Last Sunday I told you about the colours and yarn I will be using for my next project. This week I am sharing some photos of my bright beach huts. The weather in England has been amazingly sunny for this time of the year, so I have enjoyed my walks home from work lately, especially the ones that have allowed me to crochet while I walk.
Sidekick Jenny helped me to create the first 6 parts of the blanket. They don’t look like much here…
…but after filling in the gaps, they are starting to look more like beach huts and less like a maths-experiment-gone-wrong.
I love the colours I have chosen (you can read more about that HERE) and after a little bit of initial hesitation about the design I am now totally in love with how the blanket is shaping up.
The Colour Crafter is an absolute joy to work with and I cannot wait to work on this blanket at the end of each day. It feels so good to finally be creating something again. I’ve progressed quite a bit since I took these photos, but you will have to wait until next week to see what I’ve been up to. And while you wait, have a little think about names…
You can find Colour Crafter on Scheepjeswol.com (NL) and Wool Warehouse (Internationally).
If you already have some of the yarn and you’ve made something with it, please share it on Instagram using #Scheepjes #Colourcrafter.

It is the Summer in Swanage Blanket.
Summer in Swanage Blanket Pattern
BW. Jenny :)
Where, or when, can I find the pattern?
It will be posted up when the project is complete, Carol. Watch the blog for more updates :)
Dedri, you are wonderful! I cannot stay from your page. I ALWAYS come away happier and smiling. Thank you for sharing.
I must admit … still looks like a math problem gone wrong … but I know: watch this space!
They SO look like summer… I can hardly wait to see the finished blanket!
Gorgeous, really looking forward to see how it progresses. How about ‘Oh we do like to be beside the seaside’ for a name? It was all I could think once I saw the beach huts =)
Looking fabulous Dedri – I can’t wait till you share the pattern that you are creating- you said to think of names but you have already come up with a great one “Bright Beach Huts”… that is perfect.
You are adorable. Every time I go on one of your pages, and see the picture of you I just smile. I can tell by the shine in your eyes that your smile comes from your heart. I think if I asked your husband, he would say you can be a bit of a rascal sometimes! God bless you. Thank you for all the joyous hours of crocheting I’ve enjoyed using your patterns.
Love from California!

Thank you for this lovely comment. I can be quite a rascal, yes!

When I looked at your beach huts with their little tails, I thought I saw little colorful mice. You could adapt the pattern with slightly rounded noses and added eyes for a child’s rug, etc. I read and save every newsletter I get from you and usually find something to add to my thumb drive for saved patterns!!!
Dedri Uys says
That’s a great idea, Barbara, and I would love to see it if you did do that!

I keep thinking about a name for your wonderful seaside beach huts I am not very good at this sort of thing but as Scheppjes means Little Boats something to do with Boats and Beach Huts or Swanage as I wonder if you got your inspiration there? It’s very English of course the Beach Hut and its brilliant and yes very different from Sophie
Dedri Uys says
Maggie, that’s a great suggestion. The beach huts were actually inspired by the beach huts in Mossel Bay (South Africa), but Swanage did help :)
i am loving your beach huts, will there be a pattern? i would love that. thanks
Hi Martha! Watch this space ;)
