In other news me and Mr Knitwit treated ourselves to a curry last night to celebrate being on track with paying off the wedding and boy am I feeling it today! I mean boy! Trust me I love curry (well I say curry I have a korma) but boy is my stomach sensitive to the spices they use!
Anyhoo sitting on the sofa feeling sorry for myself gave me a good excuse to finish my latest project!
A diagonal knit baby blanket with a crocheted boarder! Yerp that right I actually crocheted a boarder! And it don't look half bad!
Mr Knitwit doesn't like the wool but I actually think it turned out kinda sweet looking! I especially like the diagonal next to the straight boarder.
And I love my felt flowers I really think they add a lil something to the blanket!
I am so proud of myself for doing a crochet boarder it think its the first time I've ever crocheted something that looks half decent!
Size wise its not a huge blanket because I was running out of wool, but I'd say its juts the right size for a car seat or pram blanket, or even as an emergency changing mat!
I already have a recipient in mind for this, I just hope she likes it!
I made sure I properly secured the buttons on the flowers as well, cos you know babies will destroy things in 20 seconds or less!
I've not include a picture of the back because well its pretty much the same as the front but without the flowers and because its got a personal message sewn to it, and I don't like to share all my secrets on the internet!
