The Seaglass Blanket develops

When I bought this eye-pleasing palette of KnitPicks Brava Sport* years ago, I knew it was destined to become something unique and beautiful.  See my full review of this yarn here. I took the photo above in an attempt to capture the striking color combo, but the original inspiration pics definitely do it better.  Some seriously inspiring Better Homes and Gardens pages – I could thumb through the decorating photos section of their website all day long.  And I’m forever drooling over quilts on Instagram – peep these screenshots of a couple Maureen Cracknell creations – heart eyes!! Go check out her IG feed now… she’s a genius!  My middle daughter got a new dress a while back, and well I see a blanket everywhere I look 🙂  That dress inspired Desert Bloom! Teal, coral, olive, mint, lussshhhhh.  My Trellis and Chevron pattern features these colors as well.  It’s not out of my system yet either… So I bring you (drumroll please!) the Seaglass Blanket.

But it’s so much smoother! If you’re looking for great stitch definition, be sure to use a smaller hook because this yarn is flooooppppy 🙂 It’s very loosey-goosey. But this means the hand is so creamy soft it’s a great trade off. How does it compare to some DK brands?
