After the big failure of Kaidan’s first blanket [that he never received], I had to give it another shot. Once again, I had seen a beautiful pattern from Crochet Caché and decided to go cotton. Well cotton, as previously noticed with my potholders, is not as popular as you would think in dear Atlanta. To my huge surprise, Hobby Lobby has a pretty decent selection. After spending ages in the dedicated aisle, I picked ‘I love this cotton!’ [made in Turkey] in skeins of 100 gr.
I always have a hard time picking the colors. But pretty quickly, I decided for turquoise (#70), bright citrus (#100), white (#6) and dark denim (#306).
I started this much more easier project that I planned to wrap up in a short time. Well, poor Kaidan, the job got interrupted. Again. This time, because of a left arm issue: a crochet-elbow and let’s diagnose it as the beginning of a frozen shoulder [trust me, it was more complicated than that].
After repair, I went back to action and finished Kaidan’s blanket. And don’t ask me why I called it Cotton Field.

- My stitches: back loop DC but I did add a line of Slip Stitch to remove a bit of the elasticity.
