two willows

It's quiet here on the blog again, I want to blog but I can't seem to find any words lately. I'm trying, I don't know what it is that's making it so hard. I am instagramming a lot, so you can always find me sharing stuff there when it gets quiet here.

I've got two Willow blankets to share today! I made one for each of my girls. Willow is such a pretty blanket, it's easy to fall in love with.

They were both made using Bernat Waverly yarns, the pink is called fresh flower (I love the Waverly names!), it's such a soft pink.

As soon as I finished with the pink one, my other daughter wanted one too and she asked for green. Again, I used Bernat Waverly yarns, the green is called celadon and the yellow is butter.

When I was making the pink willow, I thought that a band on the blanket might look good so I knew I was going to give it a try on the next one. I'm glad I went for it because I love that yellow band!

I'm really happy with these two Willow blankets!

  7. Celadon is my #1, all-time favourite colour ever. I think I will have to pick up some of this yarn and make something just for myself so I can have it around all the time!
