Louise’s April Blog – Day 11 – Scrappy blanket

Hello, Another dark gloomy day with a bit more rain.  Oliver enjoys the rain and likes to play out in the garden.  Over this week the garden has become a giant mud pit due to all the rain we have had.  George has come home after staying with Mam and Dad for days.

Pattern testing I have finished testing a new pattern for a scrappy blanket.  I can't wait for us to release the pattern next week. I don't have a massive amount of 4ply scraps or minis in my yarn stash so it is good excuse to buy new yarns :-)

What I was making this time last year Last year I made our Louise's blanket crochet pattern, I really loved making this blanket and it was the blanket that really got me back into crochet . The finished blanket is very bright and cheerful.  The pattern makes a blanket which doesn't have holes in it making it very warm and cosy.
