Home for a rest!

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…

A Touch of Constance

I enjoy a challenge. Choosing colours for a project isn’t usually a challenge – and I can work with most of them. This project is probably the nearest I have come to a ‘scrap’ project. I have some yarns left over from previous projects and they are taking up space. They are from a mix…

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,…

Time for another C2C!

At last I can start on a larger project. It’s yet another Corner to Corner blanket The yarn is Cygnet, Kiddies DK. Sherbet dip is the colourway and it’s very pretty. It’s good to be working on something a bit more substantial, but I’ll fit in the Temperature blanket and the Spirit of April somehow…

Spirit of April 

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

And so March ended!

Spring sprung in no uncertain terms when the month ended with no less than 20 deg C! A splash of yellow was the last thing I expected to see in last month’s temperature blanket! On to April now – I wonder what will occur.

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…

Rainbowitis – all done!

I love working with colour, so this project has been very satisfying. It took just a little over a month, but I could have finished more quickly if I hadn’t had other projects to keep me occupied too. I used Stylecraft Special DK – as I’ve told you before, it’s the only yarn I can…

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…

A preview

Collage apps make it so easy to visualize the possible result: When I get to 30 squares I think I’ll start joining them as I go. This will be a real scrap blanket – I’m having fun using all my short lengths of yarn.   Save

Working with rainbows

There’s nothing like a rainbow to cheer, so I have really enjoyed working on this project. It could have been finished last month, but other things got in the way. Last night, however, the blanket was finished – except for the border. This morning, in daylight, I’ve chosen the colours for this, so it should…

February in colour 

So here we are in March! For my purposes it’s the first day of spring. February is over, but I have a constant reminder here: I could give you a few statistics, but the glaring odd one out is towards top right. It marks 17deg Celsius!  7deg Celsius occurred most often- 14 mornings and 9…
