In the last month I have become increasingly interested in crochet edges. Firstly they are very pretty. Secondly a little touch of colour and silky thread can transform an otherwise boring object.
There are several projects I have been working on that I just can’t share at the moment. (Tease!). However, I did this rather basic pattern on a really muted tone open weave throw and I love it. I feel a bit of an obsession coming on.
As the colder weather beds in, the blankets come out! How I love this blanket.
It represents hours of labour, a real determination to reduce my yarn stash, and it was a project I completed fairly early on in my crochet adventures. The pattern is by the very wonderful Alicia Paulson. Don’t look too closely – you will see how it is falling apart. But I have a fondness for this blanket because of its texture and because I continue to follow and love Alicia’s blog. It is the spirit of her creativity and joy in my house.
