The first of our friends to travel the path to parenthood happily announced the birth of their son a couple of weeks ago. Now these friends live in Australia, so we wanted to send out a few gifts to greet the new baby, and I actually managed to make a crochet blanket! Said blanket was finally posted last week so is hopefully not too far away from its recipient.
The yarn was all cygnet chunky, which I hope will wash well and be nice and warm for the Australian 'winter' (I've been assured that without central heating it can actually get a bit chilly!)
I used Bunny Mummy's 'Sunburst Square' pattern, which I would highly recommend, it can be found here. It didn't take me too long to make and I loved selecting the colours - they didn't find out the sex and I chose gender neutral colours, which to be honest I think I would have done anyway.
So with husband's brother and wife expecting another baby I've decided I shall venture back to baby crochet. Just don't mention that cross stitch picture I still haven't finished for the baby's two year old sister!!!
