Distractions

I have a couple large projects I should be working on....

... but I don't want to. So thank goodness for friends like Samantha, who provide distractions in the form of a new design commission.

She wanted to make one of those mermaid blanket/bags that have been flashing all over the internets, and while she can crochet way better than me, she's not fond of it. And none of the knit versions were tickling her fancy.

So we had a little chat and I've been put to work designing a pattern for her. And the best way to design is to knit one
I'm using the leftover Bernat Alpaca from Nora's Berton Bear and when finished it will likely be going to Nora as well... and being chunky, it shouldn't take too long... which is good, I really do need to get back to that damn sweater...

It's a lovely start. Can't wait to see where your distraction takes you (and us!).

Mermaid blanket/bag? For babies? I'm confused but it looks lovely-whatever it will be.
