Happy Friday everyone, we’ve made it to the end of another week and it didn’t take long to get here did it?
My last blog had a teaser of my new WIP added to my new trolley, which I still love btw, it was actually two projects.
I brought these cakes from Aldi when they had their recent craft weeks and I only managed to get four, two of each colour and I didn’t know what I should make with them. I knew I wanted to do some kind of baby blanket (due to the colours) but I wanted to try something different.
I came across a 12 point star blanket free to download so was praying I’d have enough yarn for each. I did just, I tried to push an extra round out of the yarn but I was literally 4 stitches short, How annoying?
Not sure why I have never done a 12 point star blanket before but I loved it. The pattern worked up so quickly I have managed to do both this week, they have just come out of the washer and are block drying as I type.
I know that with the way the yarn is coloured that its not perfect rounds each time but I think it adds quirkiness to each blanket. The both measure 40″ so is ideal for a baby blanket, cot / pram topper, bed dressing, chair throw.
I’m sure I will be making some more of these I really enjoyed them both, Anyway have a lovely weekend everyone, make it count.
