RH SS UFO & FOs

I realised I don’t usually show any UFOs here and wonder what it says about me (no, I don’t want to know, can’t you spot a rhetorical question?!)

So here is a UFO, a baby blanket I’m making for a friend’s new baby girl, born this September. I’m using the 8 oz skein of Red Heart Super Saver in Light Coral that I got for my August CAT PAC from Kat over at Crochetlist.

The pattern is from Angelcrafts, and you can find it here. The yarn is obviously Worsted Weight, and I’m using a K/6.5mm Boye hook. Instead of the 180 chain the pattern originally calls for, I chained 123 (don’t ask!) and that makes it about 30″ wide, which I reckon should be enough. I think I’ll work it to 30″ square, and then do an edging. Maybe not the one in the pattern, it’s too holey, which the blanket already is, anyway.

So if you have any ideas on nice 2-3 row edgings, please tell me.

And here are a pair of cute FOs! Booties for another friend’s baby, a boy this time:

The pattern is from Darcy Richardson, and very easy and quick. I finished this pair in just about 2 hours, with about WW yarn and a 3.50mm hook.

In love with sewing, weaving, crochet, and with bags and pouches and fabric. I love colour and pattern and texture. I love having my hands busy. Some day I hope my craft will become my day job.
