Do you remember my secret garden blanket? It is finished and almost ready to hang on the wall. In the last post i made a edge of roses. I had the idea that some water in my garden would be nice so I made two rows of ditches with some flowers like the yellow lis on the banks of the ditch. It is not so complicated to make. But there are a lot of rows to crochet.
I am almost ready crocheting my Secret Garden blanket. I have to make an edge now to finish the blanket. I will reveal in a few blogs some details of the Secret Garden.
The first part I made was the pond. My idea was to show the ripples and waves on the water, so I made a rectangle piece of blue and white yarn. (see picture) I used all kinds of stitches to give the pond a watery effect.
The yarn where some leftover balls of the Sophie’s Universe Blanket from last year. I ordered some more balls and used also some stash yarn of an other brand. On my Ravelry page you can find the yarns I used. I am still in love with the colors of the SMC Bravo, which will be most used in the blanket.
Mostly I write down what I have done, about the different parts of the blanket, so I can later on make a design note, although I don’t know if there is interest in my small blanket or the design.
7 April was the start of the Lily pond CAL from Stylecraft yarns. Because I liked the blanket idea I am participating in the CAL. The first part is a piece of water. I turned out very nicely. The picture is a bit less color-full than the real piece. I have also a problem. The lily pond Blanket is a kind of granny blanket, so every piece has to be a certain size. But my piece of water is too large. I can do several things like starting all over, make more rows, crochet with less stitches, but it all depends on the squares, so I have to wait till I made a square and knows its size. An other problem was forgetting to order a nice blue color. But now I have time to do it still.
