How are you all today? I am doing good, though have come down with a cold so am feeling a little icky But that means I have more time to crochet with been poorly, so there is always a bright side to everything, even been unwell
My Lark Rise Crochet Lace Blanket is coming on good, I have crocheted 38 motifs so far, and have another 34 to crochet to fit our bed, then I will sew the ends in, sew the motifs together and add the border I am a little stuck on how I am going to block the motifs, I have not the room to pin them all and spray them to block them you see, so if any one has any tips on how I can block these motifs, I would really appreciate you passing them onto me I am only working on this blanket on week day evenings (I do most of my crochet in the evenings), and on a weekend I am working on my In-between Scrappy Granny Blanket, so I can enjoy watching my programmes over the weekend, without having to concentrate on a pattern Would you like to see my Lark Rise Crochet Lace Blanket so far? Okey dokey then, here are some piccies of it …
I am afraid the light was not too good when I took these pictures, so please excuse the dullness of them, the true colour of the cream motifs is not really showing through, I will take better pics next time
So that is my main week day project, and my weekend, in-between project is this, my In-between Scrappy Granny Blanket….
As you can see, I am joining my scraps of wool whenever they run out, even if it is in the middle of a round, as I want this to be a true scrappy blanket, meaning I do not waste any bits of wool. I started off with my really tiny bits of wool, and as the blanket grows, I am using bigger and bigger scraps and odd balls of wool, which means it is an extremely colourful, and very interesting looking blanket, lol
I am really enjoying making this blanket, and seeing how it looks with all my scraps crocheted into it I will add a border when it is finished, to bring it all together, and I will probably use this as a settee blanket, to cover me over and keep me all snuggled of an evening When this blanket is finished, I will start on another in-between scrappy project
So, what else have I been doing apart from crocheting? Well, …… I have been cleaning and tidying, baking and cooking, reading and writing, taking photos…..
and enjoying re-reading my favourite trilogy of all time, Lark Rise To Candleford, and am currently re-reading Over To Candleford (the middle book)
And I have been enjoying looking through my latest Cath Kidston magazine, and loving her latest creations
And really really enjoying looking through my latest Crochet Today magazine
and planning what I want to crochet, which is nearly everything in the magazine, but what I want to crochet the most are these two jumpers
and this cushion cover
I hope you all have a really wonderful weekend, I am going to get snuggled on the settee now to keep warm, watch LRTC and crochet I do hope this dratted cold goes soon!!!
