Yippee! I finished the spring fields baby blanket that I was pattern testing for Katie from creating time. I’m so pleased with it and really happy I finished it before the end of July, which was the target.
And here are a few close ups. I love the colours on it, and the only thing I’m disappointed with is the fact that I have holes in the bottoms of the flowers where I didn’t do the stitches tight enough. They don’t notice a lot in these photos but are more obvious in real life.
It’s been a fun pattern to follow, doing lots of front and back post stitches, popcorn stitches and techniques I’ve not used before, and I’m proud of myself for learning so much through making it, improving my skills as I went along, and responding to the challenge of trying something new. I adapted the distance between the leaves and the flowers as I realised I crocheted some rows more than once, and learnt the importance of marking off the rows on the pattern!
My second piece of exciting news is that I’ve got 50 WordPress followers!! So that means a giveaway of an exciting prize of things I’ve made! You’ll have to wait a few days though as I’m away visiting my parents and then my God daughter and can’t do a photo of the prize as I don’t have it with me, but hopefully you’ll like it when I show you what you can win!
