Five Colour Friday

I really enjoyed working with these colours. They remind me of spring – but also have an autumnal feel.

Five colours will enable 120 different blocks to be made if you don’t want to make them all the same. This handy list will help you to do this.

They are pretty striking as a single colourway too

And so another begins…

Another month – another Spirit blanket. Yes, I’ve started the one for October.

I haven’t done much so far – other things keep getting in the way. However, it feels amazing to be on the penultimate Spirit blanket. I didn’t expect to get this far. Next month will see the end of this project (apart from all the finishing off, that is) but it has been inspirational in so many ways that I may have to continue in some shape or form.

Tomorrow evening I’m meeting with a few friends for the first of a series of yarny socials. I’m looking forward to that. I wonder how much chatting there will be? And how much crochet……..?

Done

The Spirit of September blanket is now complete.

This one is only small, 7 blocks by 7 blocks. It’s good to see it stacked alongside its fellow months. Now to make a start on October – but as the month hasn’t yet ended I have no idea the final colours it will contain.

The edging is very simple. In fact, none of these blankets are anything but simple! It’s the idea that is important – not the skills involved.

Just when you think…

Oh the excitement of working on the last block! Joining comes next, so surely it will soon be finished?

And then …

Oops! I’ve forgotten a whole colour sequence!

Five Colour Friday

It’s been a while since the last Five Colour Friday. This wasn’t intentional, but travels made it a little difficult to post. Make sure you read on if you like a bargain.

Sometimes a gentle and quiet colour-scheme is all that’s needed.

Five colours for Five Colour Friday!

Make a cushion – a blanket – even a Poncho!

The more Grannies you make, the better the effect.

Slowly does it

I know that the sight of this will upset some of you. The ‘dreaded ends’. However, I find this quite inspiring, and those ends suggest a new blanket to me. Weaving in those ends is a very important part of the creative process to me, and I look forward to it.

Slowly each block is revealed. I find the process meditative and soothing. I prefer to do it in silence, but in this home ……. 🤣

How long will it take? Who cares? Little by little….

Enjoy your day.
