Cosy Cal based on Attic 24 Part 5 Scandinavian style

Cosy cal on a frosty morning
7th December  

The Lucy blanket is growing and looking good.  It's keeping my lap warm as I crochet and I am still finding it therapeutic.  Have you seen Lucy's?  She has completed all 90 stripes and it is looking gorgeous, her colours really are stunning, I am very tempted to make another in her colour choice too...

This week the colours are:

121 & 122  Parchment
123 &124   Stone
125 &126   White
127 & 128  Silver
129 & 130  Stone
Week 5 colours of the Cosy Cal Scandinavian style
131 & 132  White
133 & 134  Parchment   
135 &136   Silver
137 & 138  Cream
139 &140   Stone
141 &142   Cream
143 & 144  Silver
145 & 146  Stone
147 & 148  Parchment

The blanket is really a great size already and now covers the coffee table and then some...

Second Sunday in Advent,
so two candles are lit

I love the stripes
in black & white too

I just loved the frosted blades of grass
and dashed out to photograph with the blanket

I have set myself a challenge of taking a photo a day in December and thought you may like to see the first weeks efforts! Not only is the challenge to take a photo a day, but that everything should be home crafted and not commercialised, fingers crossed I manage it.  To follow this on a daily basis, head over to my Facebook page:
