Hi all

I have just finished this corner to corner baby blanket for a friend’s daughter’s new baby. Using all odd bits of DK baby wool from my stash. Thank you for looking.

Lovely blanket. Looks like a lacy stitch?

That’s beautiful ! I haven’t managed to make corner to corner work ! It comes out sort of squashed !
The colours are lovely ,

Really beautiful work - I love the colour combinations especially as you have used bits from your stash. I just cannot master corner to corner. Maybe one day.

Beautiful work, Purplepixie. It is so delicate and pretty and some of my favourite colours.

Thank you. I have some pink, purple and red to start another one. Also making some little jumpers for my friend to take to her church fair this Christmas. I’ll post the photos once finished. I am in a creative mood and besides - what would I be doing on a wet day? Housework? Stay safe. ?

That’s really lovely, Purplepixie, I’m sure they’ll be very pleased.

Ha, you’re like me, Purplepixie - anything but housework!

Lovely and so creative. flowersWe made crochet throws for our beds with begged and borrowed wool as students to hide the grotty bedding that was issued. I did do an Afghan crochet blanket for a baby and found the zig zag very hard until I got the hang of it.
The pompoms on the corners took ages as I used the proper plastic formers then decided not to sew them on as the baby night choke on them

Lovely. Well done. Especially since you’ve used up all your odd bits of wool.
