Hello there, I hope you had a good weekend, I know it was Mother's Day on Sunday in some parts of the world so I hope all you Mom's had a great day.
Last week I started a new crochet throw, I was looking for a pattern which used Aran as I'd bought some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran at a bargain price of £2 a ball, there was only one ball of each colour but I knew I'd find a project to use it on.
I found this pattern in Mollie Makes issue 2, it can also be found in The Gentle Art of Knitting by Jane Brocket. It's a colourful, vintage style throw, I did have to buy the cream but this was just what I was looking for.
I'm using a 5mm hook, it grows so quickly using Aran and I'm loving the Debbie Bliss so soft and luxurious.
I'm about half way through the 60 squares now so hopefully I'll have it finished by next week so I'll be back then with all the colours I've used then.
I'm thinking of adding a border, what do you think or shall I leave it as it is, I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.
Thanks for looking, have a great week and I'll be back soon.
