……Ladies and maybe a gentleman or two, may I represent my first ever finished crochet blanket!
Yes, my first.
I am a very eager starter when it comes to any project but halfway through something else catches my eye and my project becomes part of the WIP pile. Sometimes it will stay there for a month but *hanging my head in shame* some will never see my hook or needles again…
This amazing blanket was my gift to my daughter who started studying at WITS this year.
We decided on Vinnis Bambi, a beautiful blend of 70% organic cotton and 30% bamboo blend.
The yarn is hand dyed and balled by women in a rural area of South Africa.
The primary colours I used was turquoise, black, and natural and all the others colours was part of the secondary palette.
I used Kathy Merrick‘s pattern for the basic layout but didn’t follow her pattern when it came to the colour combinations for each block.
If you are looking for a project that is easy, fun and where you can express your creativity, I highly recommend this blanket!
