I love creating blankets and scarves. I love picking out the stitches and what colour yarn I want. I love the possibilities.
Then to tip my excitement over there are days like today…. A SALE and A COUPON for exactly what I want. I was like a kid in the candy store being told I could buy my fill.
I was so excited because I have 4/5 projects to do by Christmas. I get to make a couple scarves, a ‘big sister’ blanket (so she doesn’t feel left out), and a baby blanket with matching dolly blanket (so big sister can keep her dolly warm).
I’m especially thrilled about this baby blanket because I can make it in delicate baby PINK. I’ve made so many blue or neutral blankets, I’ve been dying to make a little pink one.
I looked through Pintrest ’til I found a pattern that called to me. Here’s my inspiration from Bunny Mummy. Wonderful, clear instructions with photos for each step.
I decided that I liked the closed center.
So I’m going to use “the magic circle” as my centre. While looking for another project I found a post on how to make an adjustable ‘magic’ ring by yarntomato. http://www.crochetme.com/forums/t/28917.aspx
=) Well I have to get back to my yarn now. Like a good book it is hard to put down.
