Baby Blanket

My friend had a baby girl this week so I've decided to make this pretty baby blanket for her as a gift.
I have till April before I'll see her so fingers crossed I get it finished before then.
I choose a lilac coloured acrylic for this project, I was going to go for a wool blend but it is not the best for washing, a baby blanket needs to washed frequently so I need to be practical:)

My first Pyrex




I love Pyrex but I never ever see it in our local charity shops, that was until Friday lunch-time when I found this beautiful dish.



I'd like a few more in different colours for my shelf:)

1940's knitting

I bought this book from a friend during the week, it's full of great patterns from the 40's from jumpers to underwear! don't think I'll be making the latter but there are definitely some great vintage projects I'll be attempting this year.
