Peek-a-Boo Crochet Baby Blanket - Complete!

Sorry for the silence lately - time is just whizzing by!  Rob and I have been on our stag and hen weekends - much fun... then recovery... was had!

It feels like the wedding in May is careering towards us - eeek!  I'm experiencing a sense of being very busy with wedding planning, although I'm not sure what I'm actually doing that's taking up so much time.  Thinking about it, it's more the head-space it's taking.  The awareness that this big event is looming and we have to get everything in order for it.  It's not like I'm spending every minute doing wedding related things - far from it.  I guess it's just always on my mind, which makes me feel busy with it!

Anyway - back to the point of this post... my completed Peek-a-Boo blanket!  I showed it to you here without a border.  My friend has now had her baby, and it was a little girl, so I have been able to crochet the border of the blanket.  I have gone with pretty pinks!

I love it!  I wanted to use pink for the border, as I think it looks so good with the duck egg / aqua colour, so I was pleased she had a little girl!  (I know, I could have used pink for a boy too - let's not go into the whole gender colour debate - I just probably wouldn't have done.)

I love it so much!!  As I said when talking about the blanket previously, I've wanted to make this blanket since it first came out - years ago!

The aqua colour is such a difficult colour to photograph - I have no idea why it's so troublesome.  You can see in the other posts I've linked to in this post, that it seems to look different in nearly every photo!  I am pleased that the colours in this final post have actually come up the closest to reality!

  1. Perfect for a spring baby! It is very lovely with the pink against the aqua! I have to say I suffer with photographing most colours. Always something that is a bit off. xxx
