Crochet Keeps Me Sane - Pt 7


                                                 

2020 may have been a bit of an odd year for most of us.  One where we stayed home, then we didn't and then we did again.
During this odd year I have been able to crochet to my hearts content and have made several blankets to give as gifts.

The red one was for my friend J's birthday and one, she tells me is used every night at the moment when the nights are chilly.

The blue and green one was a housewarming present for friends at work who have just bought their first home.  It has pride of place on their sofa.  Or so they tell me.

The pink star was a pram blanket for my friend's first granddaughter who was born in April and who  she has only just been able to see.

And the cream one was one my friend asked me to make for her to give to the same granddaughter.

All are being used every day and it makes me happy to know that they are being loved as much as I loved making them.

Maybe I should open my own Etsy shop!!

  1. They are beautiful and I am sure that they are treasured by the people who received them, there's nothing quite like a homemade gift. Do you think you could cope with demand if you sold them online?!

    1. I think I would have to just sell what I had already made and not take orders. Working full time doesn't allow for too much crochet. Maybe part time should be my first option!! :0)

  2. Beautiful & what wonderful gifts. I like the pompoms on the red one, my kitty girls would go mad for such interesting things! I cannot pick a favourite.

    1. Thank you. It's lovely to give them as gifts and know that people still appreciate hand made/crafted items. :0)

  3. You should definitely open an Etsy shop. I'd buy all of these - and I would fight over that last one if it were in a real shop. You are making good use of your time - well done!

    1. Thank you. The shop is something I'm thinking of for next year. I would need to have a lot of stock to start with. I'm going to have to stop making things and giving them away as gifts and stockpile them to sell!!
      Watch this space!!
