My little girl turns one this week! Sniff, sniff. She has proven her loyalties to gender stereotypes and has embraced all things doll related. She doesn’t know yet what a doll bed is so I completely expect her mind to be blown when on her birthday I give her my doll bed from when I was a little girl. I thought I needed to add something new to this old thing so I made her this flower blanket using Attic24‘s Summer Garden Granny Square. This is only the fourth or so crochet project I’ve done but the second from Attic24. I adore her patterns, plus Lucy is about as cute as can be and one of those women who after reading her blog you so wish you could sit and have tea with.
I had fun with this project but my real motive for this was to try to get my crochet juices flowing to work on my Babette blanket that has been languishing for months now. As my second crochet project, this was either really ambitious or really stupid, I haven’t decided yet (a little of both perhaps?). My husband and I both wanted something pretty warm and heavy, so this is worked with worsted weight with a C hook.
