Bohemian Baby Blanket in Crochet

Bohemian Baby Blanket

We can’t stop a train when we want a picture, or when we really want to detrain for a bit and stretch our legs, but we can stop a train of thought. Let’s stretch our train-filled legs and talk crocheting for a few posts. Smile

Join the Celebration!

What fun it is to join the celebrations of new families being created! Whether it is a wedding marking the beginning of a family of two or a baby multiplying the love all around, crocheting for celebrations delights a crafter’s soul.

And with appreciation for the homemade coming back in vogue, I hope you are inspired to make gifts for your circles or branches of the family tree.

Let’s begin with the circles …

Bohemian Baby Blanket

First, a Bohemian Baby Blanket:

Bohemian Baby Blanket 1

The pattern is called Circle Lapghan by Kim Kotary, a free pattern on Ravelry.  (Scroll down to the notes section on the pattern page and you’ll find a link to the free Red Heart pattern.)

The project that got my attention for the power of this pattern was made by Bethany, known as bef1212 on Ravelry. She really knows how to make color sing!

Bohemian Baby Blanket 2

The colors for my Bohemian Baby Blanket were ultimately chosen by my in-sync-with-the-color-times daughter, Winter, who also knows a colors’ tunes by heart. Red heart

Bohemian Baby Blanket 3

I stopped a few round short of completion because a) the baby had been born! and b) it just looked finished. Some blankets are like that!

  1. You have really inspired me to create my blog around helping others, It’s Ironic that we have the same name except my name is Susanne, Thank you for all the great things that you do!!! I hope I can succeed as well as you, maybe if you have some pointers for me I would greatly appreciate it, I just started again on WordPress because I felt like that was agood move for me. looking forward to hearing from you when you ahve the time, Congrats on the New precious baby!!! my email is thank you


    • Thank you so much for writing, Susanne! I love that you are inspired to help others through your blogging. It’s truly a gift to be able to share good news and offer suggestions on ways to help others.

      Blogging can certainly be a time consuming task, so my first piece of advice is: Do what you can, but don’t be bogged by down everything you can’t. 🙂

      You will make changes – and changes and changes! – throughout your blogging journey, so go easy on yourself. Play with color, with styles, fonts, etc, but don’t let them take over your real world.

      Glancing at your website, the first thing I would do is add to your about page. When I clicked on it to learn more about you, it was a generic page saying this could be an about page. We want to know YOU! 🙂 Even if it’s just a quick picture and a short blurb, it will go a long way into making you appear online the real person you are behind the screen.

      I love the Betsy Ross vest, by the way!

      Happy serving at home … and beyond!
