My Creative Space: the start of a baby blanket

Sorry it's been quiet here at Mummy Adventures this week - my baby boy is poorly which means lots more cuddles and early nights for me (so I get sleep before having to get up in the middle of the night!) and less computer and blogging time.

I thought I'd share a couple of quick pictures of what I had been working on most evenings until my boy got sick...



It's the start of a baby crochet hexagon blanket. I'm using the same tutorial and colours as my table runner (except at this stage I'm not planning to use the navy blue). I'm planning to turn them all into hexagons with a pale mint green colour and join them as I go. I think I'll be making 27 hexagons in total so another 6 to go.
Unfortunately I have run out of the jade green yarn so need to get to the yarn shop before I can carry on.

The blanket is a going to be a gift for the 1st lady from our antenatal coffee group having a second baby. She is due in December and expecting a boy so I hope she will like the colours.
If people from coffee group have babies close together there is no way I'll be able to make them all blankets but I've got a bit of time for this first one :-)

I'm thinking of switching to crochet hats for the rest of the babies as they come so if anyone has any good patterns (and easy to understand!) for newborns please let me know :-)
