So one of my many cousins is expecting a baby next month. I'm not of the 'pink is for girls, blue is for boys' school of thought. I'm told that makes me a bit of a strange bird. So be it! So after some research and a bit of digging through my ever growing stash I came up with The pattern is from The Adventures of The Gingerbread Lady blog. It's her tutorial aptly named Crazy Patchwork -- Klimt Squares.
The yarn is ten different colorway of Chroma Fingering from KnitPicks using a 3 mm crochet hook. These pictures do NOT do this blankie justice. The colors are much brighter and more vivid. I wish this damn dreary weather would go away! It's screwing up my pictures.
And on the tatting front, the practice butterfly edging is working out nicely. Now I just have to find a linen and choose a thread that I like. Handy Hands had oblong table runners in various sizes now, so there's a thought. When I was looking through my yarn stash I came across a tatting WIP that's now a FO! She is Ricarda from Adelheid Dangela's Tatted Butterflies book. She is made with Tatskool's Rainbow Lite HDT size 80 and the body is a vintage J &P Coats thread. The edging is done with a ball of Manuela 20 that I bought when I first learned to tat back in 2001.
Happy March 1! Remember, spring is just around the corner. I can't WAIT.
