I am going to show you a project that has been going since christmas because I am always so distracted making things for my Etsy shop.  This was christmas present wool that was given to me and I decided to make a blanket for myself!  I am always making blankets for the children or other people and I would love to have one to call my own!

As you can see it is going to be made up of four different blocks and I will probably join them together with a white wool.  These squares have had the ends threaded in and have been blocked to make them nice and flat. 

These are the others that I still have to block.  There is something very satisfying with making neat piles of blocks.  I love it!  I still have lots more blocks to make.

I am using Sirdar supersoft aran yarn and I am using this pattern that I found on Ravelry.  We have a camping trip coming up in three weeks time and I am aiming to have this blanket finished so it can warm me up in the cold evenings!

You may have caught a glimpse of a teacosy in the pictures above.

This was inspired by the Alice from Crochet with Raymond and I used this lovely pattern from her blog.  It is a simple and fun pattern to follow and I love this tea cosy.

Somehow tea always tastes much better when it has come from a teapot with a tea cosy on it!  Another tea cosy is definitely on the cards I think.  You can never have too many!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.  Anything nice planned?


  1. I have been working on a blanket for what seems like forever and I never seem to get closer to finishing it. I am sure you will get yours done in time for your trip though!

  2. Threading and blocking... sigh, but so worth it - it's going to be gorgeous and snuggly x

  3. Ooh I'm loving the tea cosy! I've just finished some wrist warmers (Ta-Dah coming soon) in the same way :)

  4. The blanket will be lovely - beautiful colours. And you can't go wrong with a teacosy. I've done one of Alice's too, and like you say, the tea tastes so much better!

  5. Love lovely colours for your blanket. The way the weather is behaving I think it will be a much needed item on your camping trip. Let's hope the weather cheers up for you! I love the tea cosy, it looks really different in black and white and I now have one on my 'to do next' list, thank you for the link. X
