Purple is the new pink finished 

If you follow me on Instagram you may have read that the small project is finished. It only took a few days, and frankly, would have taken much less if I hadn’t had other things to do too.  12 Granny Squares- the colours are listed below.  Each square was edged on 3 sides with cream. …

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…

Spirit of the third week of January 

You may remember reading this post, in which I admitted being sidetracked from the tasks in hand due to the absence of Lobelia in my local shops etc. Well, I’ve continued to work on it alongside other projects (these include my temperature blanket and a rainbow blanket, there will be more about these in future…

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.  …

Jumping in with two feet!

It’s easy to jump in! Especially on the internet! I enjoy blogging – generally – and have a presence in several places on the Web. Over the years I’ve blogged daily- monthly – weekly – and just when the fancy ‘took’ me.  I’ve followed themes, used the WordPress photo prompts, and sometimes just gone with…

Edging begun 

   I’m not going to make my self-imposed hoped for deadline, but I’d rather it was well finished than rushed
