I can't believe it has been a week already since I was last here. I can't think quite what I have been doing with all my spare time this week! Too much day-dreaming probably.
Still, at least you can crochet and day-dream at the same time - in fact I find that one tends to naturally lead to the other. I'm still working hard on my Something Pretty blanket.
I am completely entranced by these little 3d flowers - they have such a girly vintage vibe to them. The only problem is that they do use up quite a lot of yarn!
I'm so glad to have figured this pattern out finally - I had a little trouble with making the petals at first - I was doing cluster stitch, which I knew wasn't right, as my petals weren't 3d. Finally after trying on and off to work the pattern out since Christmas I had an epiphany (whilst trying to get to sleep one night - I probably even dream about crochet - how sad!) a couple of weeks ago, and it all fell into place. It really is a lovely pattern, thankyou Millie Makes!
I've used 7 different colours to make the flowers for this blanket, and then white for the backgrounds. I don't anticipate that this will be a very large blanket - the cost would become ruinous for one blanket. I'll share more pictures when it's finished.
I am glad it is February. I've been sky watching a lot over the past week. Although its still so dark when I get up that I'm seeing the moon set rather than the sun rise, it has been rather lovely.
