Thinking ahead

The next few weeks will be very busy. I have a lot to do on several fronts, and crochet will probably have to take a back seat. It’s probably the same for you all too.

Progress on the Temperature blanket continues. I have begun to work the edge of each block, just two rounds of matching colour

To refresh your memories, the edging colour varied according to the season:

  • Winter – Parchment
  • Spring – Stone
  • Summer – Camel
  • Autumn – Gold

I’m really pleased with the way it’s looking, but the four strips will need co-ordinating in some way. I have a plan, you’ll see in the next update of this blanket – probably.

I will be sorry to see the end of this project. As you know it has sparked several others, but it has also left me with quite a large stash of leftover yarn.

This is just a small part of the leftover yarn!

I’m planning a project for that, to begin in January. More details coming before long, maybe you will think about joining me in a stashbusting exercise for 2018.

 

November Mix and Match

November is a very busy month here. There is a lot going on, much to do and, frankly, not much time for crochet.

However, I have managed to keep up to date with the temperature blanket (lterally 10 minutes a square) and made a start on the Spirit of November. It’s only a start, especially as we are only halfway through the month.

The colours may result in being very few! The temperature range so far has been minimal. It will be interesting to see what the rest of the month brings – and I don’t feel bad that this blanket will probably go well into December before being finished.

I’m varying the size of the blocks this time, and joining as I go.

It won’t make for such a considered look, but is cutting down on the production time.

I also have a couple of ‘one evening’ projects finished. Here’s a sneaky view of them.

I’ll be doing another after the weekend. It has to be finished before Wednesday!
