At the moment I am working on a few things at the same time. I think most crocheters are like that, especially when you have been crocheting for a few years. My main project is still the Baby Blanket I’m making for a custom order. Im on Row 34 now. I think it will be 47 rows around but I will measure it to be sure its a suitable size and keep going until then. I am aiming for 36″ x 36″
Size charts such as this one form Cosy Rosie UK are very handy when trying to estimate how big or small to make a blanket. The pattern you use will also tell you what size the blanket will end up but if you are like me and use different yarn than recommended or go a little rogue on a pattern, having a size guide like this really helps.
I’ve also been doing a little research and development for future products to sell at Christmas markets and my online store. I was awake at 4am this morning so started making some Ribbon Tree decorations from this lovely Poppy and Bliss pattern. I made these 2 years ago and they were my most popular sellers. I made them out of DK acrylic that time and was a bit worried about how floppy they might become over time. So this time I’m trying out cotton. I just want the things I make to be long lasting and of good quality. I know people loved the acrylic ones but I also want to be happy with what I make too. So I’m going to finish this one off, hang it up and see how it holds its shape. If it manages to do it, I will go all out making them again for this years Christmas markets.
