St Ives Blanket


Yah! Another blanket finished. The colours in this blanket reminded me of the sea in and around St Ives, all blues and greens with some white for the foam on top of the waves. Of course I shall be taking this on my camping trips this year to wrap up and sit outside when the sun goes down, but I hope its going to be that hot that I dont need it ( a girl can dream!!). A good thing about blogging is that it encourages me to finish off projects that I start, as in the past I was queen of the "started, but not finished" project. Most of the wool in this blanket came from my Mums stash (she hasn't knitted anything in the last 30 years or so!!) so apart from 2 balls of dk, its virtually a freebie!!

My crochet is not up to that standard yet but I love the idea of a cosy blanket to keep warm when the sun goes down.

That is so beautiful, I am very envious! You must be so proud of it. I love St Ives too, you've captured the blue sea perfectly. I'm longing to go there now!

I thought of Cornishware when I saw your blanket. It's gorgeous. May you have many warm evenings wrapped up in it, after long sunny days of course!
Tilly is going to stay with us as long as G copes ok as he has been slightly allergic to her.

That is just beautiful! And such glorious colours! If you wear it outside while camping you will have queues of people wanting to buy it!

Reminds of the sea on a wonderful sunny day with a stiff breeze, looking down from the top of a cliff. Ah, lovely!

That is a wonderful blanket - great colours. I really fancy making one similar for evenings on the beach this year - I just wish I had a stash to raid!!
