update!

Sorry for posting twice in one day, I’m just excited to share with you: my new project is going to be a blanket, despite what I said earlier!  I know I’ve made a lot of blankets — in fact we have 3 in our living room right now — but I really like the big projects that take time because the sense of accomplishment is so great, and I can always give it as a gift to someone really special if the need ever arises.  Now I know I said I’d never use Berroco Vintage Chunky again for a blanket due to expense, but there’s just nothing like it, and I plan on making a smaller throw anyway so it won’t take  nearly as much yarn as my large previous blankets.  Here are my colors:

I have 2 skeins each of grey, light blue, light pink, red, yellow, pink, denim, and a bluish-teal color.  I was trying to go kinda Cath Kidston-y, and although this may make a darker blanket than I originally planned, I’m excited about the color combo anyway.  I think it’ll look great!

Here’s the pattern I’m going to use:

That picture is from Sarah London’s pattern page, but there’s also a similar (if not the same) pattern on the Lion Brand website, with an added ruffly border to add if desired.

I’m going to work on it right now — wish me luck!

      Thank you so much! The pictures that I take are edited in Photoshop because the lighting in my apartment is terrible. I try to get the photos brighter and get the colors as true to the real thing as possible.
