Little grey

Happy Tuesday ladies and thank you for your lovely responses to my previous post!
Well all the decs are now gone :( . I'm always sad to see my tree go but actually it is sort of nice to get back to normal. The boy is totally blissed out with his presents, especially THE Lego camper van. It was the only thing he has evr asked for, as he usually says that he will be happy with anything Santa brings (yes he still believes in Santa!!). This Lego set is for a 16 plus years so we thought it may take him a few days to finish.....
Lego camper van - the beginning.....
Five hours of solid Lego-ing later.....

So all done in just five hours. Now he just spends a lot of time looking at it!
But enough of the Lego! Let's get to the really interesting part, which is about what I have been making!!
We got a new baby boy in the family a few months ago and I decided to make a blanket (no surprises there). What I did though was to try out a different colourway. This blanket is grey and a sort of off-white and I think it looks rather Scandinavian. I love it but I'm not sure the new mama likes it so much...ah well. What do you think?

Have a lovely week! xx
Oops! Forgot to say that the basic hearts pattern came from here at  Ravelry


  1. that Lego creation is the bomb. My son is currently obsessed with Nanoblocks, they're great as they're tiny and easier to find a place to house when finished. He gets similarly focused and can't stop until the project is complete. Beautiful baby blanket - and very practical colours.

  2. I think it's really cute - I like that it's not totally traditional colours!

  3. Love the blanket, grey is one of my favourite colours. It's very disappointing when you put so much effort into making something and the reaction is not as you were hoping. I made a baby blanket last year and was really pleased when I finished it, but I got a very subdued thank you from the Mum. Ho hum. xxx

  4. Love the lego but adore the blanket. Very Scandinavian and very beautiful. X

  5. Thats fab lego-ing!! And I love the pattern in that blanket, although looks like it must have been a bit complicated? Have visions of trailing yarn getting tangled up... I'm feeling slightly apprehensive about one I'm doing for a friend at the moment, I think it will be nice but not sure if she is really a crochet blankets girl... (how can you not be?!!) Oh well, I think its such a lovely thing to have a handmade gift like that, you just hope they'll be appreciated! xx

  6. Love the lego-ing, what determination. The blanket is lovely because it is NOT traditional, and yes it does look Scandinavian.

  7. A young lego genius there! Gorgeous blanket, there is going to be one stylish baby somewhere soon. xxx

  8. The blanket is lovely and I am sure mum and baby will love it too. Handmade gifts are the best! - Annie

  9. Look at your beautiful son Andrea, he looks happy. A great job is done :)
    Your blanket is gorgeous !! Lucky baby :)

    The best wishes for this year Andrea and all the happiness you can get.
    Warm greetings ...

  10. Thank you for all your lovely comments! xxx

  11. Your blanket looks stunning.Your son must be very proud what a wonderful job he has done.

  12. Gosh, I may have to get one of those lego kits for myself! The blanket is lovely, I'll bet she uses it more as he grows.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment here - I love to read what you have to say! x
