I had no intention of not posting for so long, but sometimes Life gets in the way, and it’s a question of just running with it.
Flu turned to Bronchitis and then I was forced to go on a cruise to recover! Crochet took a little backseat but I did manage at least one square a day. Here are a few pictures of work in progress and more. Some are finished, but they are for another day.
Now I have some catching up! I also need some more yarn, a big project is about to be started, so I’m off to take advantage of some special offers.
Parchment, Raspberry, Storm Blue, Sage and Apricot are the colours for this week. This is a very pretty combination
In truth the Spirit of April seems never ending! It will be finished, but I’ve started the Spirit of May to give a little light relief.
This will be smaller so quicker to finish.
Now it’s back to the April edition
I’ve managed to finish another two sets of 24 this week
Spirit of April
Spirit of April
I’m hoping that the Spirit of April will be finished before June!
It’s always interesting to make a collage, too. So many ideas for blankets… so little time…
I’ve just had a week of visual delights! Another trip to Norway is something we have been promising for a very long time. We finally made it!
I’ll probably share a few pictures from time to time – but today I’m catching up on a little rest and emails. They certainly fill the inbox while away.
You’ll be pleased to know that I managed to find some yarn shops – in Stavanger and Bergen. There is even one on Bergen Railway station!
I’ll catch you up with progress and more in a few days. In the meantime – enjoy the above.
Yes, the Spirit blanket!
This week I have, so far, managed to finish two more sets of 24 using this subtle shade of orange!
I think I have 10 more combinations (most without the orange) to do, but I may have miscounted.
Next week will see no progress on this, but more about that another day.
Yes, it’s May, and a new section of the temperature blanket to be started. I wonder what surprises that will bring? April is finished apart from the final joining.
Twenty one colours! No wonder the Spirit of April is still in progress 😉
