My crochet hook has been non stop of late. My dear friend Tracy ordered a blanket for her Aunt and because she is coming to visit shortly, I thought I would try and get it done as quickly as possible so as I wouldn't have to "cram" it in at a later date. Here is the finished piece! I got rather taken with it. The colours and the order and the pretty border. I really love it. I hope Tracy does too.
Something else I started just last night and inspired by this one, is shown below. I love Chris' colours of beige and greys and creams but I do seem to have an inordinate amount of pastel pinks and purples and thought it would be just as well to use them up on a similar blanket. So this one may go to daughter, if I can bear to part with it. Because I am doing solid flowers with no colour changes, the flowers are crocheting up pretty quickly with only two strands to weave in. I am doing it randomly and joining as I go. It is a pleasure to work on and can't wait to get off here and make a few more to add to it. More progress pictures to come soon!

I also started a small pram blanket for my neighbour who has recently given birth to her 3rd baby boy! I am running out of navy though so a few more rows and a border and I think it will be done!
So you would think I would be all hooked out, wouldn't you? But I'm not! Just loving the hook at the moment. Thanks for popping by! I'll be back soon.
ETA: the japanese flower pattern can be found in this book by this wonderful etsy seller. Yes it was a bit of an expense I bought 2! But she is very reliable. I thoroughly recommend. http://www.etsy.com/listing/82863690/motif-book-vol-4-japanese-crochet-book
