Yarn
has arrived
sooner than expected,
colours better than expected.
Happy!

I am planning to crochet a couple of lap blankets for our motorhome. I gave my husband the choice of design and colour for his one and he chose a simple pattern in two colours – beige and cream, to blend with the motorhome interior.

Yarn manufacturers don’t sell yarn in simple terms such as beige and cream, oh no, they have to give their yarn fancy names. I struggled to find what I wanted and as I mentioned in a previous post I was a bit wary of the colours shown on screen (shopping in person being a no-go area at the moment) but eventually settled on Camel and Parchment. The Parchment was the one I was most concerned about as it just looked off-white on the screen. The yarn package arrived today – the Parchment is a nice warm creamy beige and the Camel is a lovely honey colour, much warmer and not as stark as I had feared, they go well together and I’m happy.

The only problem now is that, having not expected the yarn to arrive for another week and feeling the need to do some crochet, I have started on a different project. Oh well, it shouldn’t take too long to do and there is no hurry – we’re not planning any motorhome trips any time soon!

A grandmother at where I worked taught me chain and single crochet. After I made the afghan mother planned. On Wednesday, January 13, 2021, By The Wobbly Dum-Dum Tree wrote:
