Well, it’s Sunday again and I have been working on my Harmony Blanket this week. (Usually while watching the tennis. I haven’t dropped too many stitches I hope!) It’s been a bit cooler (thank goodness!) and so New Cat has been curled up very close as he has moulted a lot recently. This has almost resulted a couple of times in a hook up the butt as he doesn’t really give any warning when he jumps up!
Anyways, here’s some pics for you – I suspect I will run out of the Parma Violet (the joining yarn) before it’s done. (Luckily I just happen to have some spare 🙂 )
It’s back to work full time this week so it will be interesting to see how much more I get done. Should probably work on my Seekrit Project actually…
See you next Sunday!
Well, again – long time, no post!
Let’s try again…
I’ve been doing a rather large amount of crochet recently but I won’t post all the finished objects here today. Might do a post on them a little later. I will, however, post link to my WIPS (works in progress) and then we can see what I do with them…
Currently I’m right into the Harmony blanket by Lucy over at Atttic24. I love the colours and, apart from all the ends, it’s relatively painless. Plus, it’s gorgeous. And did I mention the colours were great? 🙂 (Yarn is Stylecraft Special DK.) Doing the squares has been great during the warmer weather as there’s not a whole heap of yarn on my knees.
New Cat has been helping me, as per usual… takes him a while to find a comfy spot. And with all the moulting he’s been doing in the hot weather I suspect the cold hits him a bit harder so he is drawn to to the crochet like a moth to a flame. There have been more than a few close shaves with the hook!
Next WIP is Sophie’s Universe by Dedri Urys at LookatwhatImade. The design is fabulous and complicated and just so very very cool. I have been really enjoying it but the hot weather has meant I’ve had to pop her away for a bit. I’m making her in Classic 8 ply from Bendigo Woollen Mills.
Third WIP is another one from Attic24 – the Jolly Chunky Bag. This is a great one to take places as it’s not too big – although with colour changes every row you do have to carry a few balls of yarn with you. But the project itself isn’t too big. I’ve also been practising standing stitches and an invisible finish. Looks pretty good – but I need more practise to make it fluent.
Fourth WIP is the Lily Pond Blanket by Jane Crowfoot. All I have to say is So. Many. Ends. I will finish it – mainly because I am more than halfway through (plus it’s going to look AWESOME) – but I’m seriously going to have to be in the mood to do so.
I have a granny mandala blanket that I am making up as I go along and I also have a Seekrit Project which I’ve almost finished. Just the border to go and then all can be revealed! 🙂
This week I’m back at work on Wednesday so much less time for stitching, sadly 😦 Luckily the tennis is on today and tomorrow so I have even more excuses to sit and stitch in the meantime!
See you next Sunday!
