Last week on Ons Hekel, at least two baby blankets were finished.
I completed this one in V-stitch:
|A blankie for Lerato's baby girl|
...and a hooky friend completed a beautiful, light pastel hexagon blanket for her daughter's baby shower.
I started mine in great haste, next to the swimming pool where my boys have lessons:
...and then worked on it on our way towards the Garden Route:
...worked away the edges over coffee with a friend:
|(Hate this part...and I always leave it to the last).|
And then finished over another:
|A fello Pure-fan recognised the carefully disguised menu!|
I edged the blanket with one row of SC, and then a couple of rows in HDC. In retrospect I think linen stitch would have been neater.
As for yarns, I used
Vinnis Nikkim Natural (the white colour)
Vinnis Bambi Peach (not shown below - a cotton/bamboo blend with lovely texture)
I Love Yarn Imagine in Guava, Antique Rose and Burned Butter

My V-stitch blankie was delivered on Friday!
The hexagon blanket - it was sent overseas by courier last week...but over the weekend we learnt that a baby girl was stillborn.
While I'm happy about Lerato's little baby girl that's still on her way, I'm mourning with a hooky/book friend who lost her grandchild.
Into every blanket, we crochet our joy, hope, love.
Sometimes that must comfort as well.
