During this time I had news that a cousin of mine was expecting a baby late October. So I hunted for a pattern that would slightly challenge me but not too much. Famous last words.
I found a lovely teddy bear filet blanket, designed by Cylinda Mathews at www.crochetmemories,com. I used Stylecraft Special DK in lemon and white. I also got some pale lemon ribbon for threading through the the eyelets and tying into bows.
That doesn't look too hard I thought. Started off ok until I got to the teddy bear and then I realised that you had to remember which direction you're coming from otherwise it doesn't look right from the right side. Yes.......I did have to do some frogging, in fact plenty of frogging.
Baby arrived a little late; Kitty Primrose and the blanket is winging its way to her as I type.
I hope she will be all snuggly in it.
