A blanket and two hats!

Gee I've missed everyone!! Life is sometimes too hectic to have a moment to sit and contemplate what comes next!! So even though I have had every intention of getting down to a bit of blog writing, in the words of John Lennon "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans".

I have had to put my beautiful Stripey Blanket WIP on the back burner for a couple of weeks ..... a Snuggle Blanket for a little niece's birthday present and an order for two hats popped up and have had all my attention.  And to be honest, I have rather enjoyed the diversity in yarns and patterns!

I am using a square based on one of my favourites, the Sunburst square, for the blanket in White, Fuschia, Violet, Crocus (a lilac) and Just Pink, all shades in our Elle Family Double Knit, a really good value for money yarn.  Hook is 4mm, and I am using the join-as-you-go method (link here).
All the squares are nearly up to the last row before the joining row, so my weekend hooky fix is organised!

In between making squares, I have made two hats for a friend's grand-daughter in the UK.  For the one pictured hereunder, I used a pattern that I keep on coming back to .. do you do that? .. it's featured in a Simply Crochet magazine Issue 26, and it has worked up beautifully!  Again I have used an Elle yarn, this one is called Rustic Double Knit and the colour is Cobalt blue, and for interest I have layered the dc rows with 'Seed pattern' rows in Dark Navy.

I hope the weekend is a good one,
until next post
