Sky Blanket 2016: July Update

This month started out with a rainbow. We needed it, after the miserable month we had in June. I take it as a sign of better things to come, a more vibrant, a brighter future. Fingers crossed.

Sky Blanket 2016: July Update

Here is a snapshot of the July skies that were the inspiration behind this month's crochet. There was a visit to London and then there was the start of the summer holidays to celebrate.


The inspiration behind my crochet

I'm doing all crocheting this month with a hook size 5, unless I mention otherwise. Here is my crocheting pattern for July from top to bottom if you fancy crocheting along. Hope you do, it's incredibly therapeutic.
