February Already?!

Hello February! 

I have a lot of things to show you since January has been very productive! I was beginning to work on a small daisy blanket and I showed you a photograph of a yarn stash which I planned to turn into lots of cat blankets for the local Cat's Protection shelter.

Here are eight blankets that I made, that are now living at the shelter and I have even see a photo of a cat snuggled up in one of them! I am quite pleased knowing that I have helped others.

My small daisy blanket is all finished! I am going to use this as a pram blanket when the baby arrives. I used the Flower Square pattern by Color 'n Cream as I thought it was lovely and for the edging I used Attic24's Spot On Edging pattern.

At the moment I have two WIPs on the go....

A foxy hooded cowl that I am making for my friend, using the Flint Fox Cowl pattern by Heidi May. I altered the cowl on mine a bit so that you can open it at the front as that is what my friend wanted. This project is pretty much finished, it is just waiting for a big button to be attached and then this will make one person very happy since she loves foxes.

My second WIP is an Attic24 coloured themed corner to corner blanket as the colours I am using are from Attic24's Sunny Granny Stripe, as I really loved the colour combination but I didn't feel like making a granny stripe blanket. For the pattern I am using Red Hearts Corner-to-Corner Throw pattern, I have always liked this pattern and it has been on my to try list for years, and now has come the time where it is now on my hook and I absolutely love it!

Aside from crochet I have recently been counting weeks until I finish work for maternity leave and counting down the weeks until the baby will be expected to arrive. Currently I have three weeks of work left, and just over seven weeks until the baby will be here. I still can't quite believe I have a little person wriggling about inside my stomach. With the increasing number of hospital and midwife appointments to attend to as the weeks go by, the seriousness of it is certainly starting to sink in! It has flown by so quickly, and I am really thankful that I have been able to carry this baby so far with good health. Although I am not sure how I will be feeling in my next blog post to you, possibly feeling like a big whale he he.

I think that is all I have to share for the moment!

Take care,

Hazel x
