yummy yarn

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

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 vi
brant 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 whi
te 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!

Masha'Allah tabarak'Allah congratulations on your pregnancy. I'm sure the blanket will be just fine for your new arrival Insha'Allah.

Kind regards,

Wa alaykum salaam,

No no no! It's not for my baby as I'm not pregnant! It's a baby in the family that I'm waiting for :)

Oooops! So sorry, I didn't realize. When you were saying you'd believed the baby would be on the small side just like his/her siblings, I just thought you were referring to your other children when they were babies.

I feel so embarrassed, excuse me. The yarn though looks really nice, and like the colors too.

Assalaamu Alaykum,

No! Don't be embarrassed! I should have worded things better in the post. :) I was actually referring to me little nieces and nephew.

Thanks for all of your comments. I really appreciate the feedback sis!
