Beautiful shades of blues complemented by the cream can't wait to start this project, well written pattern which I think will be easy to follow
A blanket in waiting
As I was approaching the end of my birthday blanket kit I was inspired to purchase the next kit,so I don't have a gap in my non tech therapy. The colours look good and I am sure the outcome will be more than satisfactory. Having been inspired to change from granny square blankets last year. I have reached the point of gathering together all the leftover yarn from kits to make a truely random granny square blanket. But after the delft blanket.
Couldn't fault anything.
