The annual Attic24 Crochet Along is always such a lovely event to be part of. Thousands of people, all around the world join in.
There is something quite magical about being part of a group of people all making the same crocheted blanket at the same time.
I am making a lap blanket for the granddaughter of one of my closest friends. My friend and I used to collect our grandchildren from the local Primary School every Friday for about 4 years. If the weather was fine we would take them to the Park. The children played on the swings and climbing frames while we chatted and I crocheted.
A few of the children would come to watch the crochet and Miss P was always particularly drawn to the bright colours.
She was very interested in Little Miss M’s blanket, and watched it grow.
Lucy has taken her inspiration from the colours seen at a harbour in Summer. She has 9 different blues in her design. I will swap out a few blues for pinks and reds, keeping the summery feel but going with brightness for MissP, and most importantly, using yarn I already have instead of buying new..
My colour order for the first 15 rows:
Lobelia, Turquoise, Bright Pink, Spice, Aster,
Sunshine, Spearmint, Fondant, Matador, Empire,
Aqua, Clementine, Turquoise, Bright Pink, Lobelia
