I just love it its just so eye capturing and makes me really wish I had a girl.

I also for the first time attempted the Starburst 12 point star pattern as I thought it would also go well with the same colours however I did not use cream I just went with the rest of the colours. And it turned out amazing its around 115-119 cm point to point.

I used another free pattern Rainbow Ripple Blanket.

At one stage I stopped counting and accidentally added a few stitches and had to pull it apart which was frustrating.

But eventually I finished and  it again is just so Beautiful. I have decided to make a few smaller ones for this years donation to the Special Care nursery for Leo’s 3rd Birthday Donation. This one is available for sale in my etsy store. CROCHETOVERARAINBOW

Persian Tile Throw

After a friend completed Janine Crow’s Persian Tile Blanket I decided it was maybe time for me to give it a go so after getting the pattern I headed to The Unwind Cafe to choose some Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8 Ply Yarn I did not want to go with the traditional colours like Janine has on her website. I wanted completely different to what everyone else has done. So I chose these beautiful colours.

And while the crocheting of the hexagons did not take long to do they did sit there for quite a while as I was thinking about joining them and delaying doing it. img_2030

I did change the boarder as I thought it needed a bit more than what it had and I have to say I do like it.img_2082img_2083
