Mocha Blanket

Hi,

I have been busy off and on creating a simple blanket for myself for the winter nights that will soon be upon us.  On a recent caravan trip we stayed at the Chapel Lane Caravan Club site just off Junction 3 off the M42 at Wythall.



We love this site as it is close to home but far enough away to make us feel like we are 'on holiday'.  It is a very peaceful site and the wardens are really friendly and helpful there.  There is a smashing Farm shop just a short walk from the site called Bennetts which we always visit during a stay there.  On one of our visits to the shop I discovered these fantastic flavoured coffees.  


There are a range of flavours including French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Chocolate and Orange, Maple Walnut and Chocolate Caramel which are my favourites so far. I am a real coffee lover and must say a mug of coffee is never far away when I am busy crocheting.


Hence, the name for my newest creation "Mocha Blanket".  I have loved making this.  It has simply been row after row of daisy stitch in a tweed effect aran.  


I finished it off with a contrasting brown double knit wool to create a scalloped border.


Then 'Ta-da!' All complete!  Really pleased with it and I have already made use of it during these cooler Autumn evenings.


Need to look at my next project now!  I have something in mind but will fill you in at a later date....

Bye for now
