Love the free patterns, always looking for future projects to carry out.
I had to place an order for another skein of denim because it is not enough. If you look at the stripe placement in the pic the saffron/yellow is 2 skeins- why is the denim in the kit only one skein??? I love the yarn & pattern, yet here I sit waiting for that denim to be delivered...
It has been added to my stash and will probably take me a while to get round to it. Wish you sold "time" to go with the projects! I now have 3 blankets to knit/crochet in the cupboard and I am still on Christmas knitting at present! I really shouldn't look at your emails/site cos I love too much of it
This was great fun to crochet. There was plenty of yarn in all colours except the denim blue which came up short with not enough to complete fringe. I adapted and actually did a twisted fring on this which worked well.
It is so nice and fun to crochet a rainbow blanket. The perfect gift for rainy days to be warm under.
