Candy Cane BB no. 2

Today I present another baby blanket made from Sirdar Pattercake, I used yarn cake in Candy Cane colour again. I just love it!


It really is amazing yarn and one ball is sufficient to make a great baby blanket.

This time I started with small granny square and then worked the blanket corner-to-corner. I added white edge to it for a neat finish and voila!



Posted in Ideas, Yarns

In search for inspiration…

Whenever I need a little inspiration on what to knit or crochet next I like to visit my favourite local yarn shop Purly Yarns. They are small family run shop that offers friendly atmosphere and lots of inspiration – come and see, you won’t be disappointed!

As usual, when I visited last week I got myself new balls of yarn that I can’t wait to try and already have couple of ideas on what to make.


I am sure that kids socks made of ColourLab will look great! I am planning on using Vauvan Sukka pattern by Kerttu Latvala.


I am very curious about Batik Swirl by Stylecraft. I got it in shade Meadow, bright and colorful, with the purpose of making a scarf to cheer me up during winter days to come. Quite possibly I will use free pattern that is included on reverse of the ball band.
I really enjoyed working with Creative Cotton Print when I was making my Buggy Bag and Tunisian Pot Holder. This cotton is so versatile and has lovely colours too, this time I got it in pink and orange. It will be perfect for making heat packs like these Rice Bags.
