blanket – Seventh Stripe

My addiction to crochet has continued and I have been making excellent progress on the crochet blanket. I have now completed the seventh stripe (and started on the eighth)….not bad going considering i started on 14th May.

I think that I’ll need 30 stripes in total so I’m about 1/4 of the way through:
