Baby Blanket

Hi everyone it's been a while since I posted. I have been crocheting but just haven't kept up with taking photos and blogging. Today I'm showing off a little blanket I've made. It's just a simple granny square with a scalloped edging. I've been making baby clothes for all my friends and family who have had babies now I finally get to make things for MY baby!!!!!!!!!! Yes I am 14 weeks pregnant and planing all sorts of craft projects. Unfortunately the nausea and exhaustion has taken much of my desire to crochet and craft away. I actually had another blanket in mind, a cute one with bunnies on it but my brain couldn't handle anything that required it to work so I started tying to get back to crocheting with the most simple thing I could think of hence the one BIG granny square which I can practically do in my sleep.

Here's a photo of the blanket. I made it using pure New Zealand wool. It is quite heavy and measures about 60x60 cm

And just because I can, here's a photo of our bub at 11 weeks scan...

Anyhow I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New years! We had a nice quiet one with family, just the way I like it. Keep up the posts, loving what is being posted here awesome stuff as always!

Meeting the Granny a Day Challenge!

My cookie jar of crochet squares
This is my first post!  And on the last day of the year too - very apt though as I've actually managed to crochet 365 squares - one for each day of 2010, though it did become more of a 'Granny every few days Challenge'!

These squares are small but perfectly formed and I'm going to carry on with them into 2011 to make a gorgeous big throw in a rainbow of colours.  I'm using 100% 8 ply wool from the Spotlight Basics range.

The simple granny square - an oldie but a goldie!
The Granny a Day Challenge was hosted by Meet Me at Mike's - I'm hoping there will be another challenge for 2011, but it's a great site to visit for inspiration.

Wishing everyone a fantasic 2011 and may there be many crochet adventures!  :)

Shell Stitch Teapot Cozy

Hello Everyone! I'm glad Inger Carina posted. I forget to come here and show my crochet projects sometimes until I'm reminded when others post theirs.

Here is a teapot cozy I made last weekend. I posted a free pattern for the body of it on my blog with some links to free flower and leaf patterns.

Hope you all had a nice Christmas!

Star Garland

Here's one of the garlands I recently made for my Etsy-shop. Just recently I found out how much fun it is to make them. I blogged about one of my garlands too. You can read the story about the I Love My House-Garland here.
