It’s been a funny old month so far. I won’t go into details, but it didn’t start the way we expected. Never mind! Things can only improve.
Crochet has taken a back seat. I decided to make the Spirit of September blanket wait until next month, but the colours called to me as I continued with the Temperature Blanket. Consequently I hooked a few squares, but this collage won’t give much away at all
Making them has helped me decide on the sequence and layout, so that was a good thing. I will also need to order more yarn! I’m holding out for a while, though, as I have enough to finish my main current work in progress and may not be around to take delivery. (There’s currently 30% off with code YARN30 – so worth investigating if you are in need of some)
If you have been following along on Instagram you will o doubt have seen the odd Square or two
And maybe even this progress shot
It’s still progressing! I want it finished by mid October at the latest. More updates will follow.
I would not have chosen these colours, but I’m pleased with the result
It’s a scary feeling to be unable to control colours! Just for a change I have made this blanket using the colours of each day during August – and reversed some of them to make enough blocks.
I finished the border, using the colours representing the most frequent temperatures of the month as contrast to the Summer joining colour for the Temperature Blanket, which was Camel. (I’ll be posting an update on that blanket tomorrow.) I have to admit that if I had chosen to work with these colours on another project I wouldn’t have considered Camel to join, but it ‘sort of’ works!
The next blanket, Spirit of September, really will have to wait, possibly even until into October. I already know that I need more yarn in certain colours, but first I have other priorities including a blanket edged with white. The yarn for this blanket was all purchased from Deramores. Details of the square I’ve used can be found here.
I’ll tell you more another day.
Just disappearing for the weekend this time. I’m off to work with a friend using fabric, threads and, of course, yarn! We will also be working on her new website.
I’m taking some of my hand dyed fabrics and threads, and also some crochet. This will come back finished
and I will also be working on this for a time
Aren’t they glorious colours? Cygnet yarns again- Boho Spirit in Folk. The first one is the same yarn but the Chic colourway
Have a great weekend- whatever you are doing
I ran out of time to finish my stress buster and had no room for it in my suitcase. However, this grew magically while I spent some time with our daughter
I have written elsewhere about our little trip, but progress on the above was so good that I have started this while I consider the border
Both are Cygnet Yarns Boho. Chic is the first colourway and Folk the second. Production will slow down for a while as time will be short for several days but the trip did me so much good and I feel more rested than I have for a very long time.
You may have glimpsed this on Instagram. It will hopefully be finished in a day or so. A small project to carry around that is larger than granny squares
I’m trying out a ‘new to me’ yarn. Scheepjes Colour Crafter. Have you used it? I like it. Sadly I can only buy it via the Internet.
What are you working on? I’d love to see. Leave a link in the comments if you have blogged about it.
