The “finished” blanket

Okay,ย what I’m about to share now makes me really disappointed and sad. When I came home from Finland I decided to crochet a blanket for Benjam. I had him pick out whatever colors he wanted and ordered the yarns on the internet. I intentionally ordered less because I’m pretty new to this and didn’t really know how big of a blanket I’m going to get with a certain amount of yarn. So I started with the blanket. When I used almost all of my original 16+8 yarns (16 blue-gray, 8 white) I was going to order more. But.. On the store where I ordered them before they didn’t have the white anymore. So I ordered the blue-gray from there and more white from another store. They were supposed to send me both orders sometime in January since they had some kind of Christmas break. But earlier this week I recieved an email from the store where I bought the original 24 yarns and now ordered more blue-gray there, saying that the company isn’t making that color anymore. -.-

So a blanket that was supposed to be 110×190 is only 110×115. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Note to self: NEVER buy yarn on the internet anymore.

Anyway, here’s the blanket.


Crochet Baby Blanket UPDATE

So, who remembers the crocheted baby blanket I made in the summer?! If you don’t, just click here. Anyway, I’ve been thinking of adding something to it. Now that I know who I’m going to give it to, I decided to make pink flowers on the top of it. I really like how it turned out. What about you? ๐Ÿ™‚


Crochet Afghan Baby Blanket

As for another crochet project, this is an afghan baby blanket which I fell in love with since the very beginning. On this one I half followed a youtube video (link below) and half improvised. I used 5 balls of a very soft yarn called Jenika (100g=100m/ball) (sorry, I don’t know anything about yarns :D) and a 10.00 mm hook. This blanket is approximately 100×100 cm. I love how it turned out. I’m thinking of giving it as a baby present, we’ll see. ๐Ÿ™‚
