When I turned on my computer this morning and read Lucy's latest post on Attic24 I couldn't believe my eyes.... for there was my latest project!
I had started to tell you in my first draft of this post that I have wanted to make a dark edged blanket since I learnt how to crochet and I have finally started one edged in midnight blue. Then I went on to tell you that I decided on the pattern after looking at blankets on Pinterest and just made the pattern up by looking at this blanket. It wasn't till I read the post on Attic24 that I realised it was Lucy's Granny Wheel pattern but with four rounds. I think the synchronicity of the two posts is rather wonderful and is the perfect example of the "circle of inspiration" Lucy is writing about.
So here is what I have made... I like the results so far, and it is lovely to use any colours I fancy and not worry if they go together or not. It is going to be called my "Blues chaser blanket", as the cheerful colours are brightening up these grey January days and making me H.A.P.P.Y.
I have been using the Clover hook for the past couple of days and I do find it much better than the metal hooks I have been using, so thank you again for taking the time to offer your advice.
Happy Thursday x
