“A change is as good as a rest” they say, so I was thrilled when my friend asked if I could make her another blanket for her baby but this time bigger to fit her cot. Her babies cot and room is very subtle and neutral but there was a sparkle in her eye when she suggested something pink. Now pink is always out of bounds as I am a purple girl, so I promptly went to select a few shades of pink to commence a blanket. I made my selection; bright pink, pale pink and oops a purple one but it did have a pink fleck in.
With my recent project for my boys involving larger time consuming squares I opted for smaller squares, plus I thought this would work better for a smaller blanket anyway.
I chose to do a granny square I did many years ago when I bought my first house and filled it with afghans. A very simple granny square but very effective as it creates a “rib” effect by anchoring the treble around the post instead of using the chain at the top. It is also very dense and warm.
I managed to get the blanket finished over Christmas and needless to say, she was thrilled to bits with it. It’s always a pleasure to make things when they are appreciated and always a pleasure to go and have cuddles with her little baby who is now crawling.
I hope you like it.
