Its been a while since I last posted, life kind of took over ! But, it doesn't mean I didn't have time to be creative.
A few months ago a friend who was pregnant asked me if I would make a baby blanket for her. After a little discussion about patterns etc, we decided on the Babette Blanket. I think the babette blanket is almost an iconic patterns that everyone who begins to crochet falls in love with. I bought the pattern a few years ago, but never got around to making it...so this was my chance!
The hooking up of the squares went quite quickly, but I didn't anticipate the enormous amount of time it would take to sew them together. But, seeing the colours come together as I stitched the squares together was an incentive to keep going.
I'm so thrilled I finally got to make this blanket, and yes... i'll be a little sad to see it go. But I know it is going to a good home where it will be loved and appreciated.
