So last night as the snow was rapidly piling up and I sat warm and cozy by the fireplace, snuggled on the couch with a crochet hook and some new yarn (waiting for my son to drive home from the snowboard slopes where as he tried to beat the storm home - NOT), I created my next new blanket!
I had been planning this blanket a while in my head. There would be a rainbow of colors and a light grey running through. The pattern would be varied but would have repeats and there would be stripes.
I have now fully devised the pattern, the colors, the stripes and the repeats. I've jotted down the instructions and hopefully I can repeat them just right on the next round. I have a name for the blanket and I will share the recipe upon its completion.
Here's a preview!
I crocheted all night long! The yarn is dk cotton and the blanket is a goodly size - so this is as far as I got..plus the design process takes some trial and error.
As I stitched, the snow fell and fell and by morning, we had 8-10 inches to shovel, so no crochet this morning, it was shovel shovel shovel... here I am all bundled up to go out. 17 degrees F and I was sweating up a storm with all my hard work!
