Yes I've gone and done it again!

Fantasy Blanket Progress

I have just gone and done what I always do! jumped in with both feet and started another project when I already have about another six on the go.  Yes you may well have guessed  Ana's has done it again with her Fantasy blanket when I saw it I really couldn't resist, it's such a beautiful whimsical blanket how could I?



So first it was the selection of the yarn, most of it came out of my baby stash because I want this to be a blanket in pastel shades with splashes of deeper colour here and there.



Then out I went into the garden into the beautiful sunshine feeling so happy, because the sun was shinning and because I couldn't wait to get started.  It seemed so right to be hooking this blanket amongst my flowers.








Here is my progress so far, I love all the different stitches in this blanket and it really is a fantasy blanket because you can weave your own story into it with each different stitch you use.


blanket, stash-buster, pretty, romantic, easy, crochet

I can see flowers, grass, sea, sand and sky, all the magic of summer.



 It blends well with my roses.



A touch of Summer romance.

 Thank you Ana for designing this lovely blanket I think I will be making more than one.

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

  1. What is with this urge to start another make when we are inundated with wips as it is!!! Like yourself I have this terrible urge to start up a blanket ( I have this image in my head of the finished item Ha! Ha!) and I haven't made a blanket in years. At present I am managing to resist the urge to down hook on the other bits I'm making.
    It is such a good feeling starting up something new,isn't it? You have certainly chosen the right place to go about it ...lovely surroundings! I do so love Ana's blanket and hasn't she just woven lots of magic into those threads.
    It seems to me Linda you are putting lots of feelings and whimsical thoughts into it too and the colours are perfect for the summer. Its going to be packed with loveliness :-)

    keep well

  2. Ha ha ha, if misery loves company, you got it, baby! Love the colors! Don't even ask me how many unfinished projects I've finished...as I've vowed to do! But I will tell you that three new projects were started just yesterday. They are quick makes, but still...three of them are on the table in front of me! Hugs, Annette

  4. Lovely. I like the little touches of beige for the seaside sand. I would never have thought of adding that colour, but it works well. It will always remind you of summer.

  6. Wow when you jump, you jump pretty fast. Look how far you are on the blanket already! I love the colors and the beautiful pattern. I just finished a shawl for my MIL last night, I couldn't wait to get it done. Today is a brand new day to start something new, I would feel really great about it if my African Flower baby blanket wasn't staring at me from the basket, in it sorry, unfinished state.
    Hugs to you,
    Meredith
