Colour Jackpot!

sunny-blanket-2I ´went to visit the expecting couple again, and sneaked upstairs to their nursery room to get a few pics of the blanket in its natural habitat. The photo shows only a bit, but apparently I really hit a colour jackpot! Somehow, without having any idea what their nursery would look like, I had picked the colours that really fit! The only way the blanket had been more harmonious with the room, would have been if I had stitched some monkeys on top of it. Yes, they have little monkeys on the walls of their nursery room! 🙂

By the way, I also listed the blanket on Ravelry. I am still very new to this, so I am not really sure how it works, but I’ll figure it our along the way.

Crochet-Enabling Weather

These past days we’ve been having snowstorms and cold temperatures in double digits, so I’ve really only went out of the house for the inevitable – work, gym, and a few meetups with friends that were long overdue. The rest of the time I have mostly spent wrapped up in blankets, with my back against the heater and a hook in my hands.

Pelagia: Lana Gatto Misina

The picture above is the colour scheme for a baby blanket, which I need to finish by end of January. This is when I get on a plane to visit family friends, who are expecting a baby! They have told us the gender of the baby, but I tend to prefer gender-neutral colours for bay stuff. So this time, the blanket will have natural greens, beige, and a little bit of sunshine tied in. We all need a bit of sunshine these days.

Pelagia: Neat Ripple Blanket

I am using the Neat Ripple pattern from Lucy of Attic24. I love her work. What she does is so simple, but at the same time her colour combinations are an instant cheer-up!

Now, who wants to be my cheerleader, so I can get this thing done by January 24th? 😀
