Each year in January, Lucy of Attic24, has a Crochet Along and I love to join in.
This year Lucy took the colours of a harbour as her inspiration. Although I liked Lucy’s colour choices, I was making this for Miss P, who absolutely LOVES bright colours, so I had to go BRIGHT.
Kingston Lacy Christmas lights
Well – maybe not quite that bright.
Starting row of Chain 150, I have made a Lap Blanket
In Stylecraft Special Double Knit (SSDK) and a 4.5mm hook
In Lucy’s Easy Eyelet Ripple
My colour order is:
Lapis, Bright Pink, Clementine, Empire, Fondant, Sunshine, Cornish Blue,

49 colour stripes, each of two rows.
First row to fill in the ripples – Cornish Blue.

In March I spent a glorious day with friends at Sculpture by the Lakes, we hired a private space there, The Pavilion, it was glorious.
and I took the blanket out and about for its own little photo shoot
I hope Miss P will like the blanket. I think her sister might want one as well, I wonder what colours she will choose.
