Omne Trium Perfectum or Good blankets come in threes

Every stitch I make is made out of love, from my heart. I guess ultimately my knitting and crochet is one of my ways of spreading love and kindness through the world. So it's with a very big smile on my face that I'm sending these to Knit for Peace, who's been collecting blankets to send to refugee camps in Kurdistan. They are all baby blankets (30 inches x 30 inches), colourful, soft and cuddly.

Cada ponto que faço é feito com amor, vem do coração. Acho que o meu tricot e o crochet acabam por ser um dos meus métodos de espalhar amor e bondade pelo mundo. Portanto, é com um grande sorriso que envio estas mantas à Knit for Peace, que tem estado a reunir mantas para os campos de refugiados no Curdistão. São todas mantas de bebé (cerca de 65 x 65 centímetros), coloridas, suaves e aconchegantes.

Pattern: No pattern, really. It's just four 12' granny squares, put together with a zig zag stich and then 4 rows around the entire blanket. Easy edge pattern from here.
Yarn: Ice Yarn Baby Batik (2 x 100 gr skeins).

Modelo: Não tem um modelo, na verdade. São só quatro granny squares de 30 centímetros, que uni com um ponto de ziguezague e depois fiz quatro carreiras à volta da manta. O acabamento é simples, ver aqui
Fio: Ice Yarn Baby Batik (2 novelos de 100 gr).

Pattern: Corner to Corner Square Granny Afghan, by bobwilson123. Available here. Super fast, by the way. Also the same pattern used for the next blanket.
Yarn: Ice Yarn Baby Batik (2 x 100 gr skeins).
Modelo: Manta Granny Quadrada Canto a Canto, da bobwilson123. Disponível aqui. Super rápido, já agora. Também o usei para a manta que vem a seguir.
Fio: Ice Yarn Baby Batik (2 novelos de 100 gr).

Another Corner to Corner, this time in worsted weight. Awesome, awesome colours!
Outro de Canto a Canto, desta vez em fio worsted. Cores maravilhosas, maravilhosas!

OMG, It's Almost Christmas Fingerless Mitts - Free Crochet Pattern/Modelo Grátis de Crochet

Every year is the same. In August, I start going on and on about how I need to be knitting/crocheting for Christmas and then December comes and I do everything in a matter of days, so I need super-quick patterns. Discipline is not my forte. Yesterday, I decided to make these fingerless mitts and I think that the end result is something worth sharing. For that reason, here's the pattern. É sempre o mesmo. Em Agosto, começo a dizer que é preciso começar a trabalhar para o Natal e depois chega a Dezembro e faço tudo no espaço de alguns dias, razão pela qual preciso de modelos rápidos. A disciplina não é o meu forte. Ontem, decidi fazer estas luvas sem dedos e acho que o resultado final até merece ser partilhado. Por isso, aqui fica o modelo.

2.5 k - A Quick Granny Stripes Crochet Lapghan

After having spent an entire week trying to finish what apparently was a never-ending dress for Litte A. in *navy blue* (the horror!), I needed some instant "craftification". And nothing says fast like a Q/15mm hook and 4 strands of yarn held together, right?

The yarns had all been in my stash for quite some time, staring at me, softly whispering "Please, make something out of me" and you know you should always listen to what your yarn has to say.... Particularly the Sale Luxury Premium one, of which I ordered 16 skeins back in February only to find out that it did not live up to my expectations. "Make a lapghan out of me", it said, and the Anarchist quickly complied, using 12 skeins of the sheep-smelling fussy mess. To the mix, I added 3 skeins of Baby Multicolor and 2 skeins of Diva, all from Ice Yarns. So my stash is 2370 meters lighter! That's almost 2.5 kilometers (2700 yards, give or take)! That's a whole lotta yarn! Not bad, for such a simp…

Sock Yarn Baby Blanket - Free Knitting Pattern

Most baby blankets' patterns give me the creeps. They're heavy, frumpy, impractical and even worse is when they have a right side and a wrong side (who has time for that when you're trying to wrap up a baby in the cold?). More, baby H., my much-anticipated godson, will be born right in the middle of summer and temperatures here get quite high. So, with all this in mind, I decided I wanted something extraordinarily light, colourful and easy. And this was born: 
It only weighs 150 gr, it's light, airy but still able to keep those cold summer evenings and nights at bay! And the pattern (if we can even call it a pattern) couldn't be any simpler: you knit, knit, knit and let the yarn speak for itself. I think the most imp…
