This is my cherry blossom Sophie now. I love her so much. And today I finally ordered the Sophie’s Universe book. I’m so excited! And pretty exhausted. Yesterday I asked woolwarehouse if they would get the book. And they replied that they would the next day and there would be 120 signed copies. So I have been watching their site like a hawk all day. Finally at 3 pm it was ready! I ordered with shaking hands. LOL I’m such a nerd. But this pattern and all that it stands for means so much to me! I can’t wait to hold the book and I’m not going to start the next part before it’s here.
This is Dedri’s blog post about the book:
Here’s Sophie up to part 6. I really love this project and it’s still my number one favorite pattern 🌸
I just couldn’t help myself when I came across this mini CAL from Sue Pinner. I had this yarn in my stash from a virus shawl I did earlier. It’s perfect for the project. I really like how it’s coming along.
You can find the two first parts here:
The next part will be out tomorrow.
My scrap blanket is done. I decided that it’s for my little new car. I really love this pattern. And the way the black rounds make the other colors pop is just amazing. Thank you Ame Warren for being my inspiration and for being my friend!
I had a lot of leftovers from my carousel. My coworker just loved the colors of the blanket when I brought it to work. So she asked for a hat in the lovely batik yarn. Of course I made her one. My daughter saw it and tried it on and of course she wanted one too. I made her one from a cotton/acrylic blend. The yarn is so soft and she chose the colors.

I promised you a picture of my finished carousel blanket. It’s been so gray outside lately but today the sun is out. So here she is in all her glory. I loved this project.
Some of you remember my post about my top 10 projects. Some might have changed a bit but number 1 is still Sophie. For a long long time I have wanted to make a single color Sophie. My problem was that I only liked it in white. And with a 5 year old and a huge dog white is not an option. But then I saw one in pink. I remembered this beautiful pale pink color from my lily pond blanket. And that was it I just couldn’t wait any longer. I ordered a bunch of style craft special dk in pale rose. I had one skein in the house already so I started yesterday. This is part 1 and I love it.
