Cream baby blanket from Granny Maud's Girl

I am a granny! This is actually old news because little Lachlan, who was due in mid-July, was born a few weeks early in late June, but I have been a bit too distracted to post anything here. I think you can understand why.

The big project I was working on before his arrival was a baby blanket. I had more than a dozen balls of Rowan baby silk merino DK, which I bought on sale and stashed a while ago. The pattern I chose for them, ‘Dolce’, is a fun knit that is worked in the round from the ...

Harry Potter returns...Now I need 2 more! from Fabric and Memories

Well, I thought I'd be moving away from Harry Potter, but... you know kids!  My oldest grand daughter, age 19, saw my current Harry Potter quilt hanging on my design wall and flipped out! She squealed and jumped up and down saying it was the coolest thing she's ever seen and asked if she could...

Licorice allsorts blanket from Granny Maud's Girl

I have almost knitted up all the 4 kilograms of Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 10 ply yarn I bought in 2014 when I seriously miscalculated how much I would need for the wedding blanket. Hurrah!

In late 2017, I started crocheting a Catherine wheel blanket that would use up the bulk of the remaining yarn. A little tired of the sight of the same two shades of grey and one of blue that I had been knitting with for so long, I added two 200-gram balls of purple (out of character for me, I know) and one of cream (I ...

Woodland Blanket from Creating Chaos

My journey through the woodland has finished and I'm now wondering if I should have taken longer so I could enjoy it more.

Having missed two weeks while I was on holiday, I worked hard to catch up, setting myself a goal each day and once again working to goals worked for me and I was ready for the final instalment, the edging.   This I completed and the blanket finished.


It really was difficult finding the right way to photograph it and if the weather had been better I think it would have been easier to take it outside ...

Woodland Blanket update from Creating Chaos

I'm having to work hard on my Woodland Blanket to make up for lost time while we were away!  I try to get four stripes done each day and if I keep it up I should catch up by the end of the month.

This is a photo I took a few days ago so it has grown even more since then and I've got to the start of the blue sky rows.

It's looking fab!

2 yards, 1 charm pack and 5 projects later from Amalie's Armfuls

I follow a lot of quilters on Instagram these days.  I thoroughly enjoy the amazing things that they create.  One of the many things that I enjoy are the days in Jan where they post their #quiltmystash posts.  A couple years ago, I determined I couldn't make anything new for myself if I didn't finish previously purchased quilt projects first.  As a result, I cut my fabric purchases to pretty much 3 maybe 4 each year the past 3 years.  The problem is that sometimes you buy fabric that is not necessarily intended for a specific quilt.  This ...

Little Box Slippers from Creating Chaos

September's project for Little Box of Crochet was a pair of cosy slippers made in Yarns and Colors Charming which is a cotton and acrylic blend.

Now I haven't got a very good track record when it comes to tension which is why, apart from shawls, I tend not to make garments for myself or anyone else.  But as I always look upon my monthly Box as my monthly challenge, I set to to make this snuggly pair of slippers, ignoring the voice beside me on the sofa saying "what are you going to do with those!"

The ...

Temperature Blanket - September update from Creating Chaos

This is a bit later for September but I ran out of the yarn I needed and it took a while to get to a new supply.  Thankfully I have now caught up, finished September and go up to date with October.

WIPs? What WIPs? from Creating Chaos

Following on from my last post, I am pleased to say that I stuck to my plans to do a bit of each of my Works in Progress each day resulting in three finished crochet projects!

I'm really pleased with the Maid of Honour Shawl because of the way the colours have blended together.   I did have to fiddle a bit at the end as I wanted to make sure I got to the solid colour for the edge and I didn't want to chance not having enough yarn.

So pleased that I worked out how much to ...

Weighted Blanket for Teen or Adult from Sylvia Stitches

DIY - How to Make Your Own Weighted Throw-Size Blanket for Teen or Adult -

The first project I did at our retreat this summer was a calming weighted blanket for my nephew.  He's a teenager with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  I recently saw a post online about weighted blankets and how they may have calming effects for  people with sensory issues, sleep disorders, ASD and other issues.   It is thought that a weighted blanket may help, and they are expensive to buy already-made, so I was happy to try and make one for him.

The weighted blanket is supposed to ...
