Spring and the growing of many blankets

Although spring is meant to be here already I think someone forgot to tell Mother Nature. We still have very cold temperatures, daffodils are still in bloom and snow still lies on the sides of the road in some places where the sun has not reached. So I don’t mind at all that I still have No 1 son’s blanket to finish …. I’m thinking about eight more rows then border. It is looking glorious, bright, cheerful and is lovely and snuggly to crochet underneath.


Even though the weather is missing Spring seems to be bringing new life to the fore – one baby for my sister-in-law due September, two friends due in July and August and September. Phew! It’s all very exciting! New beginnings = more blankets and I may even try my hands at bootees too. I’ve started a white blanket which I am working on alongside the ripple. The pattern is called ‘vintage charm’ and is from ‘The Making Spot’. I’ll give you a work in progress photo when I’ve done more than two rows.

I love the beginnings of spring … Possibly my favourite season with warmer days, new growth, the promise of abundance to come and renewed energy start new projects. So many creative ideas buzzing round my little head I now have to sketch and write them down.


I love this little spot of moss in my parents garden – so green and glorious with silver thrown in for good measure. Can’t you just imagine a fairy sitting in this spot swinging her legs on this little comfy spot.  Sorry, I think I went off on a little ramble all by myself then!

Here’s a little shot of happy in the form of the softest fluffy sheep, ripple blanket and my two chocolate bunnies – there was meant to be a baby one too but Little Miss H discovered it before I could take the photograph of mummy, daddy and baby bunny!

What’s your favourite season I wonder?

Until the next time, hope the promise of spring is making your day too.
