I couldn’t resist.
It was just so soft and squishy and lovely!
This is a new range at Spotlight this year from MyBoshi and it is super thick yarn in 50g balls. It is 30% wool and 70% polyacrylic. (I wish this was sponsored and I could say they gave me the yarn, but, alas, I spent my hard earned cash on it – just love to share stuff I love!)
I’ve been dreaming of making another rainbow crochet blanket with lots of white after seeing some gorgeous ones on Pinterest and Instagram so when I saw this yarn I had to have it. I’ve bought 3 balls each of 8 colours – red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, royal blue, navy and purple. Not exactly a rainbow but the extra blues were so lovely I couldn’t resist. I’m actually tempted to go back and add some turquoise too – just because it is my favourite colour right now. There are 27 colours in the range online and my local store had about 20 of them, which I thought was pretty good.
I’m planning to alternate the colours with white so I bought as many balls of white as I bought of the colours.
I’ve chosen a pattern on MyPicot. It has no name there but I think it looks like hearts so I’m calling this my Rainbow Heart Blanket. Here’s the first couple of progress shots from Instagram over the weekend, but look out for more.
