This one, is a special one. Several weeks ago the assignment was almost stolen from me by the one it was actually for, haha! Complicated story?
It was the idea from a group mommy’s I met online. We wanted to surpriste someone in the group, who is currently pregnant, with a nice babygift. The group suggested I would crochet something. A nice baby sleepingbag, details would be discussed later. Two weeks after that, the person who it would be for, asked in our shared Whatsapp group if I perhaps had a pattern for the picture below. She wanted to make one with her mother!
Our first idea for a gift for her, she already took away months ago; a 3d Ultrasound. So now we said: ‘No! This will be our gift now!’ She had to laugh and gave the Ok. So I set to work.
I chose Drops Cotton Light for the yarn. It’s a nice, strong, light and soft yarn, perfect also for the spring/summer when the baby will be born.
Looking at the picture she showed in the Whatsapp, I tried several pieces of cabling, to see how it would work out and what size hook to use best.
After some practice, I had the general idea for the sleepingbag in my head. And after a little doodling on paper, I just started with the startingchain.
I am scared I might make mistakes, not having a complete written pattern, and that I have to take out a lot of work. Because that’s what this project is, a lot of work! Baby is due for the beginning of May, so I have some time, but it’s approaching fast. I’m going to work hard to get it finished in time!
So that’s What I’m Doing Now.
Ja… Ik ben nog steeds verliefd op mijn schaartje!
