I know I've been very quiet lately as I feel like I have been doing very little craft.
My sewing machine is on the blink (grrr!) and there just never seems to be enough hours in the day...
Yet (almost) every evening I'm hooking away at some little project or another and when you gather them all together they make quite a nice little collection.
Meet some of the crochet blankets that have been hanging around our house ...
|Lornas Wavy Crochet Blanket , currently adorning her VERY messy room|
As the daughter has a blanket, so must the son ...
Here's Gavins Blanket.

Not quite so girly I started this blanket as a way of using up two ENORMOUS balls of grey yarn I bought in Aldi ! Another one of Lucy's patterns you'll find it HERE.
At the moment i seem to be addicted to making baby blankets, Heres a nice wiggly one I made 2 summers ago , it currently resides on my office chair for chilly moments ...

The next one is a cotton blanket I made for 2 friends who are expecting a new arrival in May,
(we don't know if its a boy or a girl yet!) Much like the blanket I made in this post - I followed the Niki Trench pattern and really enjoyed working in cotton.
When I was in the yarn shop I spotted some lovely pink cottons too and just couldn't resist ! I found this wonderfull snuggly stitch created by Tamara at Moogly. Go visit her page !
|Leaping Stripes & Blocks - LOVE this stitch !!!|
|Baby Blankets - Yup ! I AM tempted to make a blue one !|
And finally a sneek peek the blanket I'm working on at present ...
It's very incomplete and taking simply AGES but I'll be sure and come back to share it with you when its done !
Looking at all that colourful crochet goodness has cheered me up on this grey winters day !
Thanks for visiting & come back soon !
