Baby it’s cold outside!

colourful crochet blanketBrr.. it’s getting a bit chilly lately isn’t it?! It’s been blowing a gale here for a good few days, under the doors (need to make more door stops!) and the hens are getting blown everywhere! There has been lots of soup/stews cooked, the freezer is stocked, leaves are gorgeous reds and oranges and it is definately Autumn – my favourite season!

The Boy has had new bedding – flannelette, light blue with dark blue stars – and so have I, stripes, lots of stripes, loves me some stripes..!  I also ordered lots of yarn to make him a new blanket. Am using good quality acrylic, as apart from being a blanket, I know it will have to also double as a den/be dragged around the house etc, so it needs to be easily washable!

There is something so beautiful, so soothing, about a quiet night, with children snuggled up, fast asleep, while I crochet blankets, each stitch filled with love, ready to warm them further, as the nights get colder..
