Atlanticus Prelude

Atlanticus Prelude

Beautiful people in crochet land……..

I am so very excited to bring you Atlanticus, The Prelude.
This will contain all special stitches, abbreviations, yarn colours, hints, tips and everything that will be used for the duration of the CAL. Please take the time to read through this carefully and keep it somewhere that you can refer back to when the CAL commences. The creation of this blanket has been such an amazing journey for me and I am so excited for all of you to begin on your own magical journey.

“Atlanticus and Lilliana
They were young,
They were wild
And so indelibly free.
The sand was earth’s bosom
And her milk the sea.
They danced to music others
could not hear.
They dined on their triumphs
And relinquished their fear.
The salt left a memory
She could taste on his skin,
While his tongue etched a story
They were bound to begin.
For their love was boundless,
Without judgement or sin;
From now on there was no battle
They could not win.”

Sending you all love, light and dreams of the beach xxx
