Progress of the babyblanket so far.



This is the progress so far, i'm having loads of fun trying out, frogging, even thinking about what to use of my skills, before i fall asleep (which probably is not a good idea:)

A little detail, knitted leaves. I have used these leaves in a pattern of a pillowcover, i made a long time ago. The challenge was to knit the leave from memory. I first just knitted the leaf, but that didn't stand out in the freeform. I added some purlstitches to the sides, and that worked out fine!

Of this detail i'm particularly proud, the combination of knitting and crochet works really well! It looks like a tree, or two hands, holding a ball, or maybe the bun?

  1. OK, so you just confirmed for me that scrumbling would FOR SURE not be for me: I HHHHHHATE frogging (wish you could clone your love of it into me {chortle})!

    1. You should give it a go!!!! Frogging is just me.... When i cook up something, i just try and try and try, till i get it right. But i'm a perfectionist. And, dear... Patience is a virtue, that CAN be achieved:)

  2. Oh, I have patience all right...but selectively, LOL! Certain things are simply too tedious for me (read: "boring")---I need constant freshness/novelty. I suppose one could cheat and simply connect things with a bit of lace thread kind of thing (a la Irish Crochet), but the effect is not the same, plus that makes for a very flimsy fabric. {sigh}

    1. My flaw is, i can't let go... Sometimes to my disadvantage, but in crochet and knitting it's a blessing in disguise:) think of me as a bulldog with a fres bone...
