It has been quite a while since my last post.
I'm so very fortunate to have 3 grandsons and to be able to spend time with them. I am cherishing every moment. Austin is now 4 years old, Simon is now 5 months old, and Sawyer is now 2 months old.
I surf Pinterest every morning over a pot of coffee and have come across quite a few things I would like to make. One of them is a called Sophie's Universe. Sophie's Universe is a continuous square blanket. It was designed by Dedri Uys of Look at what I made. I found her at www.lookatwhatimade.net. She offers it as free pattern downloads on her blog. Pinterest is full of different coloured Sophie's Universe blankets. Colour really does make a difference in what stitches are highlighted or jump out at you when you look at it.
This is my version of Sophie's Universe entitled "Poppies by the Sea". I have finished Part 4.
I love seeing the progression of my work in photos. You can really see how a piece evolves this way.
There are 20 Parts to this pattern. Today we are going to look at Part 1, which consists of Rounds 1-8. Below are my photos of "Poppies by the Sea".
I combined various Size 4 yarns to get the "Poppies by the Sea"colour palette I wanted to achieve. They are:
Caron Cakes - shades of aquas, teals and turquoise cut and separated into their 5 different shades.
Vanna's Choice - white, raspberry, scarlet, cranberry, purple, and aqua
Patons Decor - Frond
Patons Canadiana - Teal Heather
Tomorrow I will be posting Part 2.
Have fun creating!
