One A Day Tuesday Tallies (17 January 2012)



Its Finished!!!!  

My first Ta Da of the year!

The first of many!

This year is the year of COMPLETION

and I will complete lots.

Here it is:


My finished cot ripple blanket.  Made using Rico Baby DK wool in cream, purple, turquoise, red, petrol, grass green and denim blue.  


I was able to crochet 5 stripes from one ball; 27 stripes in total plus boarder which is equivalent to 10 stripes.  


Just over 7 balls in total at £2.25 a ball.


Just loving this snugly blanket and I can't wait for Baby Hyde to arrive to wrap it up and hug it tight.

Now my one a day blanket is finished, its time to move on to a new one!  To accompany the cot blanket baby Hyde needs pram blankets.  This is my progress so far:


I am using Rico Baby DK again; this time in cream, red, petrol and green.  There are 3 rows of dc in the red, petrol and green followed by 4 rows of tr in cream.  


I am then going to do 5 rows of dc (red, petrol, green, petrol, red) before 4 rows of tr in cream.  Final row will be 3 rows of dc in red, petrol and green.

I plan on getting this blanket finished this month as I have some time off work and plan to concentrate on this as I have lots of other crafty makes I am eager to do this year.

Pop on over to Carole to see lots of other one a day tallies.

Congrats on your first TA DA of the year. It turned out really nice. Many of the afghans I have seen lately are using such nice colors, including yours.

Congrats on your first tah dah of 2012. Your blanket looks wonderful and so lovely and warm. Also a bargain when you work out the cost of the wool!!
Lovely idea to make a pram blanket in the same colours.
