A few months ago I started a secret blanket, it was for my dear friend who is having her first baby, which I am super excited about. I finished the blanket a while ago now but have been waiting in great anticipation for her baby shower to give it to her. And a couple of weekends ago the babyshower finally rolled around. The blanket was finished, the bunting made and a little vest knitted. But disaster struck and I woke up the morning of the shower feeling a whole lot worse for wear. After passing out in the shower in the morning I decided I’d see how I went but by 10am I was no better and with the heater cranked and me huddled under 4 blankets and a hoodie on, it was clear leaving the house wasn’t an option. I cried and cried ‘I have to go it’s her first baby, I want to be there’ but reality struck and I had to cancel. So sent Mr C around with her pressies, which she loved and I can now show you.
This blanket was a true joy to work on. It is the first thing I have crocheted for a while now that was for pure love, and there’s something about that kind of crochet that just makes me so much joyful. I finished it quiet quickly probably because I enjoyed it so much.
The mummy to be loved the colours and I was given the best complement ever when giving something hand made which was ‘It is something I would of chosen myself’. That was music to my ears it made this blanket even more special. I hope she gets lots of use out of it and baby loves all the cuddles he will receive in it.
Love to all
