Tumbling Colours

The idea was to start blogging again on a regular basis, let’s say once or twice a week. And then Microsoft and Google started arguing and Windows Live Writer was out. No blogging for me.

I’m not really a nerd or a wizkid so I needed help from others to fix this. Husband?…. too busy. Son?….having final exams at school. So I had to wait. Husband is still busy, son has finished his exams and has made it!

And now it seems the argue is over and it all should work again; we’ll see.

So here is the post I already wrote a couple of weeks ago.


Can I say: TADAAAAH ?

Yet another blanket is finished. The idea came to me when I was making a patchwork piece according to the ‘disappearing-9-patch’ design. Would this work with crochet?


Because cutting up crocheted squares didn’t really appeal to me, I thought of a different way of getting the same look. This means that in the end only 2 sizes of squares are made.

Squares are joined as-you-go, so pretty soon it was a joy to work on this blanket; never cold!

Again I used one of my favorite yarns: Drops Safran, lots of white, 7 bold and 7 soft colours. But the blanket can be made with any kind of yarn you like, although I wouldn’t recommend bulky or lacey yarns.


The border is kept quite simple.

Of course the pattern is available in the shop.

Groetjes, Dorien
