Mystery Meadow Blanket

Yes, here I am again, two days in a row.  I have another new finish to share. This is my DROPS Mystery Meadow Blanket (CAL), and if you are not familiar with it, you can still take your own stab at it here. It was a fun crochet a long, however it is from a Dutch yarn company and the English directions were a bit wonky. Glad they had diagrams to go by, and sadly, they wanted us to start in middle of rounds and I am start at the corners crocheter, so I had to study and prepare each week to find my starting point in the directions.

The blanket is a bit smaller than I had hoped it would be.  I used Stylecraft Special DK and Stylecraft Life DK for mine, and upped my hook to 3.50.  That was a good move, but do designers forget some of us are tall?  LOL.  I chose my colors from a link I had found on Pinterest...

...lovely Stylecraft Special DK in Parchment, Mocha, Sage, Pale Rose, Parma Violet, Grape, Cream, Soft Peach and Storm Blue, plus Stylecraft Life DK in Ice Blue and Mint. I think it is a pretty Victorian, feminine combo.

I do love how this came out!

Ahhhh, so very beautiful. I adore that color combo. Saw your pillow and I must say that I am impressed.

Much like you, I have neglected my blog. One reason may be because WE ARE MOVING TO PA !!! That would be move #10 :-D

Crazy huh?

Hope all is well with you my friend.
