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…

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…

Five Colour Friday

Fancy a new project? This post introduces a new occasional series of posts with suggestions for colour schemes. I’m sure I’ve told you before that I love playing with colour, well these will feature some small combinations that will also act as ‘aides memoires’ for me too. This collection features 5 colours from the Stylecraft…

Always keep an open mind!

I’m not sure if I’ve said it here before, but I love playing with colour. No, that isn’t true. I just – love colour! If I had the time I could happily spend the day combining swatches, playing with paints and other wet media, and more. Of course, there isn’t time for that – but…

Ups and downs

Life really has a habit of keeping one on their toes. It’s easy to be seduced into thinking that all is fine, and then to be shocked to find that it isn’t. Keeping on an even keel when things are not going to ‘plan’ isn’t easy, but thanks to my faith in the Lord Jesus…

First colour sequence finished

I’ve decided to count these rows slightly differently. I have no idea if this will work – it will be too late to change by the time it is finished. Here’s the first colour repeat.   I think the colours will become more apparent in the next post. I’m also wondering if I dare take…

Making the most of an extra day!

Happy Birthday, Eileen. This is a day to celebrate – your 15th birthday party. Enjoy My day started very early. I awoke shortly after midnight and was still up at 3am. Consequently I continued with a new blanket that I began yesterday evening. Forgive the bad photograph – it was taken just before I went…

C’est Finis!

No blood, not much sweat, and certainly no tears! The Blanket of Fire is finished! I have really enjoyed making this blanket, and am sad it’s finished. I know it will be loved. I’m willing to post details of yarn used and sequence if anyone would like it – just leave a comment below.  …

Half way

The gallery was made with the new WP app – Mesh. Click the arrow to see the rest of the pictures. I’m not sure if I like the result or not, at the moment the jury is out. Maybe I’ll get used to it….. The Blanket of Fire is progressing. So exciting to reach the…

It’s growing 

Work on this blanket has been curtailed somewhat as I’ve hurt my hand. However, it is growing and I’ll be able to continue soon. While I’ve had nothing else to do I’ve also been thinking about the colour combination for the next one….. I think I’ll be adding another couple of colours – but I’m…
