The saga continues...
The stripey blanket...
30 double rows later (60 single rows) 60cm width
Still going...I only get time to do about 4-6 double rows a day, so at this rate It's going to be ages!! But I enjoy it and it's relaxing, so I don't mind.
Since it is Autumn here, we are having cooler days and colder nights, so It's nice to sit with the bulk of the blanket on me while I crochet!
This last color on the blanket the red one, is called "tomatoe" it is gorgeous! I am not a big fan of red, but this is such a lovely red. As you can see, my blanket is not following any particular order or color pattern. I am going with the flow and as I see it's about time to repeat a certain color, I do. It's definitely a "rainbow" blanket, but it makes me happy!!
The season is changing and the weather is getting colder. I wanted to add some warmer textures to my room, so while I was at it, I added some blue. (normally I have a pink and white rose-pattern duvet and a rose-pattern throw over my couch in my room...
So now it's a blue and pink theme and I LOVE it. A big blue woolen blanket and a smaller crocheted one to sit and snuggle on my couch for those cold days when I sip coffee and read or crochet or try catch some rays of sunshine.
The blue matches my blue walls and the pink spring tree with the bluebirds I painted.
Change is good....
