good-night and sweet dreams...

I crocheted this baby blanket in record time. It took me just under two weeks, working with no pattern. I was given a similar one when I had my first baby and absolutely loved the delicate pattern and knew that one day I would have to have a go at replicating it.

So when I was invited to a virtual baby shower organised by Cass and Belinda for this crafty mum-to-be I knew straight away what I was going to make!

I really enjoyed making this blanket and was really pleased with how it turned out - so much so that I started doubting I'd be able to let go of it. But then I saw the adorable little bundle I had made it for and packaged it up to be sent to it's rightful owner.

The blanket measures 87cm (34") square so is perfect for in the crib or pram.

Good-night lovely Kitty and sweet dreams.....
