wip: wednesday

 Hello there, I hope your week is going well.
I've started a new crochet project and thought I'd share it here!
 So it started off like this:  three balls of soft yarn and a new tote.  I knew I wanted to make a baby blanket to giveaway.
So I found this lovely pattern HERE and decided to go with it ............

 We went camping over last weekend, so this is when the blanket started.  It was perfect for the rainy days that we had ☺  And I actually accomplished quite a bit.
 I'm going with a bit of 'randomness' with a few wider stripes and will mix up the colours a little, rather than do them in order.
 This yarn in 8ply is super soft and lovely to work with.  I'm using a 4.5 crochet hook.
 And the texture is lovely too ☺  It's quite similar to my previous blanket, but this stitch creates more of a ridge.
So it's going along quite nicely ...... now that we are having cooler Autumn days, I'm sure I will be getting cozy by my fire with crochet and tea.  Sounds perfect to me ☺

Thanks for popping by and I'll share some more soon ♥
