The Completed Blanket

Last year, I was asked by my sister to make something special for her soon to be baby. I took the challenge up and for the past few months I have been busying myself making a baby blanket.


Today I have finished that blanket and to say I am thrilled with it is a slight understatement.


I took up crochet exactly a year ago and as of yet I have not made anything that has yet to be completed. I started of a blanket for myself which is half done {it was a massive task for a first timer} I then made some bunting but again that was only half wittingly done.


I was nervous about committing myself to something with my track record of uncompleted jobs but I am so pleased I stuck to it and now have a completed crochet project.

I even managed to put on a border to complete the blanket, which I am so so pleased with. Its been a labour of love and at times I have wanted to give up, especially on that last round when you know you are so close to the end, and everything seems to be going wrong.


I am really looking forward to seeing my new nephew snuggled up in this blanket, but in the mean timeĀ I am eager to start another project!

    The blanket looks great! What project do you think you’ll work on next?

      I still haven’t decided but think I’m going to keep it simple and maybe do a stripe blanket, I really want to try a ripple blanket at some point!

      Thanks for popping by x

    The blanket looks absolutely gorgeous! I’m fairly new to crocheting too and I’m smitten with home made blankets.

      I love them too, I am one of those people who love to snuggle on the sofa with a blanket and especially a homemade one!
