Nothing happier than the Happy Throw!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Saturday from me to you, wherever you may be around the world!

I was pondering what I should post this week and realised it was about time to share one of my favourite blankets to date which I finished in May.

Its called the Happy throw and let me tell you, you cannot NOT be happy when you’ve got a happy throw 😀

It’s literally impossible. Just look at those rippling waves of colour!

They just go on forever… 

I saw this blanket on the lovely and talented Alex’s instagram page. I couldn’t get over her amazing colour choices & that ripply goodness.

Rather than literally copy her ridiculously good looking blanket, I chose to stashbust again… (I see a common theme running through this blog already, how about you?)

First day… Lipstick pink, Rosebud and Almond!

Adding colours spontaneously as I went

This was such a great pattern to try. Very repetitive like a typical, zen like ripple blanket, this pattern is by Mamachee. It is definitely worth the small price for pure happiness! If you’d like to make your own, you can find the pattern here via this link to etsy.

Building little ridges!

I decided to make a lapghan sized blanket, the perfect size for snuggling on the couch.

African Violet 😍

I didn’t enjoy darning in those dreaded ends 😒

At one point I played yarn chicken and lost! Luckily I found some more of the same yarn stashed away…

This is yet another blanket that I made using my Bendigo woolen mills stash (its actually ridiculous how many blankets I seem to be able to get from this one stash) You can see my Rainbow Chevron & My Crochet Mood blanket 2015 here, both blankets use these beautiful colours.

Home made yarn pegs I made to keep track of the stash

I chose the colour order based on feeling and which I thought were most visually pleasing together as I went along… much like my Mood blanket!

I gifted this blanket to my sister in May as a surprise present.

Pretty sure she liked it 😉

Unlike some older projects, I made sure I took the time to take roughly 5000 different photos 😂

If the Happy Throw made you happy today… please let me know 😀

Until next time…
