Not a good outlook this morning, it looks very damp and misty. Not a good start to the day, it has made me feel gloomy already.
Now the sun looks like it is trying to come out….. hurrah…..
Lockton Squares Blanket
See the free pattern for the squares on last weeks blog. Click here
Update on the Lockton Squares Blanket I have finished mine this week and managed to make a border with the remaining yarn, I have worked 63 squares and placed them 7 across x 9 tall, Joining them diagonally using dc.
The border is 4 rounds of trebles with 5 tr. in each corner on the 1st round and 3tr. in the centre st. of the corners in the following rounds. Finally I made a loopy edge with 1dc., 3ch., miss 1tr., 1dc. in next st. I was pleased with the final result.
Schjeepes CAL 2017
Since finishing the Lockton Blanket I have done a little more of the CAL. I bought the kit to crochet along alas I have been too busy with other things, I was only on week 2, I have now finished weeks 2 and 3. I still have many weeks to catch up though because it is on week 11. I had not realised that there was going to be lots of surface cross stitching to do and it put me off a little, but the brighter our nights are getting I am able to see better to work them. So I really enjoyed working the last panel. The cross stitching for each panel has not taken as long to do as I thought.
I am still trying to get another idea for using the beautiful Caron Cakes we now have in stock, on our Wool to your Door website. I have worked a granny type blanket and want to do something else so that it will show off the shading more than the blanket did. I loved the yarn though, it is soft and easy to crochet.
Lots of work to do today and I am picking my Grandson up from school this afternoon ” note to self do not forget” I must add a reminder to my phone. All done 🙂
I am trying to decide what colours to use for my next piece of work do I use the green and bright pink ( Fiesta ) or green and bright orange ( Jaffa )
Oh the decisions I have to make…..
If only life were that easy and that was the only thing we all had to decide.
I hope you all have a good week
