I started a couple projects hoping to cheer myself up. One of it is the Granny Patchwork blanket.
This is going to be my biggest project ever.I usually keep away from huge projects fearing that I will lose interest halfway through it. For this one though I think the colour change will keep me interested.We will have to see though.
The yarn is Stylecraft DK Lucy Pack.I got it from Deramores when I was in India.I was really impressed with their service and so excited that I could finally shop online.That the people at the post office thought I was receiving pillows from UK
The other project is Something Pretty square.I’m planning to make a bag
Have you noticed since the beginning of this year, I have only made squares predominately?
These squares were originally for a little cushion that my mother in law made a long time ago for A .A misplaced it somewhere and so I decided to turn the squares into a Teapoy cover just in time for my parent’s 40th wedding anniversary.
What makes me excited about this cover is not the top …..it’s the edging that I came up with for it.
All made with Laura cotton yarn and a 4.mm.Pony Hook. All that cotton yarn has made the cover quite heavy ,even if that’s what make it hang so nicely.I really like this yarn ,just wish it came in 100gm balls. The border was a yarn eater really.I do regret not keeping count of the number of balls I used for it and also not making note of what I did. However,its easily reproducible .Nothing complicated at all!
yes ,it completely matched the cake; no, it was not planned but a sweet coincidence
I also made a couple of other little things here and there….an edging for a hand towel
and a little granny square with Embroidery floss and 1.75 mm steel hook.This is a colour combination I saw online and wanted to try it .
These squares are going to be a table runner soon. I’m planning to join them using the mattress stitch.
All this week, I’ve been working on these squares like a fiend.I just couldn’t stop making them. So much so I have a ache in my thumb!
