Hooray! One blanket is off the needles!
Its based on the free pattern: Western Hills – The Blanket by Julia Stanfield. Its knitted in a pale blue and mint green, and as I was knitting it, I felt it needed a little pop of colour. Hence the crochet border and fish in orange.
It also made me remember one of my past knits:
The fish motif is from ‘Kitty Placemat’ in ‘Kitty Knits: Projects for Cats and their People’ by Donna Druchunas.
I do like goldfish, they make me smile…
Anyhow, short post today as its been a bit hectic with work and family life at the moment.
