And…. another play mat!

The play mat that should match the liquorice allsorts baby blanket is finished and I’m quite happy with the result. I wasn’t sure about the colors, but in combination with the black it turned out really good, I think. 


Here together with the baby blanket.


For a TUTORIAL look here.

For other examples of this play mat look here and here.

In the meantime I worked on some grannies for what should become a really large blanket (yes, I give it a try again, as you may have read before). I ordered a book with lots and lots of different grannies ('200 Crochet Blocks' by Jan Eaton), hoping not to get bored after doing five grannies. I already have four (see previous post) and this is what I made today:

  1. Oh Liz that is so pretty. Great set. I can't crochet or knit, but, like you, If I try to do a quilt...sigh....after a completed block pattern I'm done. Just no patience, but love the end product someone else does 8o)

  2. This is very sweet. I just made a playmat which folds into a bag - I may play around with the idea of a rectangular one now (mine is hexagonal). Thanks for posting - I love the colours you chose.
