Crochet & Knitting

As I mentioned in a recent post, I have made my very first purchase of Stylecraft Special DK wool. This bundle of gorgeous colours turned up from the UK only a week after placing the order and as it works out to be under $4.00 NZ per 100 gram ball that's super value if you ask me. 

This particular pack is to make Lucy from Attic 24's Cupcake blanket for Hannah and even though I plenty of other projects on the go, I couldn't resist getting this started on Sunday evening. Progress pics to come soon!

A recent crochet finish is this granny square blanket, which I started during Easter weekend back in March.

Using a 100% pure New Zealand merino wool, I have made this for a family member expecting a little girl in July.

A friend of my Mum's has a new granddaughter due later this month so I knitted my favourite baby cardigan in this lovely shade of pink and made a matching hat.

Pattern for the hat can be found here.

See you soon xx

Gorgeous colours! I have started the Attic 24 Coast blanket in Stylecraft and really like it for crochet. Your finished blanket looks really soft and it's perfect for a new baby.
