So as we have seen, I am pretty rubbish at being organised with CALs. I mean, the Last dance on the beach took me forever and the Pick and Mix blanket still hasnt been started but I feel optomistic with this one.
Isnt it a beauty? Its called the Hook and Learn blanket.
The idea is that it uses 12 different stitches in different blocks so is a real sampler blanket.
Anyways, I got my inspiration whilst I was cuddled up on the sofa surrounded by crocheted blankets reading my copy of Simply Crochet Magazine. There are 2 yarn choices shown on the page – one in Scheepjes River Washed and one in Colour Crafter. And then I remembered I had loads of colour crafter left from my Last Dance on the Beach blanket. 5 and a half balls worth to be precise.
Its only a 9 ball blanket all told so I would only need to do a top up shop for supplys. This could be a great way to use it all up and to enjoy making amother blanket without much more financial outlay! One of the things I really enjoyed about my last CAL was learning so many new stitches! So off I trundled to wool warehouse and picked up 4 more balls. This is what I got. (The 4 at the top)
I love purple but dont want it to be exactly the same colour as my Last Dance blanket. So I added some teals and turquoises to the mix.
Dont they look lovely together? I cant wait to see how it works out. And hey, maybe I will even keep up with this CAL for a change!
