I am so sorry to bother you with my yarn issues, again, but I cannot help it. Or should I say: I can’t help myself? The issue is: I think I have found the solution for my bright yarn stash, you see. When searching on the internet I came across with this colourful blanket of Coco Rose Diaries. It is beautiful, don’t you think? Although it is very, very bright: I like it. And so I think this IS the perfect solution for my what-to-do-with-my-bright-yarn, because
A: It’s a ripple, and I love making ripple blankets
B: It has bright colours.
I don’t have the mid blue Coco Rose uses, but I do have plenty of other cheerful colours in my bag. Like the blanket made by Hopscotch Lane, this blankie also has lots of white in it. I like the white so my blanket is probably going to be also a mix of bright and maybe muted colours, just have to see how that works out.
As I don’t want to copy someone elses blanket for 100% I’ll do a few things different. Coco Rose used seven colours, I’ll use more, probably ten. I am leaving the yellow, the one on the left, out and I might add one or two colours. The pattern I’ll use is the one I usually use, and is slightly less ‘pointy’ then Coco’s one. Have a look at the border. Aren’t the pompoms utterly cute? I have never made pompoms (only as a child at school, a long time ago), but I might give it a try. They look absolutely lovely.
Now, I can hardly force myself not to start this blanket immediately, but I must finish my Spring Blanket first. Or is it okay to make a little start with it and crochet that very first foundation chain and the first row? Just one row?
