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.
Bye for now
