I had an unexpected couple of hours off last Friday afternoon so I went to see my friend Jan at the Cotton Tree. She was having a fund-raising event/coffee day on Friday and Saturday. I had a lovely cuppa and cake, won two prizes on the tombola
The carpet fitter is coming tomorrow so hopefully everything will be back in time for the Easter Break. We were all going to get together to have afternoon tea on Sunday but at the moment eating is not very high up my list of things to do.
Now my Moorland Blanket is nearly complete I'm looking round so something to do. My eyes set upon a corner to corner crochet blanket.
This is just a picture from the internet. I wanted to do something that was colourful but didn't involve sewing in lots of ends.
I ordered this from the Wool Warehouse. I haven't really worked with highly variegated yarn before and hope the transition from one colour to another is not too sudden. I don't really want it to look to 'splashy' It's 100% acrylic which is easy to work with. The joy of the Corner to Corner method is that you know when you are half way when you have used half the yarn because the second half is a mirror image of the first and you'll always end up with a square. I've ordered six balls but if it looks like it will be too small I can order some more.
So now I am going to try a little something to eat. Wish me luck chaps.
