I have my first finish for 2013!
I started this blanket for my daughter, Karítas, on August 28th last year and finished it January 6th. So basically it is a 2012 almostfinish.
This is my first real crochet finish. I mean, something bigger than just swatches or small-ish item like a shawl. I really enjoyed making this, it is simple yet interesting. And I do love the finished piece and Karítas is absolutely thrilled with it.
The set-up of how I changed the colors was inspired by Lucy from Attic24. I love this set-up. It is not too cluttered, yet keeps it interesting. Lucy’s blanket is amazing, and much more colorful than mine. One day I might do another one with more colors than the four I choose this time. I see one in rainbow, or a red/pink/purple theme.
She was so happy to snuggle up in her bed last night with her blanket. And I was super happy to be able to wrap her up in it as she went to bed.
And now, Sumarrós wants a blanket also, off course! We haven’t picked a design, or yarn, or colors, or anything as of yet. But we are going to brainstorm over the weekend and check out some designs and see what she has in mind, and what I am up for doing! Now I am focusing on my Vintage Crochet Throw & Afghan. The picture below was taken when I had 3 color sequences done, but I am on my 7th color sequence today. I want to get it finished soon-ish as it is meant as a gift for a special someone.
