I haven't done a crochet update for a while, now you remember I have three baby blankets to make here's one completed. Colour wise this was easy since the mum to be knows what sex she is having.
The blanket is one I've done before Rainbow Ripple Blanket, this will be my third. But to change things up a bit I've made a matching security blanket and while I found the pattern for the elephant easy I couldn't get on with the blanket so I gave up and made the Rainbow Ripple and it worked out fine. It could simply be me.
I stitched sleeping eyes and they are fully stitched and secured and should survive any washing and being dragged around.
Still not convince the colours are truly a baby blanket so it could another project on hold but I absolutely love making Helen Shrimpton's Rosslyn Blanket. It is a paid patterned and nearly had heart failure when I printed out the pattern only 40 pages and in colour too.
I have progressed a bit since I took the photo and I'm trying my best to make it mainly cream and I using only the four colours. My wool is Stylecraft Special love their colours, in this case I'm using Cream, Sage, Lavender and the new Buttermilk.
