Hello, how are you?? My life is at the moment a bit boring. Reading a lot, and because my hands are not as sore anymore, a bit of crochet.
This is Fietje. Usually she is upstairs and doesn’t come down as long as Fleur is in the neighborhood. But now, because I can’t walk with her, Fleur has gone to stay in a kennel, and this little hero dares to come into the living room. Here it looks as if she is asking permission to come closer, but don’t let it fool you; it’s more as if she is warning me that she is.
Just perfect! She can be there for hours. So it is quite a miracle that I managed to finish the blanket.
I’ve used the pattern for the Happy Colours Blanket. The only difference is that for the all the circles are made of 1 colour, and the small squares have circles of 1,2 or 3 rounds, and the large squares have circles of 4,5,6 or 7 rounds.
The border is made using a pattern from Edie Eckman’s book “Crochet Borders” (nr. 22)
This last pic shows how big a difference it can make what you do with a pattern. The same yarn and colours have been used, the same pattern, just a different way of using it.
