Winter is here! & a fleece blanket

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Winter arrived. It was quite all-of-a-sudden-ly. Now, cold hands and woolly hats are abundant.

The park froze over. The puddles are miniature ice-rinks. Jumpers and cardigans have been replaced by snowsuits. There was, in fact, even snow. In London. In NOVEMBER!

I haven't been crafting much as it seems that I spend more time making sandwiches for lunches, cleaning up after messy baby and washing bottles than on anything I actually want to do. Ya know, like knit a cardigan, or a pair of socks, or ... anything, really.

I did, however, make an eensy weensy and snuggly warm baby blanket for a friend's baby shower. Just a few evenings after baby has gone to bed and et voila! Instant craft satisfaction.

Take one cheery fleece fabric print (hot air balloons AND rainbows)...

... and blanket stitch all the way around the outside to make a base for a neat crochet edge. This keeps the fleecy bits all neat and tidy for washing later on.

Very snuggly warm for winter baby who should be here in a few short weeks. Brrrr.
