Once upon a time, I ordered some yarn.
Some Rowan CashCotton. The colours I chose somehow had something to do with my baby's trainers and I blogged about it here. Yes, I even made a square with it. But then I put it all away for the "right" project. I would occasionally stop and have a feel of it as I pulled out other yarns or as I tidied my stash. Then one day, I said to myself, "I must put this yarn to good use NOW!" I started granny-ing away.
And as I did, the softness of the yarn and the combination of soft blue and aqua with vibrant geranium screamed out to me: "BABY"! Yes! This project must be something for a baby. A soft, cozy blanket.
As the blanket grew, I realised that it wouldn't grow too much as I just didn't have enough yarn. I could order some more and sit tight and wait. Who wants to do that though? So I decided to incorporate some white yarn in to it. It just didn't look right. After frogging and trying again, I decided that I would just finish it off and hope for the best.
I do believe that the new-born recipient I have in mind for this blanket will be on the small side like his/her siblings!
So I'm hoping the blanket will be just right for the early days.
So, after a light block and a spritz of lovely linen spray (Egyptian Cotton!) I'm putting this one away for the little one to be snuggled up in in sha Allah!
Of course, I made some flowers with the left over scraps!
And now I have these to play with!
