Although it has grown a tad slowly (squirrel!), I've been working away on my brilliantly colorful Scheepjes *Cotton 8 blanket. (You can read my thoughts about this soft yarn here.)
Remember this one?
Here are some pics of a bit more progress...
I actually changed up a number of colors once I got started--took away some softer pastel peachy colors and added some more purples.
And finally settled on "only" 32 colors! Haha! How do you leave one out? They might feel badly, right? Plus, remember, this yarn is super affordable--good-sized 50g balls for around $2.58/ball in 48 colors. You can get your hooks on it from Wool Warehouse *here. And they ship internationally.
Does this stitch pattern look familiar to you? It might as I've used it before here. It's just so full of texture and works up beautifully in this cotton that really defines the stitches.
I recently got this fortune and though it was fitting for a color-crazed person like myself. Someone once called me a "yarntist". I like that. :)
Watch for a full reveal of this blanket next week! The border is now done and I'm preparing to photograph it. Have a color-filled and yarny week!
