This blanket has been a joy to make. It’s uplifted my spirits at every turn. To begin with I just chose colours and arranged them in a pleasing sequence. Taking five colours at a time I made little stacks of colour, and would willingly have left them like that to drool over for a while …
Frankly, any of the colours in the LONG LIST would have been suitable, but I chose Tomato for joining and border.
The placement came about by accident. I tumbled the squares out onto the bed and they fell roughly with all the red ones in the centre. I think it was a very happy accident.
The edge was brought together with a round of granny stitch followed by a circuit of trebles.
After a couple of attempts at other borders I settled for Crab Stitch – which rounds it off perfectly.
And finally even the last rogue end was woven in.
There is more information about the Medley blanket HERE .
So, next I’m moving on to smaller squares and continuing with the daily squares for #simplythirtysquares
I’m enjoying the colour and the Royal Blue edging.
I began it last night, so this will be my ‘entertainment’ for the next while.
What are you working on? How’s the weather with you? There is so much going on in the world that I need the comfort of an innocuous granny to persuade me that there is a certain amount of normality still around. 🙁
