Beautiful Bloggers Blanket 2012

Hello sweeties,

Yesterday, I decided to join the Beautiful Bloggers Blanket 2012 held by the wonderful Jill (Stocki).  Even though I am a little late, Jill told me that she will wait for my squares 🙂 Youpiiii! I am sooo thrilled to take part of this fabulous project!

 What am I talking about? It is a big blanket made from squares from around the world… squares that you have to crochet and send to Jill 🙂 For each one you send you get an entry into the draw to win the whole blanket! 

Here are the rules: The squares must be:

  • 100% cotton double knit only.
  • Any colour
  • Any pattern / stitch
  • Any size between 5cm x 5cm to 20cm – 20cm
  • You can send just 1 or as many as you like.  For each one you send you get an entry into the draw to win the whole blanket – so 1 square = 1 entry, 3 squares = 3 entries and so on.

The squares must get to Jill by 31th January but she will wait for yours a little longer if you still want to join in! Imagine a big blanket made from a big variety of squares coming from around the world…Isn’t it wonderful?

So, yesterday night I made 4 squares:

And I am sending them to Jill 🙂

They will be on their way from Beirut to Oxford by tomorrow morning!

So ? don’t you want to join in? come on! It is such a fun and lovely idea and you may win a beautiful blanket crocheted by so many wonderful ladies from aroud the globe !

Big big kisses,

Good morning!

My vintage blanket is done 🙂 Finally, the first blanket which is all mine, yes mine 🙂 This time, I will not for any any reason give away this blanket… (selfish on Christmas time this is very very bad 🙂 )

I love this blanket…I love MY blanket… wanna see it ?? yalla…

It is so “wintery” with all this white… like a field of flowers in a snowy morning … mmmmmh

The yarn used is Nako vizon a 100% acrylic yarn.

The hook: 4.5mm

Don’t ask me about the number of colors, I don’t exactly remember…It was leftovers I had in my stash with maybe 8 or 9 100g ball of off-white yarn…

150 squares joined as-I-go 🙂 You can find the graphic pattern of the square here.

And after I joined all the squares together I’ve made this border which I adore. I’m gonna post the graphic pattern of this edging next time maybe, so if you’re interested, stay tuned 😉

Dim: 110×165 cm

Last night was my first evening snuggled under my blanket while crocheting my rainbow ripple in front of the fire lit in the fireplace… a PERFECT evening 🙂

and you? what is for you a perfect evening?


5 more days before Christmas… The count down has began 🙂

I wish you a PERFECT monday, a PERFECT week and a perfect Holidays season 🙂
