I've decided I need a new crochet challenge. I've made so many beanies these past few months, that now I think I need to move on, and learn to make something new.
So that's what I've been working on. New things..
First up, I gave Sarah London's fancy heart pattern a go - it's so sweet, and was really quite easy.
And I've decided to give this crochet blanket a go, after being inspired by my creative friend Nadya with her funky crochet blanket. I bought this pattern quite a while ago, but was a bit intimidated by the puff stitch. And now that I've tried it, it was with good reason I was intimidated :-P
It is quite an uncomfortable stitch but I love the look of it, so have decided to persevere and hopefully it will end up as a completely beautiful blanket, and worth every minute put into it. The pattern is from Alicia Poulson.
And on a more practical note, this last week saw me whip up 4 pairs of pyjamas for my two older ones, and my niece and nephew, in the theme of heart & flowers, butterflies, robot aliens and pirates. Feels good to have these off my to-do list.
