So sweet, maybe mad!

I had my first gift from my UK Swap pal! She saw that I would love to be able to crochet, but that I could only make granny squares. She noticed that the Babette blanket is listed in my Ravelry queue and she sent me the pdf!!!!

She thinks that I can make it!!!! She said if I can make a granny square, I have all the skills I need to make the BB. Now, is she right or deluded?? (Sorry Swappal!) I am now filled with a new love of crochet as I am going with her confidence in me and I shall be studying this pattern and making it click in my brain. I so love the blanket, and if she thinks I can make it, she might be right.

Wish me luck. It may be finished in time for Christmas. Who knows which year! But what a lovely thought!

Thank you Secret Swap Pal!

How exciting! I think your pal wins "first present" prize! You can definitely do babette if you can do granny squares

Yes you can do it!! It's in my que too :) I read on someone's blog that they started with the biggest section and sewed them together as she finished each major section. It got easier as she psychologically thought she was doing less with the smaller sections :)

I think that you could do that too. Just think of it as a very long term project!

Wow that was quick! I love that pattern too but I don't even know how to do granny squares! Areyou buying yarn for it or do you have enough in your stash?

Hello :)

Of course you can do it! It is easy peasy. That's why I sent it to you :p

And if you are stuck, then email me. I'm more than happy to help you with it.

Your SP12 :)
