When people think pink and blue, they normally think girls and boys.
These projects, however, are both for girls!
My friend Kristin had a super cute baby girl. In celebration, I crocheted up a pink baby blanket. I kind of had to make up the border because I ran out of yarn. The pattern has a wider border, so I just improvised.
Last year I started a blue wrap. It was the first wrap I did that had beads in it. It took forever because:
1. I took forever to buy the beads.
2. I ran out of yarn and took forever to order new yarn.
3. I finally finished the project and took forever weave in the end. (Kind of pathetic seeing as there were only two ends to weave in.)
4.I then took forever to block the project.
5. Finally, I took forever to take a picture.
But now, hooray hooray, it is finished, blocked and photographed! And here it is!
It was the first time I knit something with circular needles and the most advanced project I did, so there are all kinds of mistakes.
But hopefully the pretty beads are distracting enough that no one will notice!
Pattern: Harbour Lights Shawl
Yarn: Madelinetosh Merino Light, Fathom color
Beads: Dyna-Mites silver-lined square hole 6/0 seed beads, light blue color.
How long it took me to finish: A very very very very long time.
