About

Unique design handmade baby blankets, knit and crochet gifts.

Welcome to Nitcraft.
Unique crochet baby blankets with a sprinkling of imagination added! to make them extra special for the little ones. All of which are authentic handmade original design blankets, directly from myself, the designer and maker.

It all began when I was 8 years old, many moons ago! My Mum had given me a pair of bright pink plastic knitting needles to teach me to knit. I thought the wool knitted itself into a jumper!!! Needless to say the fact it did not, got the better of me and I never picked up the needles again untill years later when I had children and a household to budget.

I made all of the family knit sweaters and wanted to go one step better so my sons would feel like the Bees Knees whenever they wore them. I experimented with swiss darning designs onto the knitwear. The boys loved them and use to feel extra special as no one had the same as them.

I am self taught at crochet and have made many a crochet baby blanket over the years to give as gifts to friends and loved ones as they have started their families. It was always a special moment for me to see the smile on their face when opening the gift. Thats priceless!

I love what I do, from sourcing the wool, deciding on the design, to the making and the finished product! I specialise in unique crochet baby blankets with my own design, appliqued pictures. They are delightfully individual as only one of each design is made. Simply lovely extra special gifts for baby's arrival.

The process begins with a wild imagination, pencil and paper to sketch the design. The colours are then chosen and the crochet begins! To put the drawn design onto the blanket I use knit ,crochet and also swiss darning and it is like watching a painting develop. I do not use any knit or crochet patterns and enjoy the challenge of working out how to convey the drawing into collage. Its great fun!

I also love the feel good factor of knowing that when a customer purchases a picture blanket to give as a gift, I can imagine the smile on the recipients face......... How lovely is that!

If you have an idea that you would like to see come to fruition please contact me for I will help turn it into a reality for you. Please contact me via etsy to discuss your custom order.
