Some crochet

First I thought I would finally take a few photos of a baby blanket that I made a while ago now, during my blogging absence.  It was my first attempt at using different crochet stiches (before that I had only made granny blankets).  Since, there has been no stopping me- crochet is so easy and versatile :-)

These are two Minion hats (minions from the film Despicable Me) that I made in the last week.  They are so easy to make.  I have to add though that it is not my pattern- a friend showed me how to make them and where to get the best wool from.  I made 3 at Christmas- one for a friend, one for Dad and a baby one.  These two will go to my next door neighbour, who is 80 in April (he likes to do jobs outside and usually wears a bobble hat, so thought he might like a new one) and my supervisor (as a thankyou??!).

Oh Louise, you are just amazing at everything! I adore the style of your baby blanket. The mix of stitches with that gorgeous edging is so, so pretty.
I squealed with joy when I spotted the Minion hats, that was my task for the kids this Winter. However, Winter never showed up did it?!
It makes me so happy to see your amazing creations, it's such a joy.
Hope they all love them, they are very lucky indeed.
