Loving Colours

It has been a little while since I have shown you all the projects I have got on the go, as I had been mainly focusing on my nephew's patched baby blanket. Although speaking of my nephew, he was due to be born late September but he arrived on Sunday morning! He is only 1.59 kg and is in a little incubation tank, but otherwise he is healthy for only being 31 weeks along in the pregnancy! The nurse said that if all is well, he will come out of the incubation tank when he weighs 1.9 kg. He is not expected to leave the hospital for another 6 weeks, which makes sense since he should still be inside mummy's tummy right now! So I will keep you posted on him whenever I get any updates, and hopefully a little cute photograph too. Oh and his name is John, named after his daddy and his papa! 

Back to the topic of crochet! My WIPs...

A new project that I have started this week, it is a granny stripe scarf that I making from my new Stylecraft Special DK stash. I have been making a lot of blankets, and a lot of squares recently so I wanted a little bit of a change! I am thinking a pink and purple scarf for this winter, and maybe a hat to match.

I've had this granny square blanket going on for a while, although its been on the back burner due to a lack of bright coloured stash. It is now back on the front burner since I have my new colourful stash, and I am loving every minute of making this one!

A couple of weeks ago I showed you some pompoms, and mentioned that I was going to make a rug with them. It is a fun project but a very time consuming one as I am making the pompoms by hand and having to attach them all individually to the jute canvas, and I am considering getting some of those pompom makers in different sizes to speed the process up a little.

That is all from me for now.

Take care!

    I love your scarves and hats in the Granny style. Can't wait to see more. The pom poms are so fun. I wanna stomp on them. Every time I need to make a pom pom,I start hankering for a pom pom maker. I say go for it since you're doing this project.

  16. Pom pom makers are the way forward. My bloke reminds me that some people's hobby is golf or motorbiking or going to Spas and then I put my little craft purchases into perspective and it always makes my life much easier. Definitely get some. Jo x
