I am sooo happy to FINALLY share this project I have been working on for what seems like a very long time! This is a baby blanket project that myself and 3 good friends worked on for another friend's new baby boy arrival. Of course I could not post any pics online until after the baby arrived, and he finally did, over 2 weeks late on my birthday! (lucky lucky kid, he picked the best day ever!).
This was an idea we had months ago, we wanted to give our good friend something really special for the birth of her first baby so we decided to make something. I had just got into crochet however the others had never crocheted before, so I, the complete beginner, had to teach them! But it went so well and they picked it up in no time. We had so much fun having crochet and gossip evenings.
We set no rules for the blanket, we each had to do 6 squares of 6 rows and had the same 3 colours but aside from that we could do as we pleased. It turned out we all had very different styles and no two squares were the same. It made for an interesting blanket in the end, but we love it, it kind of reflects our personalities and it's certainly unique!
Well our Friend Fran and her new baby boy loved it, so we are very pleased. Fran even posted a pic of baby Jude fast asleep snuggled up in it, aw!
