I wanted this next photo to be cat-free but let me zoom out to show you my cat Bootsie – lol.. She is very independent but has gotten extremely clingy since we took in a stray kitten a couple of weeks ago.

The actual photo with the Secret Garden yarns I plan to use in my latest pattern brainstorm which will feature diamonds and bobbles ❤️❤️❤️

Peep all of the brand new Secret Garden “solids” – gorgeous tweeds – and notice the beautifully chosen colors for the little marly bits.

I chose three of the multis for my project:

Close up of Rambling Blooms because Heart Eyessss, I love this!! What kind of Aladdin Jasmine royal sorcery is this gorgeous color??

By the way, last minute I decided to move the solid red over to the multi side. This pattern will alternate between solid and multi, and I want all the solid colors to stand out! So I’ll be hiding dispersed red squares throughout the multi sections 🙂 Much better 🙂

Can’t wait to share more of my Secret Garden project with you all!

Here’s my first square:

I would describe this yarn as a thick and thin tweed.. how fun is that?! Every stitch is a surprise and I’m looking forward to using all the colors – if the solids are this fun, I can only imagine the multis!

More to come on this project. I think I’ll name it “Hearthside Blanket” because it’s so homey and cozy with familiar and dear square patterning.

  1. Isn’t this yarn just a bit of heaven? The colors! The texture! The touch! Can’t wait to see what gloriousness you create with it! <3

  2. Hi , I am new to your blog and would like to crochet along your Secret Garden project. Can you tell which colors you will be using and how much of each is needed.
    Are the patterns for each square to be published ?

    • Hello Helene!
      I will make a WIP post soon with the chosen colors and amounts. This will be a free pattern meant to crochet rather mindlessly to add to the “cozy comfort” factor, so there are only 2 square patterns. I’m not sure if it’s something that will be so interesting to crochet along with! But I will post progress update here and on Instagram/Facebook – hope you enjoy 🙂
