Klaar! 'n Kombersie vir Baba K .

Ek wou al lankal die Squaring the Big Circle -patroon van Signed with an Owl maak!
Gelukkig was daar 'n babaseuntjie op pad.
For the longest time I wanted to hook the Squaring the Big Circle pattern of Signed with an Owl.
Happily, a baby boy was on his way.

One finished blanket.

Ek het in die aand gehekel (partykeer), baie in die kar terwyl ek wag voor die skool, of as passasier op pad iewers.  En in die tuin terwyl die kinders speel en ons braai op Erfenisdag - hekel is mos ook ons erfenis ;-)
I hooked in the evenings (sometimes), often in the car, waiting at school, or as passenger en route somewhere. And in the garden while the kids are playing and we're having a braai on Heritage Day - crochet is part of our heritage!

Hooking on a hot day is better with a nice ginger beer!

Die randjie was eenvoudig, omdat die kombers so bont is: net nog 'n ry granny trebles, en daarna 'n ry half-trebles (donkerblou).  In retrospek sal ek eerder dubbelrye van elke kleur gebruik het, en die 'squaring' ook in die ligte denimblou.
The edge was kept simple, as the blanket was so colourful: just another row of granny trebles, followed by a row of hlf-trebles (dark blue).  In retrospect, I should have used doubles rows of each colour, and should have done the squaring in the light denim-blue as well. 

At the edge.

Een van my mooiste blokke, het gehou van hierdie kleurkombinasie.  Die fokus is effe vrot en versag met Soft Focus - ek het hoog bo-op die bed gestaan en balanseer!
One of my favourite squares - I like this colour combination. The focus is more than poor - I was wobbling high on the bed while taking photos!

This square had my favourite colour sequence.

Tevrede.  Ek sal weer hierdie patroon doen. Hoop Baba K en sy ma hou ook daarvan!
I'm happy and would hook this pattern again.  Hope Baby K and his mom like it as well!

Done!
Ek het verskeie kleure van Vinnis Nikkim (katoen) en Bambi (organiese bamboes) gebruik. Dit word met die hand gekleur en gee dan die mooi verouderde effek.
I used various colours of Vinnis Nikkim (cotton) and Bambi (organic bamboo).  It is hand-dyed, resulting in the ageing effect. 


And ready to go.


Hierdie kombers is gedoen as deel van die One-a-Day CAL
The blanket was hooked as part of the One-a-Day CAL


PS
Onthou die lang, lang geveg met die ReĆ«nboog Ripple?  Hy is nou tuis in die Hartenbos Huisie, tesame met die blokkieskombers wat ek en my sisi saamgehekel het April.
Remember the long, long struggle with the Rainbow Ripple?  It  is at home now in The Little Beach House, together with the mini-squares blanket that my sis and I completed during the April holidays.

Gorgeous colours, love the blanket, especially the lighter blue....I love to see what can be produced in those five minutes here and there when you would otherwise do nothing, I've been crocheting this evening while my two oldest boys have been swimming...how smug am I that I am making my Christmas presents when people smile at me!

Thanks for all the kind comments! I really loved this pattern, but will do it with a more solid colour pattern next time. I received a beautiful photo of the baby having a nap under his blankie - with the hot weather we've been having the last week or so, the cotton is a blessing.
