I couldn't resist, I have started a new blanket last week! I just can't help it, crochet blankets are my favourite things to make! It is going to be a simple granny square cover for my sons bed. I took him over to the yarn shop and let him select the colours. He chose a lots of greens and blues, but also red and pink, which I didn't expect, but really love! :) This blanket will be my new one-a-day project, as I will make only one square in the evening and join it as I go. So it will take me around 18 weeks to finish it, but hey, there is no hurry!
And this leaves me some time for other things, like finishing all Christmas presents before December (hopefully!!) I'm planning to give everybody in my family a handmade gift this year. And the first one is already finished! I made a water-bottle cover for my little sister. I hope she will like it! I have used this pattern here, and just made it a little longer to cover the bottle and add a few rows of ribbing.
And finally, I have started to use my sewing machine! The poor thing is waiting to get used for more than a year now and I was simply to scared to start. Last week I thought why not doing it like I have learned to crochet and knit, starting with easy little things and leave the complicated stuff for later.
I found this pocket tissue holder tutorial for a start and it was really easy to do!
Summer holidays have started here this week and I'm looking forward to a lot of time outdoors exploring the nature with my little son!
Take care everybody and thank you so much for reading!!
