Watching the colours change

IMG_5105

I find it very difficult to photograph the shape of the ‘in progress’ c2c. Folding it helps, and the above means that you can see the work in progress – and the starting corner. I always find it interesting to see how colours mix and match – and change according to the one that precedes or follows. I’m almost at the point where I have to decide whether to keep going and make the square larger – or only extend in one direction. The decision will probably come tomorrow.

The start of another

Deciding on colours for a blanket for a man is not easy!  I hope you will like my choices as this blanket progresses. It won’t be the same size as the last one and will be crocheted alongside another project or two so that my days are filled with a good mix of colour.

This began with the Mocha and Walnut which were part of the Sunflower blanket. I used as little as possible of these colours in that, so there is a decent amount left. Like the Sunflower blanket, all yarn will be Stylecraft Special DK because that is available in my local shop and I like to support small business. If I need another ball of anything I can walk there within 20 minutes – so it’s a healthy reason for choosing this yarn too 😉

More details about this when I  do a few more rows.

I’ve also been tackling something that is new to me. I have made many 3D flowers. I even made some on TV during a demonstration, but I have never tackled one with a hook. Well, guess what!

I can’t share much more with you yet, but watch this space. Yesterday’s results were interesting. One success and one failure. The latter was my fault – I chose the wrong yarn. In so doing I discovered something rather special, though, so when I’ve finished experimenting I’ll share more with you.

Have a great ‘hooky’ day everyone. It’s cool and grey here, so I’d better keep warm with a blanket 😉

 

It is finished 

Yes, the Sunflower Throw is finished! I’m only giving you a tiny glimpse as I can’t photograph it properly – until I have given it to the recipient. That will happen later this month.

This is the fourth throw/blanket I have completed. Each one has been finished before another begun, however……

It would appear that I have finally entered the real world of crochet, because all of a sudden I find myself with more than one project on hand!

You have had a little preview of the above before in as much as I showed you a sample and below are a few balls of yarn that are waiting for a long-term project.

No pictures taken yet, but I also have another little project in mind. As this blog is about SLOW Crochet you may well be seeing these in various guises for quite some time 😉
