Hello all! My arms are aching. I'm tackling seat pads using fabric strips and a 20mm hook. Hard work and hasn't got that lovely rhythmic flow of ripples or grannies. Also plodding on with my circles in the snow (although have gone slightly off piste with the joining method)
Wool shop called yesterday to say my 4ply is in - I'm making this dress. I have 6 weeks left of maternity leave and determined it complete it before life gets more complicated.
Afternoon all Been a while since I've been on here but I've been busy crocheting away.
I've got 4 baby blankets to make for babies in the family who are due in the summer so I thought I'd make them in cotton rather than acrylic or wool. The only 100% cotton I've used is Rico creative cotton but that was for toys so I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a cotton yarn that would be ok for blankets? Otherwise I was thinking I might just use the Rico Creative Cotton but have no idea if that would work out ok?
Morning Pistey There's different types but an easy one is to do TRs in the same stitch, skip next stitch, slip stitch in the next stitch, skip a stitch, 5 trebles in next stitch then just carry on repeating. Hope that makes sense I'm not feeling that awake this morning!
Woolfey I asked on deramores facebook page and they gave me a couple of recommendations for cotton yarn for baby blankets. Can't remember what they were and can't view them on my phone, but it might be worth asking them. Their customer service email would help if you don't have facebook.
Soupy & Jolly, thanks for those suggestions. I used the normal bamboo a long time ago when I tried to learn to use those two pointy stick things but I hadn't thought of it for a baby blanket. Excellent idea re Deramores as well (should have thought of it myself!) Their customer service is excellent. (and no I don't work for them )
Baby bamboo is gorgeous to use and looks lovely when finished. Unless you accidentally tumble dry it which I've done twice. It sort of felts, which is weird as not wool but I guess the fibres behave similarly?
Does anyone have any ideas on a bag I could make for dd1's communion? White(of course) but no idea what kind of yarn to use as I don't want it to look "woolly" but would like it to be something special. All suggestions welcome. Tia
