You feel a bit “blue”? Grab yourself a crochet hook, a ball of soft yarn and start. Creative activities like crocheting or knitting can create a feel-good high. Did you know that? Timing was right for me to finish this project. I am renovating one of the bedrooms and this blue comforter will give the room an instant lift. It was started when my boys were small and those days ( I am talking 20+ years ago…)I purchased most of my yarn at a local yarn store. The yarn I used was Bucilla Softex Win-Knit, 4-ply worsted weight.
I remember I was not sure about making a bedspread entirely in blue. Now that I am finished, I am very pleased with the choice I made. Blue stands for calming, healing, soothing and relaxing. It looks great as a coverlet on a bed with crisp white bed linens.
I joined the squares together with a slip stitch. How this is done you can read here .
A couple of weeks ago I read a nice tutorial about a granny stripe edging. Clear explanation and pictures show you how you can crochet an attractive border. I found the tutorial here .
As you can see, a nice edge or border makes your comforter stand out!
Another project finished and the box with unfinished projects s-l-o-w-l-y gets empty. I have to admit, I am thinking about something new to do….I am particularly interested in a knit-along project of a “cabled afghan” designed by the talented Edie Eckman. It is a gorgeous afghan knit in “soft” redheart yarn. If you are interested all the information is on the Red heart or Creativebug website: here
