Two posts in as many days...what on earth is happening here?!
Well, I just wanted to pop by and share my latest blanket. I really loved working on this one and I was sad when it was finished. It's for my daughter, she asked for a new blanket and chose all the colours herself....I think she did well! I decided to make this using the v stitch as I hadn't tried it before and had seen so many beautiful v stitch blankets on Pinterest and Instagram. This stitch is actually addictive...it's so easy and fun to do and I love the effect it gives.
As usual, most of the yarn is Stylecraft Special DK which is my favourite yarn for making blankets which are made to be well used and loved. The colours are cream, fondant, aspen, clematis, parchment, lemon, silver and apricot. There are a couple of random colours in there as well from odd scraps of DK I had in my stash but I'm not sure which brand or shade those were. The v stitch blanket is a great stash buster!
I'm pleased to say that this blanket has been given the nod of approval from my little Miss!
I can definitely see me making another v stitch blanket really soon...I'm thinking one in soft pastel shades will be next. Or perhaps Cath Kidston inspired colours...decisions decisions!
Wishing you all a lovely week.
