Hello! How is your week going? I am actually keeping very busy with crochet type things, I have received a couple of orders for things from people who visited my stall at the market, which is a lovely bonus and means I will be kept busy with the hook for the next week or so. I feel like I almost have a 'proper' job with all my different yarny endeavours - the market, orders and my online shop and blog all add up to keeping me pretty busy, I am so happy that I can work for myself with such a nice variety of tasks to do day to day, I feel very lucky! Thank you all for the lovely encouragement and support you wonderful crafty peeps have given to me over the last few years, it really is worth following your dreams, I am so glad I decided to follow mine! xxx
So anyway, I thought I'd show you how my neon stripe blanket finished up, I crocheted the edge last night and I think it has turned out really well! I am really liking the grey with the brights, I hope my lovely customer, like it too, it will be winging it's way across the ocean very soon!
.....here's how it looks flat out, it has ended up about cot sized I think, and took about 18 balls of wool!
In case anyone is interested, the yarns I used were:
Zara for the neon stripes, 1 ball of each colour, and Loyal DK in the dark grey 13 balls.
It is just the basic skinny stripe pattern of 1 double row of sc in a neon colour, alternated with 4 double rows of grey. My other skinny stripe blankets with single stripes of colour are here and here.
Have a great hooky day!
