Have you noticed any regularity in the choice of yarn color for the first spring project? It was always white for me, no matter what project I’m planning. But last time, I noticed that yellow is my new addiction. Lack of vitamin “sun” ?! ☀️🤗 If you are on the same page with me and looking for a fun weekend project, let me introduce…
Strawberry Delight Set
Have you ever longed for those deliciously warm summer days, when nothing seems sweeter than that fresh-picked strawberry that just brought a huge grin to your face? Now you can bring that feeling of sunshine, happy babies, family picnics, pretty flowers, and of course—strawberry-induced joy—to every day with the Strawberry Delight Blanket. Lovingly designed with eye-popping 3D flowers and “garnished” with a beautiful strawberry with leaves pin, this blanket would be perfect for a summer-born baby or just anyone who deserves more sunshine in their life!
IMAGINE THIS: Crochet just first 2-3 pattern repeats for a fun and unusual Scarf. Crochet it with cotton thread to turn it into eye-catching and delicate choker necklace or skinny scarf. Opt for wool or mohair yarn to make a neckwarmer, or even a cowl suitable for colder weather.

One of thousand reasons why I adore craft community and so blessed to be a part of it! ⠀
Usually I buy more than enough yarn for any project, but I did not expected that Kristin will ask for pretty boxy sweater so I run out of a skein – one… single skein of CoBaSi in natural color 003 from dye lot #17. I did not see any problem and ordered couple skeins from same Little Knits yarn store. But oh my, the skeins from lot #21 looked too different and so pinkish than my original. ⠀ ⠀
I tried to find yarn from the same lot, but no luck. So, I found and ordered yarn from several places: Webs, Ravelry, eBay, Jimmy Beans Wool with a hope that at least one of them will match. Can you the differences? ⠀
And… while waiting my yarn orders, I got a note from Linda Lynn (Abundant Yarn Online, www.abundant-yarn.com), that she has 2 partial leftover skeins from dye lot 17, totaling 65 grams, that she would be happy to send me! YAY! So, I was able to finish Kristin’s sweater right before Christmas! Oh, and Linda refused to charge me for yarn, just shipping costs. ⠀
And, then ladies from LittleKnits.com found two skeins from the same dye lot 17 too! ⠀
Thank you so much dear ladies from me and my Kristin!!! You are the best!!!😍😍😍 ⠀ ⠀

… It’s that moment when your 18 years old (not a big fan of handmade) daughter asked for a sweater—something very basic and no pink 💙🤓
⠀ ⠀ ⠀
It was the last and most lovely project of 2019, and the first one made with CoBaSi (I posted about this yarn few posts below). Not to mention that I am on half way with a sweater for myself in the same style. I changed some details and mine is going to be in teal color—stay tuned!
