today an update completely dedicated to blankets.


last week i told you about the yellow picnic blanket, that went well until i had run out of my 3 balls. i only have 8 squares and a little and at this moment the store has no new yellow yarn for me to buy, except neon yellow. i wait another week, otherwise i think of a solution.

the blocks blanket is almost finished, a somewhat unusual blanket. it has two halves and along one long side, i have made small buttonholes ​​and on the other half i need to fasten these little buttons. then the blanket is ready.

friday i started a small blanket for my mother, she wants something new but don’t know which colors she likes to have. these squares are crocheted of acrylic yarn, partly from my stash, some newly purchased.

the squares are again – like the doggie blanket – made ​​with the pattern for the colorful blanket, only this time seven instead of four rows. because it is such a simple pattern, i can play with the color palettes.

  1. Your blanket and this style is nice! 🙂 Earlier I wasn’t able to comment on a WordPress blog, I fixed it couple of days back with my other mail I’d. I missed lot of pretty things here.
    Your images are always bright and clear, how do you take those?

    • Hello sweet Preetiraj,
      Thank you for your sweet comments, I am happy with them:)
      The photos on my blog I made with an inexpensive digital Canon camera, without flashlight and often macro. I’m not a good photographer at all but I like to try to get photos as clear as I can.
      Thanks again for visiting and your kind words!
