I haven’t been doing too much crochet recently, but while going through my yarn I found 2 skeins of Brown Sheep worsted weight Lanaloft wool in purple iris. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it….Make a baby cocoon for my little Thumper due in December.
I just did it free hand, no pattern. Something I haven’t done in a very long time.
Here is the end result…
My friend Honor bought these buttons in Scotland and gifted them to me a several years ago. I think they are a perfect fit!
This really is a beautiful color way, I wish they were still making it.
I have some other Brown Sheep yarn that I bought at the same time I got this yarn 3 years ago. It is a blue variegated Lambs Pride
wool and mohair blend. It is oh so soft! I’m really lucky that the color way, Blue Skyways
, is still in production, since I really needed another skein to make another cocoon for Thumper. Luckily my local yarn shop carries it and a friend was there on Saturday and called to see if I wanted some. :) So I’ll be starting the other cocoon shortly, and I should have enough for a hat since the Lambs Pride skeins are bigger than the Lanaloft ones.
