I seem to have been surrounded by pastel colours this week! Which is fine by me as I adore these colours.
I frogged the striped blanket that I started last year. I worked on it for a while and loved the colours and stripes but the rows were just too long. I knew that once I decided it was too big I would never finish it. So this week, I finally unravelled it. I still love the colours and I can see a colourful granny square blanket happening soon so all those little balls of yarn won't go to waste!
I bought the latest issue of Simply Crochet magazine last weekend. I don't think I've bought this magazine in at least a year, but I had a flick through it whilst I was in the supermarket and loved a few of the projects. So I had to buy it! I made the little cardigan above. I loved making this! It was such a quick and enjoyable little make and I'm delighted with how it's turned out. I had never crocheted a garment before and wondered if I would be able to do it. I made the smallest size but the pattern goes right up to age 8 so I think I'm going to make one for Miss M to wear with her little summer skirts. The pattern is called Sugar & Spice and is from issue 32 of Simply Crochet.
Miss M has been enjoying beading recently and made me a cute little bracelet in pale blue and pink.
I'm almost finished the Jelly Bean blanket. I'm working on the border now (my favourite part!) so should have it finished in a couple of days. Very surprisingly this is the only blanket I have on the go at the moment. I really need to do something about that!
Have a great weekend.
