Better late than never has never felt so good. This FO* is coming after the completion of a long, long list of Super Huge Important Things I had to do, so the delay was definitely worth it, trust me. 2018 is my year of Self Love. Advertisements
Remember the yarn remnant box I pulled from for this month’s Relaxghan? Well I took it off the shelf this week to help it grow into the Self Love blanket!
Huge hugs to everyone joining me in the Dutch Rose Blanket CAL! As you know from my previous crochet-a-long, “Vibrant Vintage CAL“, I don’t mind if you keep up or not. Just relaxingly crochet, and keep posting progress pics in my Facebook Group along the way.
I’ve been on a huge kick of using all my remnants and scraps and leftovers to create. Though you don’t always get those predictable, pretty, go-to palettes, you do allow yourself to free up space and freshen your yarn stash. So for this project, the second pattern in my free pattern series “Relaxghans”, I’ll be using a little stash of Scheepjes | Merino Soft left over from a project I made for my upcoming book, releasing in May. (Yay!) Merino Soft is super enjoyable to work with as it is just buttery and always looks saturated. It won’t fade, and is very durable. Plus, check out this yummy color range!
