crochet pinning : cute blankets

crochet pinning : cute blankets | Emma Lamb's favourites from the Makers on Pinterest 'Crochet' board

Hello my blog buddies and happy, happy Friday! I hope you have all had a fantastic week and are enjoying the warm weather, especially all of you here in the UK!? It looks set to be a fab weekend with the start of the summer temperatures and you know what that means rights!? Picnic weather! Woo-hoo! I am so, so happy about that I can't tell you! So of course my thoughts are turning to picnic blankets of the crocheted kind and I find myself wondering if I have the time to fit in such a project amongst all the others I have going on right now? Even if I don't it's not stopping me from gathering lots of cute inspiration over on my Pinterest pages...


A granny 'sampler' blanket has been at the top of my 'must crochet one day' list for as long as I can remember and I think it's high time I got on with it. It would the perfect picnic project too, with just a ball of yarn and a hook I can crochet any kind of square I fancy. Making an odd square here and there would mean I could spend the whole summer pootling away on it and by the time the autumn comes around I'd finally be able to cross that one off my list. Perfect!

I really need to practice my tapestry crochet skills too and Claire Montgomerie's fab polygon triangles would be the ideal project for it. Find this pattern is in the current issue (53) of Inside Crochet. I love the colours she's used int this version, aren't they yummy!? I'm still loving those rich sapphire blues!

So tell me, what's at the top of your 'must crochet one day' list? Because I know you all have one ;)

  2. Such beautiful colours Emma :) I'm sure you'll make a wonderful blanket, when you make it you must show us! Unfortunately I still can't crochet (I have tried to but can't get my head around it. I'm a bit dyslexic so I blame that!) but I have ambitions to one day purchase one (a pastel one) I shall save up! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, safxxx

    1. Thanks Saf! Sometimes it just takes time to learn crochet and lots of practice, or maybe just the right person who can show you and make it click for you. Everyone learns differently, it's just a matter of finding what works for you. I'm sure if you keep trying you will do it one day :) I hope you have a fab weekend too my friend! xx

  3. Fabulous selection :) I really like the Warm Pixie one - such a different look having the grey as the main component of the blanket with little bursts of colour :) thanks for sharing these. Kx

    1. I love that one too Kylie, the grey updates the look so well and with the pops of colour it would suit anyone and look great anywhere. Exactly what you want from a crochet blanket that you put hours and hours of your time into - something classic and timeless! x

    1. Haha, I know where you're coming from Vivienne! I actually have three blanket wips on the go right now that I dip in and out of when I have the time and my though this weekend was that I should really try to finish one of those before starting a new one. But the lure of the instant gratification of starting something new is too much sometimes! So far I am resisting but I soooooooo want a sampler! ;) xx

    1. I have one of those on the go right now Andrea and I'm loving it! It is supposed to be a new one for my wee man but the bigger it gets the more I am loving it for myself and thinking I should make into into a huge king size granny for my bed! xx
