So, here we are with another ‘new to me’ yarn. There have been so many offers throughout lockdown that it seemed rude not to take advantage of at least some!
Once again this is an Acrylic yarn. It has a very soft and smooth texture. I chose 3 different colours. This is sometimes difficult when ordering over the internet, but if you look at the Cygnet Yarns website PURE BABY PRINTS is a small range with colours that all react well with each other. I chose 3 colours for this baby blanket.
Lavender Blush is an interesting mix in itself.
Ocean Mists is a definite reminder of sea and shore.
Misty Rose completes the trilogy.
The balls are 100g and approximately 245m in length.
A 4.5 hook is recommended – and that is what I used.
This was a very quick blanket to make. Only 12 x eight round squares were needed – joined and finished with a simple border using rounds of each colour.
This blanket will be winging its way to Wales in time for a new baby due in May. I bought two balls of each colour. There was a little left, and I will incorporate that into the Pick me up and Put me down Blanket which is quietly progressing in the background
Meanwhile, lockdown continues- and health improves. I should be working on my secret ‘Boddington blanket’ but I really can’t settle to that at the moment, so the reveal will have to wait. We managed a walk in the countryside around everything else that’s going on
So good to be out in the fresh air. Today all the windows are open and the central heating is off! It’s a real spring day. April has been a very dry month so far – the odd showers that have fallen have been of snow! Last year we had April temperatures of up to 24 deg C, more seasonal this year – but rising next week apparently.
Thanks for reading this far. Stay safe – and Happy Crocheting!
