Adventures with Wool - No. 3

I'm browsing knitting patterns at the moment as I miss having something to do in front of the television in the evenings and I realised I had some more finishes from last year that I hadn't blogged this time of the woollen variety!

I made lots of these hats when I was pregnant so made another one in a bigger size for James in the autumn.

I also finally finished the crocheted ripple blanket.  The pattern is on Attic 24's blog.  I loved making this curled up on the sofa in the evenings in front of mindless television.  I'm really missing it and am tempted to make another one but this time big enough for me!

I'm making the most of making James model my woollen goodies before he is old enough to object!

Thomas' Quilt

My very good friend from work, Lauren, had a lovely little boy 3 weeks ago and today I got to meet him and hand over his quilt in person.

When I offered to make Lauren a quilt for the impending arrival I asked if she had nursery colours in mind.  She sent me this photo which I hope I matched well. Terrible weather this morning meant not very good photos!

In the middle of January I started with this selection of fabrics and finished hand stitching the binding down last night.

Fabric: Safari Soiree by Dan Stiles for Birch Fabrics, Kona Snow and Aqua Sketch
Pattern: Little Man from Camille's Simplify book
