Here is my Work In Progress project this week…
Hey everyone! Excuse me while I dust off the crochet blog here…. I have been in a creative rut recently. I have plenty of projects I could be doing, like the knitted puppy for my daughter. I just lost a lot of steam. Does this happen to any of you? I got a text message last week from my friend Jess and she was wondering if I could make her little one a blanket. I was excited because it was the change I needed to get me back into crafty mode again. After some emails with different ideas and designs, she decided on a chevron (aka ripple) blanket. Before I started, I sketched out two different ideas for the striping. Either thin stripes alternating the two colors, or bigger thick stripes. She chose the bigger stripes, which was a great idea since she only wanted two colors. I do six rows of each color. When it’s finished it will be probably 60 rows total
I love the colors she chose. I have made a couple blankets for her now and she always picks great colors. She has two girls and she wanted girl colors but not pink. These are perfect! The pattern is from Lionbrand.com and is really easy. Child’s Chevron Throw That’s all for now friends. I hope doing this blanket will get me motivated again. I may work on my granny square blanket next.
Have a great Wednesday
