I've had a pretty much run of the mill week, so I shall launch straight into my Summer Granny Blanket progress.
I tipped all the squares out of the bag...
....... and then laid them all out just to see where I was. I have 230 (ish). There's still loads more colour combinations to go. Notice I'm not telling you how many ~ not because I want to keep you in suspense ~ it gives me brain ache to try and work it out. I have 11 colours, if you can suss out how many different combinations there are, please do. What I do know, is that no 2 squares will be the same. There will be a few I don't do, for instance the fluorescent green and lime green just do not go together in a square.
I have just added the shocking pink in the middle, which I wasn't sure about at the start, but it really gives the blanket a bit of extra zing. Laying all the squares out filled me with some heart skippy happiness. I totally love it.
Here is all my yarn. Each ball has a centre pull so I don't need to get any out of the bag, I find that makes life easier. I'm now thinking about whether to crochet them together or sew. I quite like the rhythm of sewing up and I don't find it a chore, but I'm wondering if crocheting through the back loops would be quicker ~ the jury's out.
I've also been dyeing some yarn.
Would you like a sneaky peek?
Of course, you would.
This is a selection of some Merino/Silk Laceweight.
And this some Blue Faced Leicester Sock Yarn. They both have a wonderful 'bounce' and are very soft. I've gone a bit wacky with some of the colours of the sock yarn this time. I'm now at my favourite part of the process, skeining it up, so watch this space!
Whilst food shopping the other evening I found myself stood by the flowers, I wasn't sure which to get.
Do I really need them? They be over in couple of weeks.
Then I spotted this Jasmine. £5.00 for a plant which should last indefinitely. It is now filling the hall with it's wonderful scent. £5.00 well spent methinks.
Righto, I'm off to rescue the washing off the line ~ it's very blowy here today and the the washing line has bent!
As always have a super week, byeeee...........Clicky Needles.
