Blanket with shell stitches

Hi there!
We have had a lot of sickness in the house lately. When being a family of five the viruses kind of just go round and round and round... But in all this mess I have managed to squeeze in some hooking, believe it or not. I've started a blanket. I am not sure of what to call it - a shell blanket? Inspired by The Garden Bell's Circus Parade, that I first saw on Mönsterarkivet. But her pattern was kind of confusing to me plus she is a lefty, maybe that was why I didn't really get it. And then I have been searching for a similar stitch in my crochet books, on other blogs and in the end, after trying out shells and clusters and grannies and some other home invented techniques I finally decided to go with the shell stitching technique.

Simple and very pretty. I am enjoying every moment of it. And I love how the colours mix and match as I go.

Play dooh session is about to start and little girl is demanding my attention. Got to go, but see you soon.

  1. Playdough is THE business here too.... Jag försökte kopiera HTML koden och klistra in, men fattar inte riktigt hur det ska funka. Ska fråga min tech support när han kommer hem... Träden ska jag absolut ha, tack för länken!!! Och snacka om virus och förkylningar, tror att sommaren är slut nu för snoriga näsor brukar ju som sagt vara en bra indication... Vill inte att det ska bli höst ännu, det har ju knappt varit nån sommar ännu. Iallafall ingen skön sommar när det har varit sådär lagom varmt och soligt. Antingen har det varit ganska kallt, eller så har det varit jättehög luftfuktighet och värme så man har varit tvungen att stanna inomhus iallafall. Vädret har varit jättekonstigt! Nåväl, vad fint du virkar. Har du packat upp symaskinen än???
