Some of my regular readers may be wondering why I have been a bit quiet – or did you think I must be on holiday!
Unfortunately it has been due to the continuing saga of my tooth. Infection, antibiotics and extraction, and now recovery, do not make for high energy, especially as my Chronic Fatigue seems to be getting in on the act. I keep reminding myself that there are so many people with much worse problems than mine but that doesn’t create more energy either.
It is a real shame because I have finished my blanket and the fairy coat and started a new knitting project. Enough for quite a few weeks of sharing.
However I am going for the easy option and talking about my next crochet project.
I always like having a crochet and a knitting project on the go at the same time.
Sandra from Wild Daffodil showed us her latest blanket recently. https://daffodilwild.wordpress.com/2019/05/10/lost-garden-vintage-look/
I always think the similar blankets she has made are really beautiful and the way she chooses the colours as really clever. I have sometimes been tempted to try a similar pattern but never quite had the courage or a use for the blanket.
But with this latest one, I was really charmed by what she had made of the original pattern and thought I could use a similar, though not identical, way of using the pattern to create a beautiful blanket in a style of working that I have not tried before.
I also was staying at my daughter’s over the weekend and she said she would like having the resulting blanket. So all problems solved!
Now I have studied Sandra’s version and had a few ideas of how I would use colours for the different parts but not decided exactly which colours to chose.
Last night I pulled out some of my samples of Stylecraft Special DK and made a short list of colours to choose from.
My tentative first choice is this – But don’t hold me to it!
