One-A-Day...Towards a baby blanket

Hi fellow One-A-Dayers!

I decided to give you a photo-log of my progress this week on a baby blanket for a friend:

Testing the pattern - which one shall I use?

Getting colours together

I'm using Vinni's - a local yarn.  You'll see that the textures differ: the smooth, duller yarn is Nikkim, a 100% cotton.  The glossy one is Serina - organic bamboo, and the lumpy one is Bambi, a bamboo/cotton mix.  Lovely to work with!

Day 1 - First Square is done!

Day 2 - Hooking the next 4

Day 3 - Four Circles to be Squared

Day 4 - The centre of the blanket!

Day 5 - Filling in the four gaps

And this is how far I've come.  I'll only do bits and pieces this week, as school started and we're all getting into the routine.  

f you would like to participate in One-a-Day, please link your project in the Tuesday's Tallies at Carole's blog, Gingerbread Girl.
