If this blanket looks vaguely familiar to you that's probably because
you're a Purl Soho fan and saw this gorgeous baby blanket in their
newsletter a couple of weeks ago. I decided to have a go reinterpreting
their knitting pattern into crochet.... and this is the result.
I crocheted it as one piece, crocheting in the ends as I changed colours,
so there's a mottly peek of dischordant colour every so often which I quite
like... it breaks up the starkness of it somehow.
It was intended to be a baby blanket but I'm not so sure now. The greys
turned out a lot darker and sombre-looking than I thought they would. I'm
not very good at doing things for boys... I always seem to hit the wrong
note I think.
I have showed it to a friend (a mother of boys) and she said her boys are
still using their baby blankets when they watch tv and they'd much prefer
these manly tones to what they have... so that was comforting ;)
I am working on something else to go with the blanket which I hope will
be more 'baby'. It's not finished yet, but if you're curious I'm guessing I'll
be posting it in a couple of days.
