I love the braided edging - apparently it took forever to do but its so effective.
While away I didn't do much crochet or knitting but I do have a finished baby blanket to show you.
I bought the pattern from JustCrochet and decided to use the specified yarn which was King Cole Superball 200. The yarn is self-striping and it took just over 200g for the blanket.
It seemed sensible to buy a few more balls while I was at it because the seller offered flat rate shipping so I am now working on another blanket in shades of blue with white, using another one of JustCrochet patterns.
Earlier this week I spend three days in Sydney attending a computer conference which was amazing !! So much interesting information from excellent speakers. I was lucky enough to win a flip video camera in one of the lucky door prize draws and here's my first attempt. Madison is totally bored with the whole process and perhaps a little camera shy !!! Not sure how this will show up when I hit 'publish' as it looks a bit strange here. The original file was 26MB and I got it down to 5MB by resizing in Windows Live Film Maker. Might have to play around with some other software if this looks yukky.
