I ´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.
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.
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.
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? 😀
