baby things


good to see you!

it is wednesday and it is time to tell you that i started two new projects, a baby blanket at the request of my former neighbor and a bag as a gift for friends with a baby.

baby blanket

my former neighbors expect their first child within the next few weeks and she would like to have a blanket that is modern, baby blue and boyish. i hope this simple stitch pattern of phildar yarn called cabotine, will fulfill this wish. i will add some other shades too, to spice it up a little bit.


storage bag

the bag will be a storage bag and for this project i found suitable yarn on the local market. it is of scheepjes (a dutch label) from their collection of only a few years ago, but i think it still looks lovely.

both yarns are a mix of acrylic and cotton. 


and now you’re up to date of my crochet activities:)

  11. What is the pattern you used for the baby blanket? I like it and it looks nice and simple.

    • Hello Jennifer,
      Thanks for stopping by!
      I will try to explain the pattern later this week, I need time to write it down:) Hopefully I can publish it on Friday or next week.

  12. aw your former neighbours are very lucky to be getting such thoughtful gifts 🙂

  13. What a nice simple baby pattern – I think that’s best. And yes, it strikes me as modern in that kind of porcelain blue. Hope all goes well with the birth – aren’t babies more fun when they’re someone else’s?

  14. Both are great projects! I have been working on a similar bag for a couple of months. I really need to get it done!

  15. what a lovely blanket and bag! way to go! 🙂

  16. Both of your projects are looking nice. I believe the new parents will be happy with them. 🙂
