The “Dijon” Blanket is finished and I’m so very happy with the way it turned out – I’m afraid I’m going to bombard you with photos!

A lot of crochet hours went into this plain sailing, but hours well spent – I truly enjoyed the ride. The beautiful texture of this stitch/pattern makes sure this (baby or lap) blanket is really comfy and warm.

While working on this blanket, I was wondering whether you too crochet things in a color combination that you’ve really fallen for, but know beforehand that it’s not going to fit into your home decor …….

It’s a good thing there’s friends and family to gift handmade things too, and of course there’s my Etsy shop, in which this beauty is already listed.

I’m almost too embarrased to admit it, but I’ve already picked out new colors to start another one …….
