More grannies

While it’s exciting to start a new project, there comes a point when everything begins to come together. I’m not quite at that point with this little project, but maybe it won’t be long.

This is just a collage, don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s anywhere near being finished – but maybe it won’t be too long.

What is it? Well, it’s a blanket, of course, but I’ll say no more than that.

Watch this space!

Winter, Spring and Summer – a collage

Here we are at the start of Autumn – and only 3 more months to go to complete this exercise. I’m loving doing the small square each day. The colours are a bit odd as all photos were taken with the iPhone. Once joined and finished I’ll take a proper picture.

Yarns purchased mostly from Deramores. I love the special offers they give – well worth a try.

August is done!

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.

Five Colour Friday

Five colours can be used in a number of ways…..

For a change I thought I’d try making blocks in alternate colours and use a unifying colour for the border. Here’s the result:

For this experiment I used the Posy Square that I’ve written about previously.

Alternating blocks becomes more effective as the size grows

And it can become as large, or stay as small, as you wish

So, which colours have I used?

Stylecraft Special DK in Tomato, Cypress, Sage and Copper. They are joined with Camel

I have to admit that Stylecraft have a very good range of colours in their Special DK range. It’s an acrylic yarn – but a good quality acrylic that washes well. Deramores sell the whole range – including the new colours that I have yet to use. Use the link and take a look around – I’m sure you’ll find something of interest.

I hope you enjoy this series, and that you find it useful. You can follow me on Instagram as CrochetalongwithNuvofelt, and I’m here on Ravelry. Find me on Facebook via the link in the sidebar. Drop in and say ‘Hi’.

Temperature update

August has been a busy month. I’ve managed to keep up with some crochet every day, but sometimes all I could manage was a square for the temperature blanket. The last one for this month will be made later today, but in the meantime – here is the collection for the first 25 days.

Ends to be wound in too, as you can see. However – it’s been a bit of a mix of temperatures. The blue are cooler – some quite a lot cooler – than the yellows and oranges. We did manage a couple of reds, but that was in the last couple of days.

This block is the last of the summer blocks. That makes 9 complete, so I think I can start putting them together. Only three more blocks to go – September, October and November. All autumn months! I wonder what the weather has in store?
