The baby blanket is finished! WOOHOO! and the baby I made it for is only 14 weeks old (oops). I was planning on getting it to his mum before he was born, but then he came early (three weeks early) and bang went that idea.

Still it is finished!

It is the first time I have acutally placed my squares in a pattern, rather than randomly, and I think it really works with these squares. And I did a really simple edging - spiraled like the squares, complete with an uneven finish.

Love love love it!

Now I just have to block it, in the hope it will help straighten up those edges (something I have never bothered to do to any of my blankets before) and pass it onto its owner. Ah, it's Friday night and I am off to block a baby blanket - we're livin' the high life 'round here!

how to make easy-peasy arm warmers

Take one old (preferably holey) pair of knee high socks.

Then take a pair of scissors, and cut off the toe of said socks and you're done! Ta-da: one pair of easy-peasy arm warmers!!!

Playing along with show and tell and my creative space

A package arrived in the post the other day. I was curious, we hardly ever get mail that isn't in the form of either bills or junk mail. Actually it arrived on our wedding anniversary, so at first I thought it might be for that.

Turns out I was wrong.

I opened the parcel and it was this:

A fabulous curlypops bib for little-miss-e.

And this was the card:

I have absolutely no idea who it is from, and you know what, I find that kinda lovely. So I just wanted to say thankyou - whoever you are...
