Next up is the completed baby blanket, which I just need to block sometime:
Newborn Baby Blanket by Altadena Green

A little crochet hat for baby Milla:
Little Sister, pattern by Linda Permann found online here
Started last night is another baby blanket, this one is for my friend's baby girl due in December:
I've chosen a melon colour from the Cleckheaton Country Aran range for the middle of the blanket and cream for the outside border. It's so lovely and soft. The pattern is from this book, which I bought after seeing it reviewed on Retromummy's blog a few months ago.
Earlier this week I picked up the lastest issues of Mollie Makes and Simply Crochet, which I look forward to reading over the weekend.
Hannah was so excited as Hairy Maclary came to stay with us for a few days. Her school class recently celebrated Hairy Maclary's 30th birthday as a project and each student was able to take him home and then write a story about his stay.
Hairy Maclary loved his afternoon tea with Hannah, lol.
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for your visit xx
