Well the blanket is finally finished. Taken much longer than I expected due to ill health but really pleased with it. It would have been good if the weather had been better for taking pictures but not wanting to risk having to wait a few weeks to take that final photograph, I have done the… Read More Sacred Space – part 9 “Finished!”
I did finally manage to finish part 8 later on Monday and, although the weather was atrocious and the light levels very low, I managed to get an acceptable photograph so I could continue with part 9 that evening. The reason I had not managed to finish it sooner was the last but one round.… Read More Sacred Space part 8
I have now finished part seven of the CAL and thanks to a brief brightening of the sky in the midst of storm Dennis, I was able to take an adequate photograph. As you can see, each corner gives me many ends to sew in. Only two more parts to go. I have neglected the… Read More Sacred Space part 7
Recently I realised that I needed to buy more of three of the colours I was using for my Sacred Space blanket or I would run out. Buying on-line is not the best idea when you want so few balls of a relatively cheap yarn and anyway I like to support local shops, although the… Read More Progressing with Blanket
I have finally finished part six of the Sacred Space blanket CAL. The really crazy thing is that having finished the corner with the cream yarn, now that I had it. I realised that I had followed the colour choices for this part of the pattern slavishly, in that the last two rows were in… Read More Sacred Space part 6
The name of the design for this Crochet-along that I have decided to join is “Sacred Space”. For me the most Sacred Space of all is the natural world that surrounds us and I think you will find this reflected in my choices and treatment. As I showed you before I started out with these… Read More Sacred Space blanket CAL!!
In December I shared my pictures of my ‘violet’ garden as well as some showing what is flowering now. I also, finally, finished the CAL blanket and showed you how it looks with my leafy edging. There were pictures of my pre-Christmas cooking of fruit cake and stollen as well as the snowflake decorations that… Read More December Montage
The light has been so bad today that I have tried all sorts of things to get a decent picture and this is the best I can do. But rather than put off the post until the light is better (Who knows when! 🙂 ) I am using what I have. I won’t be using… Read More CAL blanket: Final View
The other day I had an idea for a new project! Yes I know I don’t really need another project to add to my list. 🙂 But this one has been in the back of my mind for a long time. It is to make a crochet cloth for my pine dining table. I have… Read More A New Snowflake!
In November I spent a lot of time on my two crochet blankets: the spectrum granny ripple that I managed to finish and the CAL cottage garden one which still needs an edge. I also crocheted a bauble for the Christmas tree. (Actually I am also doing a bit of crochetting presents but I can’t… Read More November Montage
