I wanted to make the lovely blanket from the Cute And Easy Crochet but I got to 50 squares (the blanket requires something like 432!!) and was bored senseless, so now they have turned into a couple of cushion covers. Need more cream to finish off:
Now this cushion was crocheted with Kool Kotton which at £1.50 for 50g is a bargain, it is 50% cotton/50% acrylic and is lovely and soft - I've made a cardi with it before.
I also started this in it:
Which is hopefully going to be a ripple blanket following Lucy's pattern over at Attic24 - I say "hopefully" as if I get bored it might well turn into a ripple scarf!!
I'm also going use the Sublime Baby Cotton & Kapok for this that I got on Sunday half price. Interestingly, although the Sublime is a lot more expensive (£3.99 a ball normally) it feels and crochets much the same as the Kool Kotton.
I had a play and made these:
I just love sitting and doing these, it's a shame I can't make a blanket out of hearts - they are so easy and quick and after a couple you can do them without looking at the pattern - which I found at Sarahndipities (OMG, I love that name, wish I had thought of it!!)
I did a load on Saturday night in trusty Stylecraft's Special DK and made them into a garland which I strung on the inspiration board in my sewing room - must remember to take a pic.
I'm also crocheting a lace trim in pink around a pillowcase for my little nieces new bed but I forgot to take a pic of that too (scatterbrain!!)
Have a lovely day....
