The Tale of Lucy and the Electric Rainbow Blanket



There once was a little girl, who was so happy and kind that every person that saw her fell in love with her. She was full of energy and vibrant and her aura shone in all the colours of the rainbow. Very rarely was this little girl in an unpleasant mood, instead she took it upon herself to make everybody else in this world happy as well.
One day a fairy watched the little girl as she went shopping with her mother. So many people turned their heads and looked at the girl, smiling to themselves, that the fairy knew there was something special about her. She decided to watch her a little bit longer. Soon she was also under the spell that the cheerfulness of the girl cast on everybody and she decided to create something that would catch the many vibrant colours of the girl's aura so that every child that enters this world will be surrounded by the happiness and kindness of this special little girl. So she made the Electric Rainbow Blanket....



Well, the girl really exists. She is my little baby Lucy, who is very special indeed. The blanket also really exists and is created (pattern and colour sequence) by the fabulous Carina, who in my opinion has created a blanket so cheerful, every baby should have one.







I made this blanket as a trial, as Carina wanted to see how easy to understand the pattern and instructions are. as a newbie at crochet I found it very easy. It was a real pleasure and joy to work with these fantastic vibrant colours and cheered me up every time i saw them. It took 10 days to complete and Lucy is now the proud owner of a real Electric Rainbow Blanket.



Anybody who is interested in the pattern should contact Carina or else you can buy similar blankets on her Artfire shop. It is really worth it!

What a beautiful little girl. The blanket is great. You did a fantastic job. You said you just started crocheting? You sure can't tell you did a great job.
