Baby , baby !
Warning: Picture heavy post.

I've been making a lot of baby stuff but blankets and afghans for babies I prefer to avoid. The reasons being :
1) Big Projects distract me very easily- ADD at the topmost level
2) The weather here is too hot most of the year - almost 8 months summer
3) Good Yarn is not available in variety and and is priced too high as well. I've ended up with couple of projects put aside midway as I ran out of yarn and haven't seen or heard of the yarn used ever since I first got it. The only yarn available easily locally is an inferior quality which just is not worth putting so much time and effort into.
But as of now , I'm working on a baby Nursery Ensemble. It includes a baby blankie,matching hat, a baby afghan, a bottle cover, Baby Moses Basket cot cover with hood , tissue box covers, and a diaper bag.
This is the basket cot cover . It was fairly simple to make , except the hood which was a little tricky to size up. But all in all, it was fun to work.
















Details:
Yarn : Yasmine yarn by the Company name : AB, in colours beige - gold, hot pink, and olive green.
Hooks: Susan bates - 5.00mm, 505 mm, 6.00 mm and 6.5 mm.
Pattern: Inspired by so many squares seen online

Yasmin, that's as lovely as any carriage can be! Do you have a pattern for it? Its awesome!

Yasmin said...

Thankyou Swapnae, Tandi and Mimi. You girls so motivate me. This didn't really need much of designing skills. Actually it was pretty easy to make. The hood was a little tricky , but after some struggle I managed it.
Mimi, so sorry I did not write down the pattern. I'm just too lazy about writing the patterns. But I can give you general idea if you are interested.
