Another blanket started

Standard

You would be forgiven for thinking that you have seen this colourful caterpillar before. However this is an entirely new one, made up of the lovely little hexgons I mentioned yesterday, made from the pattern found on Bunny Mummy’s blog.

And here is how they look individually…

I just love the little star/flower shape in the middle of each one. So pretty! I had planned at the beginning to make a boy blanket, using lots of blues, purples and greens. But with that lovely shape it just had to be a girl blanket, and the pinks are already taking over!

I had to go shopping this morning to pick up a couple of extra stitch holders – these little beauties take no time at all to make and my first stitch holder is almost full already. So 2 more should keep me going for a little while longer!

 

I have been catching up on a few blogs this morning too, and have entered a competition over at Jenny Arnott’s blog. I just love the things she makes, they are completely beautiful and always bring a smile to my face. She has just had one of her designs included in Seaside Home.

I now have a chance to win this book – how exciting! I probably won’t win (and if I don’t I may just have to buy the book!) but it’s always fun to enter these things 🙂

  1. Hi Laura,

    Thanks for the share of my giveaway 🙂 your crochet looks fab – I’m quite new to it but really enjoy it! Those hexagons are so cute, might have to give them a go after my squares! Jenny x

  2. Lovely colours there, as always 🙂
    I too join in with competitions, but never win either, hehe 😉
    DQW – Dim Question Warning:
    What do you use the stitch holders for?
    😉

    • All the little hexagons go on the stitch holders! That’s probably not very clear from the picture, but the top pic shows all the finished hexagons on a stitch holder. It stops them from ending up all over the floor or just generally scattered around the house!
