I have recently discovered a whole new world of crochet on Instagram and have taken to following a couple of inspirational crocheters in particular. I have become a huge fan of Faye of Little Dove Crochet and Laurelin of Mrs. Snufflebean. If you have not already seen their work you must take a look.
As you know I have been busy making my bobblilicious blanket, which is really growing now, with Cygnet yarn.
As I was sharing this on Instagram I came across @mrsnufflebeanyarns and her lovely stock of Cygnet yarns. It was her latest collection of Fairy Isle wool by Cygnet that really caught my eye and I bought a pack of Cornflower from her(which was delivered very quickly and well packaged).
I set about starting a new blanket straight away. I am using a simple stitch for this consisting of a double crochet and then two trebles(uk). I have used this stitch before with a chunkier wool to create a blanket for my Mum but the difference with this wool is lovely. The Fairy Isle wool is creating a daintier pattern and I love the colours as they change.
I really really love this wool and I must say it feels really soft and squidgy. The blanket is developing very quickly and I am pleased with my progress so far. As you can see it is coming along lovely.
Bye for Now
