One Down.....

Since I am due to have our second child in May, a boy, I have been busy with my crochet hook. I have many, many ideas and this little blanket is one that managed to make the journey from brain to reality. It is a small blanket that will be perfect for the cradle, pram and capsule/carseat. It is made with a simple shell stitch. As this babe will be a winter babe, I am going to have to make a few more.

I am toying with the idea of a fleece backed flannel cradle blanket and a few other crochet ones. I am also making Noo a replacement for the one her little brother is going to steal off her. The one he is stealing is just the right colours for a little boy and I just wanted the excuse to work with pink yarn. I am using pink verigated yarn and a basketweave stitch. The basketweave is a learning process as I have never used back and front post stitches before. It is looking good at the moment.
