It seems pretty surreal to be sitting and writing this post now.
I’ve been working on this blanket for so long it kind of feels like the end of an era.
The project? The Geo Boho blanket, made with Boho Spirit Yarn from Cygnet Yarns – a great UK company, who make some amazing yarns that I was lucky enough to play with.
I came up with an idea for a crochetalong, and luckily the ladies over at Cygnet liked it.
The postman came, and delivered the most amazingly colourful bag of yarn.
But I needed another colour for the design to work, so Cygnet worked their magic, and a new “pure” colour was made.
Now this is the sneaky bit, I got to play with the beautiful squishy white yarn a good few months before anyone else – EVER!
But I was completely sworn to secrecy.
No Social Media
No-one could know….. But I could crochet!
Just look at these beautiful yarns all together!
If you need yarn – Deramores have a yarn pack all ready to purchase with one click:
For me, it was time to get cracking though.
I started with the Azalea – that bright pink was just singing to me – that I knew exactly what design they were going to be!
I adore Front post Treble crochet – can you tell?
Quickly followed by Peacock.
Then sticking with circles- Misty.
Finally – Azalea.
I’d been making the squares pretty much the whole of June, July and August, a couple here and there.
Very therapeutic, and lovely to just pick them up when I could.
Joining them together was a momentous moment.
Then the border.
So, a little run down of the blanket, how it came about, and now the fun bit!

So there we have it – it’s been an absolute blast.
Playing with yarn, sharing this great journey with you all.
