Dragon Blanket

 Several months ago I discovered a great pattern thanks to Pinterest, from MJ's off the Hook the Dragon Blanket! It looked amazing and a friend of mine asked me to make one - child size. It did take me a little while because I was juggling many things at the same time, but the result was well worth it, despite a few small mistakes (things I'd do differently another time).
I used  yarn from Schachenmayr, the Big Bravo Color (Feuer). I just think it is gorgeous, those warm red colours with glimpses of yellow and purple.

I love it!

I will probably be making some mermaid blankets some time soon as well. I love how quickly they build up and how they look. My children are very keen on getting their own blankets ;)

My father is rather fond of All-sorts, those british sweets made mostly with liquorice. For his birthday I gave him some of a special sort: I crocheted them!

Through Pinterest I found this lovely dutch website and used the instructions on there. I do not speak dutch, but once a few words of vocabulary are sorted, the rest comes fairly easily. 
I went to get a pretty glass container to store and present them nicely:
I just love the result!
