it’s here!

Stylecraft Special DK: the “Lucy Pack”

Finally, my package from Deramores is here!  It took 19 working days, which was longer than it was supposed to take, but now that it’s here I know that it was totally worth the wait.  The colors are so gorgeous and vibrant, and the yarn is so soft!  I was not expecting it to be so soft, considering it’s 100% acrylic, but I think it’s going to be great to work with!  I never use DK yarn so it will probably take me a long time, but that’s fine with me.

I’ll be making another ripple blanket.  The first one I made looks so great but I don’t use it because I made it with Berroco Vintage Chunky, which was expensive, and I don’t want to mess it up.  It covers the bed in the spare room.  This new one will be used frequently and bring much happiness to our downstairs living area.

Since I got “the Lucy Pack” and am making Lucy’s pattern, I feel a little bit like a copycat.  I assuage these feelings with the knowledge that my new blanket will be super cute, and that it’s not exactly like hers (“the Lucy Pack” was put together based on her granny stripe blanket, I believe, not her ripple blanket).

Well, I’m off to work out a color progression, thanks for stopping by!
