Lace Baby Blanket

After seeing Saffy on Instagram post a lovely picture of her baby blanket I decided to buy the pattern (available via Etsy or Ravelry).

I've wanted some yellow in the flat for a while so thought this would be a great addition to use as a throw and to use as a lap blanket when the evenings get colder; wow don't I sound like a granny?! I used Hobbycraft's own make in yellow as I had it from another project and hardly used it. When that came to an end I didn't have any plans to go to Hobbycraft so used a cream colour (Sirdir Hayfield Bonus) and now that has finished I've moved on to Stylecraft Special DK in Parchment bought via Deramores as well as Cream in the hopes that that will be enough to finish it off - somehow I think I'll need a bit more.

The pattern was a bit confusing to begin with but now I've picked up all the stitches and each round its pretty self explanatory. After working on it for a while and once the beige yarn was nearly running out I decided to stop there. The great thing about blankets is that you can go back to them at any time so for now it sits comfortably on the back of the sofa. I'm sure in time I'll want to expand it but I'm happy to have finished it for now.
