A moment of relief 

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 

Still making progress…

I’ve managed to finish another two sets of 24 this week 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… Save

The part of April that isn’t finished!

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…

At last! 

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….

Do not read this post without sunglasses

You may remember that I ran out of Parma Violet, well today I’ve managed to locate some – so I’ll soon be back on track. In the meantime I’ve pressed on with both the Spirit and Temperature blankets. The first 15 days of April were certainly colourful! I didn’t expect that bright splash of Yellow,…

No more yarn!

What? 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…

Spirit of April 

The first block is complete. But I still have to decide on a joining colour Save

Spirit of March

Blocking comes next, but here are the last blocks of the Spirit of March Blanket There is that unexpected splash of yellow that I mentioned in my last post too. I had planned on sorting the layout over the weekend, but other things were happening so there was no time. The Spirit of April was…

I seem to be stuck on blocks!

Do you know that feeling….. You just want to get started on a blanket! My fingers are itching!! I have the yarn, but I’m still waiting for the final instructions. The sex of the baby will be revealed very soon – and that will determine whether pink or blue is the added colour! I must…

Can you have…..

…… too much of a good thing? I’m still working on the Spirit of February blanket, and I wanted to do something different for the one for Spirit of March. So, guess what? The first four small squares are complete – but until the temperatures change I’ll be stuck here for a little longer. Better…

Spirit of Catch-Up

  Progress on The Spirit of February is slow. It will certainly take a few more weeks to complete as I work on other projects. Here are the centres of the last 12. This month is much more muted than the last two. It will be interesting to see the final result – only a…

Spirit of ….

I’m really enjoying working on my temperature blanket – even though it’s only a few rounds a day. However, I made a rash decision to work on other related projects at the same time. I began it in December – so that Winter in its entirety would be evident at the beginning. December was an…
