I’ve been too busy running errands lately to get in much riding. By the time I get home, it’s too hot. So I’ve been getting in quite a bit of needlework, instead.
One project has been coming along very quickly. I saw a blanket online that I really liked — the Coast Blanket by Attic24 . I didn’t think it was practical to send all the way to England for the yarn she used, but many of the colors were close to those I used in the Faerie’s Garden blanket. Why not see what I could do with those?
The idea of the Coast Blanket was to use colors reminiscent of the seashore, in random order. Not only blues, but greens, golds, grays, and aquas — colors of sea, sky, sand, seaweed, and stone. (Isn’t it interesting how many words about the seashore start with an “s”?)
Here are the results so far.
I think I’ll call it the “Pacific Coast” blanket. It’s not as pretty as Attic24’s — the yarn is much heavier — but I think it’ll turn out well.
I did get in a good ride this morning. Kitty and I and the dogs went out with Cheryl and Jennifer. I took a few photos — I’ll get them downloaded and edited, and post them tomorrow.
