So, Project Projects is up to seven!
Apparently me and maternity leave make excellent bedfellows. I’m sure my bliss will soon be shattered by the piercing cries of a newborn, but until then, my craft has got his hat on and he is totally coming out to play.
This is the little cotton carseat blanket I made for the little one. She is extremely blanketed already, but being due in summer, I thought she could probably do with a light, cool blanket to put her on until I rock out the Rowan in the autumn. I think this will do the trick.
This yarn is so lovely. It’s more Rico – Cotton Blend, which is a really nice cotton/acrylic with contrasty shiny threads running through (somewhere between soft cotton and mercerised). I picked the colours to be a little bit girly, but not insipid, and I think they totally work. If Rico know one thing about yarn, it’s colour.
I winged the pattern – just simple, chunky stripes, and finished the edges off with a little splash of that green.
Carseat – check. Carseat blanket – check. Now all I need is a baby.
