The Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2012 - Little Things Made With Love....


Have you heard of Barbina's blog


Barbina lives in Germany and she has
 sent us 4 squares for The Beautiful 
Blogger Blanket 2012. 

In fact Barbina went one step further
 and designed her own square pattern! 

Here is the beautiful little package
 that I unwrapped last week...


Labelled beautifully...


and attached to the label and ribbon, 
a special little treat for me... 

A sweet detachable stitch marker!

Thank you Barbina.


So here are the four squares... 

They are all made from the same pattern
 called, 'The Flower Square Pattern' by Barbina
 which you can find with a really clear
 tutorial on Barbina's blog here..


The squares are all made using 
Rico Essentials DK yarn...

I have never used it before, but 
it feels very silky, has a slight
 sheen to it and would have a 
good 'drape' for a cotton yarn.

The first square is a pale teal and white.


 The second is a pale lilac and white.


The 3rd square is a deep custardy yellow....


The 4th is a purple-blue with white.


All four together look so fresh and sweet... 

I can imagine a whole blanket 
made of these very easily! 

Thank you so much Barbina... 

You now have 4 chances to win the whole blanket!
