Nearly finished

I have deliberately kept the June blanket a little quiet. However, I'm pleased to say that it is almost finished. I'll be away at the weekend for a family girlie birthday celebration, but all being well June WILL be finished this month

At the moment it's looking very bright and cheery, which is exactly right as a reminder of a summer month. I'm not so sure July will demonstrate the same feeling! However, the month isn't over yet 😉

Five Colour Friday 

Five colour Friday is here again, and I think that I have found my most favourite red! 

These colours go so well together – and would make a beautiful blanket. Simply using a simple repeated block would be stunning

But don’t forget that you can make 120 different colour combinations using just these five colours. Details of this can be found here

As for this delicious yarn – it’s by Deramores

Burnt Orange, Fuchsia, Raspberry, Ruby and Wine

Worth going over to have a look especially as they often have very good offers, and always reward purchases.

Introducing June

But just a glimpse

I'm not impressed with the camera colour, though! That outer circle is GREEN! It looks grey to me

But… after adding another round …

On we go … I wonder what will be next? It's Ravelry page is here

This is fun

It’s surprising what a random choice of colours will produce. The Spirit blankets are all based around the daily temperatures of each month, and in previous months their position has been determined by Theo ‘appearance’. This month I’ve chosen a different way to work. I won’t give you too many details at the moment, but I’m enjoying the process 


Each additional round is presenting a new idea 

And I have a suspicion that I’ll return to this mix and use it in the future 


But that’s all I’ll show you today, and in truth it gives no indication of the finished square. 

It’s what you might call … 

‘A teaser’ !!!

Hope it’s cool enough to crochet where you are. It’s a little warm here. 

I did it!


Yes, April was finished last Thursday evening. Phew! Now I can get on with May, which is a little more colourful.


 I have a few things on the back burner which I’ll share with you over the next weeks but one thing is for certain – I won’t be starting July until June is finished – which will have to wait until after May!
