Early Friday morning here …. a grey and wet one, low on light ……
I’m all comfortable though, coffee on hand, some Chopin playing via Spotify, my hairy assistant happily chewing on a bone right at my feet.
My content feelings are definitely linked to a rather big crochet project being finished, so this is a cheery “ta-dah” post (with lots of photos).
It also relates to the fact that I’m – finally – álmost done writing down the pattern/tutorial for the “Abby” square.
The latter is one of the 13 projects that were originally on the “Follow-up Friday”-wip list, and one of the very last ones to be accomplished. I’m planning on sharing “Abby” and her tutorial over the weekend.
After I crocheted a blanket for Quinn (more on that here), I promised Carter I would make him one too, but never got around to it. So ….. cheating on my own rules (no new projects, until the old wip list was done) I started his blanket on a spur a couple of weeks ago. When I saw this beautiful “Alize, Superlana, Midi” I couldn’t resist. Also, I needed a rather mindless crochet job on the side …..
And what a pleasure it was to work on this chevron – I’ve nothing but enjoyed it.
A big help was Carter cheering me on, telling me how awesome he thought his blanket was going to be. It’s great when our creativity is being appreciated, isn’t it? Here’s some details:
* size: 1.45 x 2.00 m (57 x 78 inches);
* weight: circa 1,6 kg (3,5 lbs);
* pattern: “Chevron Plaid”, by Ilaria Chiaratti, from the “Molly Makes Crochet”-book;
* yarn: “Alize Superlana Midi”, in colors 208, 60, 182, 21, 212, total of 17 skeins (100 gr);
* hooksize: 8 mm (L/11 US)
I tried two different kind of borders, but my client didn’t like either of them, so no border it is.
My next kind of mindless crochet project has already begun (I simply had to try some of that lovely Lana Grossa yarn that was in my yarntasting-goodie bag).
This week, when Carter lied underneath his chevron for the very first time, he texted me: “the blanket is super cool, comfy and chill – xxxx” ….. I love it when recipient and I are both pleased with a finished project ……
Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
