April finished

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 😉 

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….

Five Colour Friday 

This granny square is a mix of yarns. I’ve chosen some by Cygnet and a few from Scheepjes. All are double knitting. Cygnet: Barley, Soft Coral and Harvest Scheepjes: Knokke and Nijmegen If you wish to indulge you can buy them all from Mrs Snufflebean. You could make a whole blanket with 120 different combinations…

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,…

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…

April Temperature Blanket 

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. Save

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

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…

Blogging from A-Z April Challenge – G is for

Grids I find grids very useful. Squared paper is easy to obtain, but better still – the grid you draw. Measuring isn’t obligatory – and I often start by drawing a rough grid by ‘eye’ in my journal. Are you a quilter? Quite an interesting way of developing your own personal quilting pattern is to…
