I have quite a bit of catching up to do, as a week in the Lake District has meant my knitting and crochet productivity has increased somewhat.
However I will start at the start, with my newly finished Hemlock Ring blanket
I finished knitting this on the 15th February, but it wasn't blocked until the 25th.
I found 10 skeins of Rowan RYC Cashsoft Aran in this gorgeous eau de nil (ish) colour in the sale at House of Fraser over Christmas. I knew instantly that it needed to come home with me and become a Hemlock Ring blanket.
The blanket is based on an old doily pattern and someone has charted out the feather and fan section here.
I love the simplicity of the design and the softness of the yarn. On the advice of HilltopKatie I crocheted the edging - so much simpler than the knitted version.
Now I just have to work out which baby this is a gift for (or if I keep it for my bump!)
