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
I made a special effort this week and managed to complete three rows and thus finish the main part of the blanket. It was so hard to photograph the whole blanket that the above picture is actually a combination of two photographs. Then there is finishing off all those ends (I make it 234 in… Read More Join Along: Week six
It’s been quite a struggle to complete another two rows for this week. It is also getting harder to photograph the blanket above the centre to make it evenly rectangular, so I have given up trying. The bigger it gets the more I like it but you have probaly seen the best of it up… Read More Join Along: Week five
Another two rows completed (over half way). Lighting really bad again!! I am really getting to quite like it. When I first did some experimental joining. I thought I liked the joining method as well as any other but was not sure if I was going to like the finished blanket. Now I think that… Read More Join Along: Week four
