Pink and blue

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!

Project specs

    I must commend you for these finished projects. They’re beautiful! And remember, these words are from one who has spent half of her life doing a lot of crochet and is still doing it whenever she has a chance.

    That blue shawl is gorgeous! I think I know where I’m going to get all my yarn project ideas from. I’ll just come to your website and make the same things! 🙂
