Other Recent Gift Projects

Here are a few other projects I have done recently that I have pictures from to share :)

I made this blanket and hat set using the Loopy Love Blanket pattern from Moogly. I used 3 different colors of Inca Eco cotton yarn by Galler Yarns that I have had for awhile. The border was mostly made up as I went. I think I did 1 row of sc’s all around in each of the colors. Then a row of dc’s with the green. Then with the yellow I did shells with corners that were regular dc’s to make the corners feel a little more decorative.

This next project is my most recent new baby gift. My friends were going with a “moon and stars” theme so I decided instead of a typical rectangle blanket I would make a star shaped play blanket and attach some stars on it, keeping the nursery room color theme in mind.

I used CARON Jumbo Ombre in the color Faded Jeans. I started with the beginning rows of the star from a pattern, but quickly just opted for regular rows of dc and increasing every other row. So I would not say I followed an actual pattern except to get me started. For the border I finished with a row of [sc, picot, sc].

Then I added some small stars and based mine from this pattern. I wanted the stars to be a bit bigger than the pattern called for, so I did another round of dc’s and thus was able to get 6 points for my stars instead of 5 since I had more stitches. Then I just secured them to the blanket with the tail which I left extra long since I knew I needed some for this purpose. I really like how it turned out :)

Here is the blanket in its new home!

Up next will be some personal projects I have completed. Thanks for reading!

Finally an update!

In the handful of years it has been since I last updated, I have continued to make tons of baby blankets for friends & family. While I did not get a photo of each one, here are a handful I did manage to grab a photo of before gifting them :) All these ones used a standard C2C pattern. For the border, I would do a round of [sc, ch3] all the way around. Then I would do 3 dc’s into each ch3. You can get close up photos of this and a longer explanation in this post.

I will do another post next of some of the other projects I have done using other patterns. Enjoy the colorful gallery :)

Patchwork Squares Blanket

I wanted to share a few more projects that I have wrapped up recently, all baby blankets as I relax between my 38th & 39th week of pregnancy. The big day is right around the corner, I can hardly believe it!

The nursery room is all set and I wanted to add a few personal touches to it to make it complete.

First up is a pattern I found awhile back that I wanted to use with our nursery colors. I liked the mix and match look of the squares and knew it would be something I could do relatively quickly as the patterns are fairly basic. Continue Reading →

Striped Chevron Blanket Legacy

My Grandmother has made countless chevron striped blankets for our family, I honestly cannot say how many she actually made, but its a LOT. I personally am the proud owner of 3 of them. The first, pictured below on the left was one she made for me when I was younger because it matched the wallpaper in my room growing up. The one on the right was made for my sister around the same time.
