It has been a week of bad weather, we’ve had temperatures around 0 C and some snow mixed with rain. With some I mean lots. Everything is wet wet wet and mostly grey, although some specks of white still remain here and there. I just wish it would be proper winter or proper spring! But I guess this weather will stay until April at least.
I tried to cure the bad weather mood with some colour, my second Lucy pack of Stylecraft yarn arrived! So now I’m back on my mixed stripes blanket. I’ve decided to not follow Not Your Average Crochet‘s pattern fully, I’m trying to improvise a bit more and use stitches from other blankets I’ve seen. Little Woolie‘s for example. I’ve also switched from always working back and forth to trying to keep one side as the front and always working from that side. Little Woolie did that for hers and it looks a lot tidier in my opinion!
I need people’s opinion on the duotone cowl I posted last week, I fell out of love with it. I think there is too little contrast between the blue and black for it to work out, really. It’s in hibernation now, but I will probably frog it if I can’t convince myself it looks good. Instead, I started an Isla wrap in my purple Madelinetosh. Loving it a lot so far!
I think that’s all for today, not a very eventful week :) I hope you’ll have better weather than we’ve had!
