Blakes Blanket

I'm knitting a baby blanket for a friend. I found the free pattern HERE and it's knitting up really quickly. 
I was looking for a pale peach wool but I couldn't find the colour I wanted, they were all to bright, so I opted for lemon and I'm glad I did. It looks nice and fresh.
I'd like to welcome to my new followers. Thanks for popping into my world and giving your kind comments. My tardy blogging habits will hopefully be rectified now that the chaos of the last few weeks at junior school are over. 

I have a week to myself as Lily is at Peak Camp 2015 at Chatsworth with Guides. It is so quiet without her around. But it sounds like they are having a whale of a time, even though it has been pouring with rain for the last couple of days! Rowan is off house sitting tomorrow so it will just be me and my DH until Saturday. 

I'm hoping to make a large dent in my to do list, some is already ticked off so I may even have time for a bit of crafting before their return.

Well I'm off to bed before I nod off at the computer.

  1. Love the baby blanket, lovely shade of lemon. I have just started to crochet one in lemon/white/cream. Enjoy the peace and quiet while you can. Hope you find some time for crafting.

  2. Lovely blanket! I hope that you have a great summer of fun! xx

  3. Hi Melanie, your blanket looks lovely and you're right the colour does look nice and fresh. Sorry for not keeping in touch over the past few weeks I'm catching up on my messages this week so will email you very soon x
