Cosy Catch up

Hello............ It's been quite a while since I last did a post about my 'Seaside Pebble' Cosy blanket, in fact the last one was here way back in September eek.

Well progress since then has been kind of slow, what with a relapse of my chronic illness, plus Christmas and then crafting for the local exhibition.

I've picked it up on and off thoughout the winter, adding a row here and there. 

The pattern if anyone's wondering is Lucy over at Attic24's Cosy Stripe, I started this make in the Autumn of 2014 joining in with Lucy Crochet Along, but due to my limited crochet time and poor energy levels, where most people finished there blankets well over a year ago mines turned into more of a endurance event..... 

but I'm still loving the soothing colours and sparkle of my seaside theme

As you can see I've been a bit naughty with the ends, not sewing them in as I go, but now I'm kinda loving them as they remind me so much of the sea, so I'm wondering if tassel's might be the way to go when I'm finished.

I'm a way off  that yet though, as I want my blanket to fit a double bed.

 Here's a update on the colours if you are following along

silver 111-112
cream 113-114
brown sparkle 115-116
white  117-118
blue sparkle 119-120
parchment 121-122
silver 123-124
white sparkle 125-126
cream 127-128

Happy Crafting

  1. Your blanket is so GORGEOUS, Clare, and I'm so happy I found your blog and the inspiration to crochet my own 35/36, following your wonderful colors choice. I'm waaaay behind, as I only started it two months ago, and have reached rows 35/36, but I'm enjoying every stitch :)

    So heartful THANKS again, Clare, keep going !

    In stitches,

  2. Your colors are beautiful, it is a beautiful blanket.

  3. That blanket is beautiful! I does remind me so much of the seaside and looks cozy. I'm guessing it's fun to knit under during the cool weather. :-). Who cares how long it takes? It's the joy of the making of it that counts.

  4. A beautiful blanket indeed, love the colour combination. The fun is in the making, so it will take as long as it takes to make. Take care.

  5. Your Cosy Stripe blanket is beautiful. I didn't notice the sparkles until I read the note. What fun!

  8. I so love this seaside pebble blanket, such soothing colours. Definitely worth the time and effort you are putting into it. xx
