welcome! hopefully all goes well with you!
it’s been about three weeks since i last wrote a blog post.
in recent weeks i finished the yellow vest and a new version of the orange spider bag.
this time it has become the lilac spider bag with a different type of top and handles, but the stitch pattern is the same. at first the shape of the bag has not become what i had in mind, i put it in the closet and have not looked at it for a few days and now i actually think the bag looks fine. i still have some improvements to make and after that i will post a couple of new photos.
a few years ago i worked on the blue diamonds blanket and although it is not quite done i want to do something similar.
and maybe you can remember the baby blanket? see here for the pictures and pattern. i had made some variations on the stitch pattern of that blanket, please see here for the photos. the large dark gray blocks i like the most and that is the pattern i chose to make a blanket of only those fake squares.
the new blanket will be a combination of the ideas of these three blankets.
the yarn is called opaline and it is phildar impact 6 and i crochet with hook size 6.5 mm. the color reminds me of sea glass and therefore i want to decorate the rug with colors that you can see on pictures of sea glass, see here or here.
i still have a long way to go before the blanket is finished, but i find it quite fun to work on while imagine how i’m going to decorate it.
that is it for today, the ‘how to’ for the foldover bag is coming, please be patient for a little while?
