Tonight we will be visiting a collegue of mine who is expecting a baby soon. I made her a baby blanket out of a charm pack Flirt by Sandy Gervais (actually I used half of the charm pack and will use the other half to make a blanket for another collegue who is expecting).

  Baby blanket Flirt Sandy GervaisI like the colours of this fabric series, not ‘too baby’, but still nice for a baby blanket. As you can see I took it easy, no sashings, no real quilting, just plain squares with a border. I also did not use any batting but a fleece backing.

It was all done by machine, except the embroidery within every other square and along the edge.

I had never tried mitered corners before, but now I really love it, it looks so much neater! With this tutorial it was easy peasy.

Finished the baby cardi today. It was my admirable intention to use up some stash for this project, because -as any knitter- I’m gaining more and more yarn. From an earlier project I had some blue and white Karisma left over, which I thought would be great for this baby shower gift. Long story short: with just half a sleeve left to be knitted, I ran out of wool and had to buy a new skein – so after finishing I ended up with the new blue skein still nearly complete and one white skein untouched. Well, let’s look at it from the bright side, that’s one skein less than I started with…

The pattern is from Garnstudio again. I’m really fond of Scandinavian knitting. Four little deer on the front, four on the back. It’s just cute!

A while ago I bought these nice buttons.

They’re about to be used on a project that I hope to finish within a few days:

Just one sleeve to knit and sew in, and the buttons to attach. Then it can be send to the brand new baby of my cousin!
