I've had a busy busy week being back at work after our holidays, it's left me dog tired, but I have found some time to be naughty in the evenings with this ...
The reason why I say naughty, is because I was supposed to be keeping focused with finishing knitting the sleeves of my scrappy cardigan, however I have found myself distracted with this chevron, ziggy zaggy baby blanket I am making for Lynette who is expecting her first bundle of joy in December.
The pattern is from my copy of this gorgeous book by Jane Brocket. I have made a blanket in this style for myself before and when I went to one of my local yarn stores on Monday lunch time, I saw this Rico Aran 100% wool yarn and simply couldn't resist purchasing these beautiful colours.
I'm really not into blue for boys and pink for girls when it comes to baby blankets, I prefer more earthy colours and my thoughts behind these colours and the order in which I crocheted them was deep earth,earth, grass, sun and sky.
My plan is to repeat this pattern and colour pattern once again to complete the blanket. The first colour I crocheted to represent "deep earth" is actually a deep grey but looks almost purple in the above photo, maybe it looks more purple in the sunlight?
The easy rhythmic crochet of this pattern is ever so gently addictive, I just can't stop!
Wishing you all a marvelous weekend
I can feel the season changing as we head into September, goodbye August
