…or what I have been up to.
Well, the term started and the stitching and the blogging stopped. 😦
But, thankfully, the term is now sorting itself out and the stitching and the blogging have resumed 🙂
So, I’ve put the Harmony Blanket aside for a little bit, partly because it gets a bit much doing all the one colour after a while (and it’s been REALLY hot), but also because Stylecraft are about to release a new Jane Crowfoot design for their next CAL. It’s called Frida’s Flowers and it’s based on the skirt designs Frida Kahlo wore. At first I was all like… um, no. I will manage. But it’s really growing on me and I expect it will be added to the rotation ere long. (Although I am planning on being good and not buy yarn for it until I’m ready to start. No. Don’t say anything. I WILL BE GOOD… 🙂 )
So this got me to thinking I really haven’t done much on the last Jane Crowfoot CAL (at time of writing you can download it for free here, but let me know if they change it and I haven’t noticed) since last year so I’ve picked that up again. Apart from sewing in all the ends, I’m much further ahead with it than I realised – and, since I’ve left it for a while, it’s lots of fun again. (Although 44 ends on each panel? Seriously? Who does that?)
I’m on Part 7 (out of 8) and have a (new) strict sew-in-ends policy after each block. Plus then the ends from one of the earlier panels. Hopefully that will make the task less daunting towards the end. (I lost my yarn needles a couple of weeks ago – but then on Friday I bought some more)
Here’s few pics of how it’s going so far – looking forward to putting it together.
As you can see, lots more to do still, but getting there. I hope to have finished the other two Block 7s by next week. (Promises, promises 🙂 )
See you next Sunday!
