My Creative Space - Crochet


After my lesson last week I am now truly enjoying crochet. My granny square is still growing slowly and I've added a green into the blanket. When I started it last week I only had the blue and cream yarn so I worked with them and as it grew I thought it would make a perfect baby blanket but I think it looks more suited to a boy and the baby arriving soon is going to be a girl. Should I start again or try and add another colour that could make it a bit more feminine? I still think it would make a beautiful blanket but I don't know whether I should give it as a gift to them or not now, what do you think?



Still on the subject of crochet and babies, I found this sweet and simple crochet beanie pattern. My model for today is Miss 6's baby Brookie, fitting her very nicely I think.


I'm just waiting to be asked to make another especially for her but this one I made is for another little baby arriving soon.

  3. My little girl (4) has rejected pink and is in love with blue, so you just never know!

    I poppeed over from Kristy's and I'm staying for a while. Hope that's okay! x

  5. I agree, it doesn't have to be to pink for a girl! Sometimes it is nice to have something a bit less pink I am sure! Great job. Crochet is great fun!

  6. Just gorgeous colours. Would definitely suit either a boy or girl. And you never know, they may have the sex confused, so you'd be covered either way!

  7. That is such an adorable beanie!! Grace was a winter baby and I always had her head covered in one - but none were as pretty as the one you've made :) Your blanket is going to look wonderful - I don't think you have to necessarily have pink in there for it to suit a girl but a bit of pink wouldn't hurt either. Look forward to seeing it finished x

  8. Very pretty indeed. I've been seeing a bit of crochet work in the blogger community and it's just fantastic. I'm terrified of going anywhere near crochet work - I may get addicted! My 'portfolio' of hobbies is growing exponentially!

  9. Your crochet is beautiful. And I definitely think you could give the blanket to a little girl. These days, anything goes. And the beanie is so sweet. If only I could crochet! x

  11. Wow Catherine, look at you go! As the mother of three girls, I love anything for them that isn't the traditional pink. I think its gorgeous! And that hat is pretty fabulous too. The stitches are so regular and perfect. It looks like you've been at it forever. I am really looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.
    I hope you are having a happy weekend. X

  12. Your baby blanket is coming along well... and yes it would be a wonderful gift for a little girl. There is still plent of room to add a pink round if you're worried about it... the colours are all so soft and muted. Beautiful for a baby. Loving your super sweet beanie too.

  13. Wow Catherine, you have been SOOOO busy! Your crochet is really taking off, great work! The baby stuff is simple and gentle and perfect for a little baby.

    That slow cooker recipe is very similar to one I make but I add sweet potato and egg plant to it. Yummmmm.
    Imagine life without a slow cooker? No! Don't, it's just to awful to comprehend.
