Colourful cuteness

Do these projects really need any explanation anymore? :) This is the FIFTH baby blanket we've made for a colleague at work. Everyone who wanted to participate made a few knitted or crochet squares using leftover yarns from their stash. Then I offered to crochet it all together - and voilĂ ! Another blanket is ready to warm someone small and cute!

This time some of us wanted to try something new, so especially the crochet squares are made with a little bit more complicated patterns than in the earlier blankets. Most of them are from the book I bought resently: "200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws and Afgans" by Jan Eton.
I still think this blanket is my all time favourite, but this newest one doesn't come far behind. I especially like the bright colours and the wonderful different textures in it.

Hooting needles

I haven't actually been able to finish any of my knittings, but one piece of sewing is ready to be shown!

Have you ever been in a situation when you just can't seem to find that one neede you need, even though you know it is somewhere in that box? Well, I experienced that a lot of times. And sometimes it just felt too "hard" to fix a piece of clothing since looking for suitable needles was soooo time consuming. (Actually, it was just an excuse for being lazy...)

This is, therefor, the perfect solution for me. A needle book. And even pretty enough to have lying around in the living room.

Owls are just so my thing. I know it's srarting to be boring since everyone has owls at the moment, but when I thought about what I wanted to embroider, the owl always kept on popping into my mind. So I gave in, at last. It turned out quite nice, if I may say it myself.

A nice tutorial for a needlebook can be found here.
