Right but not quite.

The temperature blanket is progressing, but not as fast as I would have liked due to a variety of unavoidable circumstances. I’ve mentioned before how handy it is to be able to crochet alongside invalids’ bedsides etc, but it really does help if you are prepared!

The next square was easy, only two colours for the first four rounds, so I grabbed them and tucked them into my bag with a hook. In truth my heart wasn’t really in the crochet, but it kept me occupied.

Daylight, a couple of days late, however, revealed that I’d made an error in bad light, picking up Cypress instead of Sage!

I have to admit that I almost cried when I realised. Such an unimportant mistake, really, but it was just a step too far it seemed. As you can see, the correct square has now been completed, and finished with … Cypress!

As for the original – it’s been converted.

It’s now another square for the charity blanket.

Gone!

February is now well established. The freshness of the New Year is over and we are thankfully able to look forward to spring. It hasn’t been a springlike weekend here, though, with unwarranted snow, something that is very rare here.

This was the view from what I euphemistically call my ‘workroom’ on Friday. Saturday’s view was similar but at least the sky was bright and blue.

New this year, this little blue gem was a pleasure to behold, but his purple neighbours disappeared. They are visible again this morning as the last of the snow vanishes. It arrived on Friday and Saturday, stayed still on a beautiful Sunday and was almost all washed away by drizzle overnight. I hope you are all enjoying safe weather. Continue reading “Gone!”

The end!

There is tremendous satisfaction when something comes to an end … and it’s on time!

Do you remember the above? It’s the first Temperature Blanket I made which covered the seasons from December 2016 to the end of November 2017. Each season was edged with a different colour of Stylecraft Special DK, namely Parchment for winter, Stone for spring , Camel, the summer colour and Gold for autumn. Continue reading “The end!”
