My wool arrived today. 25 Balls all in different colours. I can now start crocheting my throws. I did design one on the computer but I can't work like that in practice - I will have to go back to my tried and trusted method - make it up as I go along.
I now have two projects on the go as I have still to finish the bracelet I am tatting.
I was feeling at a bit of a loose end as I have lots of designs going round in my head, but can't start on any new throws as I have no wool left. After searching the Inernet I found Marriners Yarns had some very reasonably priced wool - so I am avidly waiting for it to arrive.
To pass the time I decided to make a tatted bracelet. I used some gold metallic thread, quite challenging to work. I added some beads to give it extra sparkle. It is progressing slowly - I hope I finish it before the wool arrives.
am now down to only one Granny Square blanket left (http://folksy.com/items/4428038-Travel-rug-blanket-throw, having sold a few lately.These blankets are
not quick to make, so I had better get started some replacements.In the past, I have just decided on which colours I would like to use, making
the squares up as I went along.Being a
bit more organised now, I have designed my latest blanket on the computer.We will just have to see how this works out.I used the table menu on my computer to draw
a set of squares to represent each square of the blanket.I then played around with colours.This is what I came up with.I now have to decide what kind of
crochet stitch to use.I will finish it off with a
coloured border around the edge.I will
keep you posted – if you are interested.
