I just love creating, I love working with my hands, I find it very challenging and rewarding.
I learned to crochet as a kid. My mother taught me as a young girl, and I must say my cabbage patch dolls had a very sophisticated wardrobe including very chic and one of a kind ponchos.
I recently picked up a crochet hook again. It came right back. I made myself a blanket first to test out a pattern, yarn, size etc. I’m in love with Loops & Threads from Michaels.
Here is my third blanket. It was a birthday gift for my very special niece Ashley (Sweet Smash) for her 13th birthday. I found this pattern online – Vintage Ripple Pattern. A very kind person posted an old pattern her grandmother used to use. (see link at the bottom).
I hope my niece feels comforted every time she cuddles up in it:
The colours are amazing! I picked this colour “Cascade” by Loops & Threads because of the blues and earthy complimenting colours. It reminds me of the sea/ocean/nautical.
