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…
The sample blanket I am following (colors only) is Dedri’s small . I am using worsted weight yarn . Red Heart Yarn, Studio Stitches by Nicole and Caron one pound.
Colors are as follows:
Canary Cream ( Caron) light pink baby pink ( Studio Stitches by Nicole) fuchsia Shocking Pink( Red Heart) Pink Deep Pink ( Studio Stitches by Nicole) Moors Medium Purple ( Red Heart) Light Green Honey Dew ( Red Heart) Turquoise Turqua (Red Heart) Light Turquoise Mint (Red Heart) Violet Light Purple ( Studio Stitches by Nicole) Heath Dark Orchid ( Red Heart ) Light Purple Pale Plum ( Red Heart)
This is also part of my stash slim down for A year of Projects ( on ravelry ) and a quarterly big project for the same group.
