A Village Life

Now that my friends have received their gifts in the post, I can finally give everyone a peep at the projects that had me occupied for a few weeks. 
I found a quick and easy crochet pattern for a baby granny square throw.  It looked so soft and cuddly that I had to give it a go.  The first one turned out soft and girly, perfect for my friend Estelle at Under A Pink Moon and her daughter Emerson.  Funnily enough I finished the blanket on the same day that I received a package of hand me down clothes from Estelle and Emerson for my dear little Gigi.  A perfect thank you gift to send to them.

My next throw was crocheted with autumn hued colors in a much more masculine scheme.  This one seemed perfect for my dear friend Tiffany and her household of boys.  Having limited amounts of each color of yarn, I had to guess if I'd make it all the way around with a certain color or not.  This combined with my 2 girls running around me while I crocheted, picking up balls of yarn and unravelling things meant that I kept making mistakes and had to pull out row after row to re-do the blanket.  I must have gone back about 5 times before I realized that I should only crochet once the children have gone to bed.  Lesson learned. 

And hopefully 2 happy friends in far away places are taking comfort in my little projects!
