Dolly blanket!?

a coaster...
Well .... what has been happening between "Wet Monday" and "Wet Friday?" Mostly work, although I have finished a little blanket for an imminent baby. I say little, because it is exactly that ... I got fed up crocheting in white. It will probably end up as a doll's blanket.

I started making a large granny square and did a few rows of granny stripes either end to make it rectangular in shape and then a few rounds of treble clusters for the border; finished with the lacy blanket edging from "Cute and Easy Crochet."

To add a bit of colour I made some popcorn flowers from "Adorable Crochet for Babies and Toddlers". I hadn't used the popcorn stitch before and I'm loving the result. These flowers are addictive.

So I now have the pleasure of starting a new project and I'm moving away from white for now...

Hope the sun shines for you this weekend x
