First, a bobbly baby blanket for a bouncing baby boy (Cassia and Pablo’s baby who is named Cedric!). I brought it to them when I went to Adelaide for Cassia’s baby shower, which I took no pictures, whoops.
I picked this design because it doesn’t have lots of holes to catch little babby fingers like a lot of other crochet blankets have. Plus the polka dots are soooooo cute!! They’re also really fun to run your hands over. So nubbly.
The whole thing. I used this pattern, which was quite easy to learn, especially since it had a video. My mom taught me double crochet when I was much younger but everything else since then I’ve learned from youtube.
Little Cedric nice and cozy in his Finnish baby box (Pablo is half Finnish). I used a super soft acrylic yarn that is completely washable. I’m so happy the blanket it getting used.
Second, a bunnyhug for brother Brett’s birthday. (OK technically not a bunnyhug but I just wanted to say something that started with B haha)
As usual, Scott picked the design and I executed. Brett is a big Wolverine fan.
I used waste canvas to do the cross stitching, like I did for Scott’s hoodie. This design was easier to do because it’s actually better when it branches out instead of being a big solid block.
Pretty pleased with how it turned out! And it’s also completely washable.
PS yes I can make one of these for you. Let’s talk.
Grated Expectations Cross Stitch is coming along! I sold two patterns last week! I still have a big checklist of things to improve, and many more new pattern ideas to actually design/stitch/list, but I’m pleased with how it’s going so far.
Here’s what is in my shop at the moment.
What’s your favourite Aussie biccie? Australia has so many types of cookies! I decided to document them. My favourites? Kingston, mint slice, and choc ripples.
Continuing on in the Aussie food theme… Australian ice creams. L-R: Golden Gaytime (actual slogan: “It’s hard to have a Gaytime on your own!”), Cornetto, Bubble O Bill (he has a gumball nose!), and Magnum.
