Nearly finished

I have deliberately kept the June blanket a little quiet. However, I'm pleased to say that it is almost finished. I'll be away at the weekend for a family girlie birthday celebration, but all being well June WILL be finished this month At the moment it's looking very bright and cheery, which is exactly as…

Introducing June

But just a glimpse I’m not impressed with the camera coluthough! That outer circle is GREEN! It looks grey to me But… after adding another round … postaday, summer, July, 2017, photography, On we go … I wonder what will be next? It’s Ravelry page is here Save

This is fun

It’s surprising what a random choice of colours will produce. The Spirit blankets are all based around the daily temperatures of each month, and in previous months their position has been determined by Theo ‘appearance’. This month I’ve chosen a different way to work. I won’t give you too many details at the moment, but…

I did it!

Yes, April was finished last Thursday evening. Phew! Now I can get on with May, which is a little more colourful.  I have a few things on the back burner which I’ll share with you over the next weeks but one thing is for certain – I won’t be starting July until June is finished…

Five Colour Friday 

I have really enjoyed using these colours. It’s been secretly in progress during the trials and tribulations of the Spirit of April. No view of the finished blanket for a while, though, as it’s intended as a gift. The colours used are Stylecraft colours. Don’t forget that you can make 120 different squares with just…

That’s the Spirit!

My last post confirmed that it’s June! However, the main object of my current attention is STILL April! I certainly bit off rather more than I could chew in a single month. It was a steep learning curve  in a number of ways, but I’ll share those with you another day. The problem with April…

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…

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,…

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…
