One day I was kind of thinking. It would be fun to do a little blanket swap with my buddy Rachel. She is really good at sewing and I know how to crochet so why not make each other blankets! I asked her about it and she was totally on board. We started discussing colors for each other and patterns. I gave her my colors and said to just surprise me with the pattern. When it comes to quilts, I won’t be picky since I think most of them are really cool! For Rachel’s, she picked these colors (minus the taupe and orange color). Aren’t they cool??
For the pattern, she chose a cool chevron pattern from here.
After we figured that all out, I went to Michael’s for yarn. I sent multiple pictures to Rachel while I was there and I ended up finding some pretty close!
I got 4 skeins of each color just to make sure I had enough. Oh and I also had a coupon so why not stock up?
I decided on acrylic just so it would be easy to wash and comfortable.
I’m really excited to make the blanket! I have already started and am figuring out the chevron groove. I can’t wait to see it finished. I need to keep my patience and motivation as I do this project. I have a hard time with blankets. I tend to get bored sometimes! But this is a cool pattern that keeps you thinking a little. I also am making it for Rachel and I am excited to give it to her!
Happy Monday Folks
