My little bit of this big World

Saturday, 23 June 2018


These colours are perfect for a little boy
 It's growing, and a good width for a cot
 I only changed two colours from my original blanket, 
I wanted it boyish rather than the soft pastels, I change the pink and pale brown for a navy and grey. It's amazing how such a small switch makes such a big difference.
I have this blanket and my socks with me, we are away in our camper van for 5 nights, which will be the longest time we have stayed in it. The forecast is kind to us and we don't expect much rain. We have again not traveled far, this time we headed east and are staying just above Hastings in a lovely camp site. We have our bikes again, so we can explore the country side, I am sure loads of photo's will follow next week. So we are relaxing, reading and enjoying time together.


  1. Have a great time. I'll be looking forward to your snapshots, I've never been near Hastings.
    Pretty colour change to the blanket.

  2. Your blanket is looking fabulous and I like the colour swaps. Have a wonderful time away in your camper van.

  3. Those color swaps really make it much better for a boy. Have a fun adventure!

  4. Your blanket is lovely. Camping and crafting sounds like heaven! Enjoy your trip!

  5. Lovely blanket-the navy really makes it zing. We have just come back from 4 days away and are now spending time sorting how we want to pack things for the future. I did a little knitting when I was away. Happy moho time.

  6. You certainly picked the right time to go away with the weather as it is, I'm sure you're having a lovely time and I look forward to hearing all about it when you get back. The blanket is lovely, it's surprising what a difference it can make when you just swap two colours.

  7. Have a lovely time away, I hope the weather stays good for you and you can get lots of crochet and knitting time in.

  8. Your blankets are wonderful and what a difference just with a few changes in colours....they look perfect!
