This morning we went out for a walk to get a cappuccino. I thought I'd take along the spring blanket I just finished for Olivia and try and get a nice picture of it. Recently it dawned on me that you guys might enjoy seeing a little bit of Italy in my crafty pics - after all, I like to get a glimpse of life in Hawaii and New Zealand and other places through other people's blogs. So from now on I'm going to try to include a little bit of local scenery for you.
It's a simple zig zag crochet, done with this tutorial, in cotton. I bought the yarn at a place in Rome last year, and the colour selection wasn't the greatest so I ended up with pinks and purples. Not my favourite, but I figure it's fine since it's one of many, many blankets Olivia will have!
And here's a behind the scenes picture of my little family waiting patiently. You know he's secure in his masculinity pushing a pink stroller while holding two chihuahuas!
After coffee Olivia and I practiced walking for a bit.
