Tis the season to...start knitting!

I have been knitting up a storm lately. I kind of lost my knitting mojo last year, both due to unfortunate beanie incidents... And I havw been trying to find a crochet class but they are always either full or clashing with other dates. I sooo want to crochet a ripple blanket. I even tried a knitted one but couldn't get into the pattern ( found on purl soho) and it was not going to be a fast knit ( and for a blanket/ throw it needs to be fast because of the size!)
I looked for some easy baby blanket patterns, and decided on an easy version of a rib blanket ( also purl soho I think). My H"s cousin is having a baby in a few months, so I thought I would knit a pram rug/ knee rug. In practical washable acrylic in non baby colours. And I finished it and gave it to the parents- to- be last weekend!


  1. Great job! Love the subtle rib great for a pram throw - colours are very practical for kids.
    I did a crochet class at the Stitchery in Essendon - it is now closed - not that I remember much! Anyway there is a wool shop in the Centreway East Keilor which does classes not sure of days/$. Does one of the houses offer? or local library? I'm pretty sure the ladies on Wednesday would probably teach you.

    1. Yes I had been planning on going to the stitchery...actually a lady I was chatting with at the market on Sunday suggested I come along to craft group at Sussex St NH on Mondays and someone can teach me!
