So by now Tajana’s readers will have seen what I crafted for our gift exchange, I’ll just do a short post to share what I made for anyone not familiar with her page, if you see HERE you will see my inspiration for her blanket, the thing that made me smile is some of my followers assumed I knitted her gift when in reality I crocheted her present …which in hindsight was a little brave of me as Tajana is a renowned crochet artist
The pattern is by Lucy at Attic 24 but I tried to give it a gentle twist by reversing the pattern to give two complementary halves, the shades of brown are meant to represent the various shades of the freshly ploughed fields during all weathers and lights, and the blue the vast expanse of sky due to the flat landscape, the two shades of green in the border are the newly spouting leaves and crops growing in the fields, whereas the grey are the rain clouds …I sure hope you can see where I’m going with this and I’m not in need if respite care at ‘The Workplace’
Here is a close up of the offending 18 stitches in a completely different yarn that caused me to take to coffee and cake at Beloveds instance !!
So there you have it my daily walk with K9 represented in a blanket
