Back in February, I started a blanket for my son, a Babette blanky which was very much inspired through this blog here > Lavoresfl Babette Blanket from my friend Fatima. Thanks for the inspiration my Dear and for sharing your talent, much appreciated.
I took the blanket with me on holiday to try and finish, and I did, but the project went a bit pear shape at the end. You will see the pictures at the end. The blanket stayed in Brazil with my mum, she loved the blanket so much that my son asked me if he could give his blanky to his granny and of course I agreed and promised to do another blanket for him. (not a Babette, I don't think I can cope anymore with the join part of this project).
Unfortunately at the end of the project the shape of the blanket went a bit twisted for the second time that I had tried to straiten up the whole blanket before but this time I didn't want to undo the whole project for the third time, so I went ahead and finish and left a bit wonky and we gave it to my sons granny and she was very happy with the present, she loved it.
I had a great pleasure on doing this blanket. Considering that I'm a slow kind of crocheter for me went quit quickly. I used the stylecraft DK yarn, a very soft yarn and great to work with, I liked so much that my next project I will use the same yarn. I do have some leftover yarn from this project that I will use to do a new blanket for my son but I may need to buy a few more skins to complete the project.
The picks below was taking on Gran's home in Brazil last week, we both miss our time there. Below you can see the young man with his granny and one pick of me feeling a bit shay behind the blanket.
I have a big bag of bliss already for my next project, will share more soon.
