Going with the blanket theme, this is what I’ve been working on lately.
Pattern from Coco Rose Diaries (scroll down).
This is the third blanket I’ve started this year. Here are the first
I’ve noticed I much prefer making household items (like blankets) to making something to wear, just as I prefer thrifting household items to thrifting clothes. Not sure why, but I’m just going to roll with it.
This project is much like the granny square blanket: made in small instalments and then sewn together. I love it for the reasons I told then, but on the flip side there is also about a million ends to finish.
As for the colour choices, I love colourful things – just not on me or in my home. So while I loved the pretty pink and orange original, I tried to stay true to my nature and went with white and grey.
