Please note the absence of any Lopi Lite and the fabulous color! I was excited to discover yesterday that I had in my possession the required crochet hook for the Babette Blanket. I was certain that this project would have to wait until I ran to the store – what joy, I could jump right in!
You can see that I started with the four round squares. Luckily, I didn’t get too far before I had the idea to work my way from the inside out, following the pattern schematic and seaming the sections as I proceed. This blanket consists of different size squares that are all seamed together into larger rectangular sections which are then seamed together log cabin style to complete the blanket. Although I have made color substitutions, I am following the color chart. I think it will be less overwhelming and confusing to seam it as I go along rather than trying to keep track of all of these squares at the end of the project when it comes time to put it together. So I have started a 12 round center square.
Thank you for your input regarding the Bee Shawl/Lotus Blossom Shawl dilemma. I love the Lotus Blossom, but could do without those bobbles hanging from the bottom edge. I wonder how it would look to simply leave them out? Would I replace them with something else? I am going to poke around on Ravelry to see if anyone else has made modifications.
