Two or three more evenings should see me finishing my baby boy crochet blanket. It’s been a lovely project for mindless winter crochet in front of subtitled European dramas.
It’s a lot bigger than this now but I have to admit I need something a little more challenging.
So I’m indulging myself in some baby knitting also for the advancing baby addition to the wider family.
I’ve spent time on Ravelry and time on Pinterest having a good look around for some contemporary patterns for a young family but there’s nothing like curling up with a pattern book. This one is pretty good. I can see at least 4 patterns I’d love to knit up and a growing baby will need at least one or two of these!
I remember knitting for my own daughter, when I had time, before she was born; a long long time ago. I loved how I could whiz up a front or a sleeve or two in an evening.
But it’s been a good few months since I’ve picked up my needles. I’ve set my sights on these.
I expect they will seem pretty simple to many of you but this is the clean look I was going for. I’m aiming to have a go at some intarsia knitting before the year is out. I want to be knitting snowflake jumpers as well as thelandroverswife and Mollieandclaire but that is a lot to live up to.
Saturday will see me heading into town (Wakefield) for my bi monthly head of foils so I’ll nip into the yarn shop at the same time for something baby soft.
And of course I couldn’t bypass an opportunity for some baby crochet amigurumi.
I’ve finally treated myself to this.
Whilst I love the neutrals, I shall be making these up in vivid baby appealing colours. I’m hoping to use up some existing cotton stash.
Oh, I’m so excited for a new project! Or three!
Love, Lucie xx
