The other day I was reading an interview with Etsy's featured seller: Roots and Feathers when I saw this picture:

I cut the musings short, I fought the temptation to be excessive. I already *have* a blanket project.
Remember this one? It's my "Bed of Roses" blankie. It's growing and growing....
...and looking gorgeous on my bed.
I've made some tweaks to the size. 8 squares wide and 11 deep. I've also finished up a skein of each color and can now tell you that 1 skein of my red goes toward 11 roses, and 1 skein of my silver goes toward 16 squares.
In short: I'm going to need more yarn. Oh, drat. ;)
|Like my stash basket? Me too. Here's the free pattern, available from the Purl bee. |
I love their website, gorgeous colors!
I love my rosie blanket. And I'm trying to remind myself of that when faced with temptation to put it on hold (ie, ditch it) to make a different blanket that I'll likely end up ditching. I must break the Crochet-ADD cycle!
