While looking around and blanket designs and yarns for the back of the “big” project, which I plan to knit as squares and join to make a patch design, I have spotted a few things that have given me ideas.
Whilst I as still planning the design and wondering whether to go with a whole blanket/afghan already designed by someone else or pick and mix and match squares, I had spied a yarn I liked.
Should have to a pre knit pic but didn’t think about it at the time! Anyway it Rico creative cotton. I wanted to try it as I think across things I have knitted in the past those with cotton have been my favourites. The other great thing about it is there is a massive (well comparatively) range of colours.
I bought just one ball and set about doing a couple of squares from Debbie Abraham’s squares books. I am pleased with the result and I think I will definitely use this yarn in the project, if not for all of it.
The colour is not right in the pictures, it is actually purple!
