Inspired by Bagpuss..

Inspired by bagpuss's pink and white stripes, my latest Motorway blanket is a blend of
 bright pink, a sparkly pink and white yarn and lots of plain white for the background.
The light was going when I took this photo - but I hope that you get the general idea..!

The target audience is a young girl!
Hopefully it will soon be brightening up the life of a young person somewhere..
I'm still crocheting away in the passenger seat, but I've abandoned these blankets while I work on a Christmas gift or two.  Firstly I want to create something for my friend who taught me how to crochet back in February.  She loves handmade gifts so would appreciate the fact that I'd made something for her.  Then, if I've got time, I'd also like to make something for my Mother in Law. 
Unfortunately December seems to have caught me by surprise!
We've been ridiculously busy with work AND socialising loads.
On top of all that we seem to be commuting seperately quite a lot too,
which means a lot less crafting time.
I hope that you all have a good week.


  1. The bagpuss blanket is a delight, lucky little girl!

  2. Any of my little granddaughters would be "tickled pink" with that lovely afghan (that's what we call them in Minnesota)!
    I have no idea where that term came from.

  3. I can definitely see the inspiration behind that blanket. I'm sure the little girl in question will love it. I know what you mean about December creeping up, where did November disappear to?

  4. All that done whilst travelling - well done, never waste a moment - that's my motto.

  5. I love the Bagpuss colours in your blanket. I'm sure whoever receives it will treasure it:)
