Fall in love…

Gooooood morniiiiiiing 🙂

Let me begin this happy week by presenting you “fall” in love in all its glory. Yes, it is done and I am very satisified with how it turned out…

fall_in_love1

I simply fall in love with “fall” in love 🙂

fall_in_love2

I began this blanket at the beginning of this year…You can read its first post here. This blanket was made as a gift for my lovely cousin Nathalie known as Nato 🙂 And this is, I think, my fastest blanket…one little month and it was done 🙂

fall_in_love3

The blanket is a very good size couch blanket and it is crocheted with a 4mm crochet hook and the wonderful Nako Vizon a 100% acrylic yarn…

You can find the pattern of the squares here…They are simple classic squares joined as-I-go using the wonderful pattern of Lucy that you can read all about here…

As for the edging, I made a very simple one: 2 rounds of “arcade” (1sc, 3ch, 1sc) all around the blanket and a last round made of 2sc, 3ch, 2sc in every “arcade”…so I don’t know if it is called “picot” or no…it is just 2sc, 3ch, 2sc in each “arcade” and I really don’t know how I did to make them look so pointy 😉

I really really enjoyed crocheting this blanket…

And those warm colors are so my kind of color’s “pallette”

Nato and Bachir…I hope that you’ll enjoy this blanket, that it will keeps you warm and cosy during the cold days of winter… and that it will be a part of your loving home during the coming years of your life together 🙂

Hello!

How was your weekend?

Mine was good …at home…

fall_in_love_8_rows1

I’ve made some progress with “fall” in love…8 rows already…

I always make a square with each color…without finishing the last joining round…and then I lay them all on the floor to choose the place of each color…

fall_in_love_8_rows2

…writing the colors on a piece of paper…(very bad memory 🙂 )

fall_in_love_8_rows3

I love how this blanket is turning out…

and while I was in my own paradise…the girls were coloring TOGETHER…yes together … this don’t happen everyday 😉 and it always ends with a fight 🙂
