I Love stripey blankets but …
…just look at all those ends. When I start a new project I always resolve to weave them in as I go, but it never happens. So now I have to weave all these ends in before adding the border. Just a note – I shortened the original pattern – so I now have plenty of left overs for my next project – the Seaside stash buster.
What a change from sunny Friday! Spending the time indoors catching up on some jobs. The crochet basket is done for now. It needs another 6 t-shirts to get to the height I want. Meanwhile I am using it to store some scrap cotton fabric.
We had some new visitors to the garden today – 3 field fares came and perched on the tree at the bottom of the garden. We have had no interest in the nest box so far this year but it is early days yet, last year great tits nested in May. We also get blue tits, long tailed tits and coal tits visiting the feeders so fingers crossed.
I’m just off now – going to sort through my stash for spare yarn for the seaside stash busting blanket.
Hi, It was such a lovely Friday afternoon that I just had to take the t-shirt yarn project outside to work on. You can see my progress …
So far I have used 6 t-shirts and only have 3 more available to re-purpose. I don’t want to buy the yarn as that will defeat the purpose so this project will then have to join the many works in progress. I don’t think I want to add any of my husbands old black or greys to it – they will have to become something else.
You can see we still have the winter cover on the table – it will stay for now as sleet or snow is forecast for the weekend. Although living here usually means it misses us.
Talking of WIPs I came across Coastal Crochet
Worth a look if you like to crochet. Eleonora has a Seaside Stash Busting Cal on the go – only 4 rows a week so I think I’ll be joining in as my stash definitely needs busting! At the moment it takes up the equivalent space of a large double wardrobe. This weekend I plan to make significant headway on at least one project and will return later to add to the about page.
Before I go a quick note about patterns – I don’t do my own yet so will be introducing a page with links to all the designers and their patterns that I use (or have on my wish list)
I am following an email blogging course which over the next 2 weeks will give me a task a day to help me learn to be a blogger. Today’s task was to update my title. Well I did that yesterday – I added some exclamation marks. So today instead I started my “about” page. I’ll be adding to it over the next few days.
Just time to show you what is on my hook at the moment (well on one of my hooks).
It is the Spice of Life CAL from Cherry Heart Designs in the Autumn colours and help keep my knees warm in the evening.
