I’ve completed the third and fourth week of Arizona blanket CAL over the weekend. I’m loving it so much, this blanket is turning out beautifully, and the way the colours work together is just gorgeous. Each week is related to different motives and symbols and the parts of the designer’s blog posts explaining their meaning are very interesting. Combination of different stitches creates such a rich, squishy texture and I’m really glad that the size of the blanket is decent. It’s going to be enough to cover myself (or whoever will be the owner because I haven’t decided yet) comfortably while sitting with a book on the coach and feel warm and cozy.
Judging from the photos of the finished blanket, week 5 is a reversed stitch combination of the third part but I’m taking my time and wait for the next update. I like the slow pace of this project and weekly new posts.
And I’m already looking for the next CAL to join… I think that it’s such a great way to make blankets and throws. It reduces the feeling of being overwhelmed by the size or the complexity of the project – small weekly steps really keep me much more relaxed. So I guess it’s good to get out of one’s comfort zone and try something new!
