Developing Chains

My crochet journey.

Sweetpea Blanket — June 13, 2018

Sweetpea Blanket

I have finally finished the Sweetpea Blanket. It’s not the entire pattern. I’d work on it and then leave and return and forget it was written in UK terms. Needless to say it’s got a little US and UK stitches mixed in. But I’m still impressed with how it turned out. I decided to use “I love this cotton” yarn from Hobby Lobby.

Sweetpea Blanket Crochet Along Week 1 — April 18, 2018

Sweetpea Blanket Crochet Along Week 1

So, I found the Sweetpea Blanket Crochet along on accident while looking for CAL. Of course it had already begun, so I’m behind, but loving every minute.

I just finished the first week. I bought lots of cotton yarn about a year ago on sale at Hobby Lobby and decided to use it for this blanket. I didn’t have all the colors asked in the pattern, so I’ve made some adjustments, but tried to keep it Spring-like.

Here’s what I have for the first week:

I’m beginning the Cosmic CAL. Here are the colors I chose:

  • Antique White
  • Pastel Blue
  • Claret
  • Denim
  • Cherry
  • Honey Bee
  • Lavender
  • Pastel Green
  • Pastel Pink

The CAL runs 9 weeks. I’m excited to get started and see what it looks like in the end. It’s a great way to learn new stitches and create something awesome in the process. I’ll keep you all updated as the weeks progress.
