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
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…
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 😉
Finally this combination is finished! It’s been a bit confusing for me as I worked out of sequence so it’s good to be back on track.
This Spirit blanket is going to be large! I still have masses of squares to do as the last several days have introduced new temperatures on a daily basis. The construction will go well into May so That month’s blanket will be considered at a later date.
These are just a few of the temperature squares for April. They aren’t in order, but the blanket itself is on track. Only one more full day to go for this month – will it bring more colours?
Don’t forget to look at yesterday’s post for this month’s Five Colour combination.
All used up?
No, of course not! But I ran out of yarn twice this week
First I ran out of Khaki!
I only had 2 squares to finish I managed to make a dash to the shop the next day and all was well.
On to the next sequence, reach halfway, and now I need Parma Violet.
I should have another according to my stock list but I can’t find it. Shop is closed for the long weekend so I’ll move on to another colour collection in the series.
I should just spend the time on the C2c but I don’t like the yarn 🙁. It’s a creaky acrylic even though the colours are pretty.
So many colours! These are just the last 8 days!
The Spirit blanket for April is going to be quite large, I think. More on that another day.
