Welcome to the world!

8 Aug

Today I became an aunty for the second time. Congratulations to Andy’s brother Nick and his fiancée Penny!

Today baby James John Liam Wickham came into the world. To help welcome him I crocheted a cute little baby blue blanket. Lets hope he likes!

I started off by making several small granny squares, varying the colour pattern slightly on each one.

I then had the fun of picking the order to sew them together in (my favourite bit!) and away I went.

I decided to simply slip stitch the squares together using a crochet hook. This gives a very obvious ridged seam which I really like. I know there are neater less prominent ways of fixing them together, but I quite like the way it makes a feature of the back of the blanket.

I’m pleased with the finished blanket, I just hope that baby James is too x

    The mix of blues looks lovely, warm and cosy for little James
