There are many reasons to love crafting, and in my case trying to improve my skills - one of them is to able to recreate some items that are available but at great expense, or that do not exist anymore, or that I have only seen a picture of.
This is the case of this blanket that I pinned a year ago (apparently). I knew it would be possible to find a pattern (well at least I was hoping to), and then I found it!
I am not saying this is the easiest/quickest project I would be taking on - I am thinking probably 5 or 6 years (at my speed), but after a year on my Pinterest board I still love it - that mix of vintage and grey, so I am probably still going to be in love with it by the time I finish it, right?
So I found the (free) pattern on Ravelry, and it confirmed what I knew all along - I could make my own. I am looking at this other (free) pattern to adapt the border and add a diamond border.
The yarn is from Swans Island in Graphite - organic and using environmental-friendly dyes (of course).
So day that I knit a block over 2 months, I may be able to have my new bed cover by Christmas 2018... Something to look forward to..
