Hello again. This is just a very quick post to let you see some of the little things I've been making. Of course making little things means that the big things take even longer to make. That's because I can only crochet or knit one thing at a time. Unfortunately!
This is a lap blanket that I knit while travelling as a passenger in the car. The strips are knit separately; 25 stitches and 300 rows of garter stitch. When all the strips were finished I crocheted them together and then crocheted a bit of a border round the outside.
I made another one the same except that it had an eighth stripe that was striped in the other direction with each of the seven colours. I didn't get a picture of it before I gave them both away. The two lap blankets went to keep residents of my local nursing home nice and warm. They were really pleased to receive them.
As a lot of you already know, Taci is planning to take hats to Brazil in July. So I thought I'd make some for her to take along.
Here they are. These are very small size.
These are probably big enough for a toddler. Very girly!
And these would suit a boy.
One of the girls in my crochet class also made some hats that I'll send along with mine.
I treated myself to some roses at the weekend. Aren't they lovely?
Thank you for your comments on the socks. Quite a few of you have put your name in one of the three hats to win a pair of socks. If you still haven't done so, then maybe you'd like to go back to my giveaway post and see what you think.
Bye for now. Next post will be to announce the socks winners.
