Sophie’s Universe Blanket

It finally happened. After a few years after the release I have the desire to make the Sophie’s Universe Blanket.

I am sorta a fan of big projects. I like the projects I can make in separate pieces and sew together. This is not one of those big projects.

Its does take a lot of yarn and time. Which I have both of.

I took some time to choose my colors. I really love one of the sample blankets on Dedri Uys’s website  ( link opens a new window). Which is her first photo on her ravelry page. The turquoise is so dominant . It really catches the eye. ( its one of my favorite colors).

I changed out the canary for Caron’s Cream, but basically kept the rest in the same color family. I think I will be changing a few colors as I go . I want to make this a mostly purple blanket. Another color that sticks out to me are the pinks. I am not a fan of pink. So I want to work in the purples in the big areas and switch them with the pinks for the smaller areas.

Here is my Sophie’s journey so far…
