I was flicking through Facebook at the weekend seeing what everyone was up to an noticed that Lucy of Attic24 fame is running a step-by -step tutorial for making a Cosy Strip Blanket. Now if you ever see her work you will know that she uses the most beautiful colours that I frequently envy.
Being of the most lazy mind set I was delighted to discover that the Woolwarehouse is selling a 15 x 100g ball pack of yarn for the Cosy Strip Blanket. Yippee no more buying wool in pretty colours that when you get them in the post do not look remotely similar to what you thought you were buying. I ordered Sunday and got the wool today (Tuesday). The wool is lovely and soft and has a slight shimmer to it. They even packed it into its own little storage bag so I can keep the wool together until required. According to the note enclosed it will make a Attic24 Cosy Stripe Blanket measuring 120 cm x 180 cm. The size for a single bed.
The step-by-step tutorial can be found at the Attic24 Weblog. This could be a crochet-along as Lucy is updating her blog every Sunday thoughout November and December 2014 with her progress as she makes the blanket.
I am just about to start the second colour. Looking good so far.
