I have seen so many blankets in blogs, magazines and Pinterest ... and many of them are the V-Stitch.
This is a stitch that I haven't used myself... until now!
Having used lots of pink recently I thought I'd return to my good old favourite - blue!
I decided I was going to use just scraps again and also wanted an extra "pop" every so often
so included a bright yellow and a peachy orange.
I cannot believe that I haven't used this stitch before. It is wonderful!
So simple and almost mindless crocheting. It made an absolute ideal project to have in front of the telly!
I usually do crochet or knit in the evening in front of the box -
but with this one I barely had to look at the work I was crocheting!
It worked up incredibly quickly too - I found myself completing about ten rows or so a night.
What a way to grow a blanket!
There is something very pleasing about blues and the yellow/peachy orange together,
every time I looked at it I smiled.
I can't decide if this is because I really like blue ... or that the combination is just one that works!
What do you think?
(I do like playing with colour combinations and sometimes find that I like combinations that I would never have considered putting together.)
And it got Trixie's approval too as she decided to photo-bomb the last photo I took!
