Baby blanket complete

It's nearly finished! all I need to do is add a label to the bottom I'm thinking of embroidering her name and handmade with love on to a small piece of aida cloth. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Baby blanket changes

I have completely changed my baby blanket project the main reason being the ultra fine wool and circular needles are proving to be incredibly difficult and anger making to work with!
I found lots of spare chunky wool in a fab teal blue in my craft press so I've adjusted the pattern to work with chunky wool and straight needles. I've also decided to do one row of hearts followed by a basketweave stitch which seems to be working out really well.

It's knitting up much quicker which is a bonus. I'm not designed to work with fine wool on any project bigger than a hat:)

Charity shop lunch break finds

I've been really lucky in two particular shop over the last few months. I got this fab tray and cups from granny's attic they do house clearances and the other store is a Dorothy house charity shop where I got the best red apple placemats.
