Although while away I managed to get finished a few craft pieces yeah.....about time.I know Mel Kerrys best friend was due to have her baby in early May so I thought better get my finger out and do something about it...
So I made this baby blanket for Kerry's best friend (my second daughter) ,.I first saw a blanket
like this on Sherry website it was beautiful and i fell in love with it..I did try to contact her about what sort of wool etc but we went away before her reply came through. so i made my own version up and hoped it worked .
Please check out Sherry;s blog there are some really beautiful items there and the site is beautiful.
All I used was 5 balls of JAZZ and 5 balls of PARADE made 45 chain.1 dc into every stitch till end and that's it,when it got to the lenght I wanted I turned it around and did about 5 rows around the whole rug.
Oh I forgot I used a 15mm crotchet hook.
Also when finished I threaded ribbon in it,
Looks beautiful if i must say so ha ha I used white ribbon for the blanket but Mel caled while we were away and she has had a little girl.So I am changing the ribbon to pink.
Now this is great,I started this rug for Kerry ages ago like last year sometime - then I didn't want to finish it so my wonderful mum did a couple of rows of dc around the edges then her and my dad made the tassels(big job)
thanks mum looks superb and Kerry loves it.
I also bagged up my gifts for Emma the little girl with cancer i just wrote about.Now just got to post it.
Mum did hers for Emma as well.
