This wonderful book (I love you, Blue Kangaroo!) and a mini crochet ripple blanket have finished off my niece's Christmas gift nicely, don't you think? A lovely reader (thanks so much Liv) mentioned that it might be a great addition to go along with Kira the Kangaroo, and it couldn't have been more perfect. After a read of the book on youtube, I ordered it online and started work on the tiny ripple blanket while I was waiting for it to arrive. The internet is such a wonderful resource, isn't it?
The ripple was made using leftover yarn from the kangaroo and actually, it took no time at all to whip up.
Oh, and a few readers have asked how tall Kira the kangaroo ended up. Apologies for not answering this sooner, but I just took her measurements a moment ago and she is 40 cm high, from her toes to the top point of the ears.
With this gift all ready to roll, I was itching to finish Bella's blanket and I can happily say that I'm all done with it now - what a feeling that is! So, on my needles at the moment I have a short sleeved cardigan for a little 18 month old friend of mine and then I'll probably work on a few more Christmas gifts.
What about you? Anything wonderful on your needles or hook at the moment?
