Spirally

So, really this should be a tah-dah post for the primary colours blanket but I still haven’t turned on the laptop and transferred pictures from the camera! It will happen soon!
Instead I thought I’d share something spirally with you!

I can’t remember where I saw this first if it was on ravelry whilst looking for new gramny square patterns or whilst noseying through blogs but as soon as I saw it I knew I had to make one. Luckily someone on my list of people who want a blanket also had the same need so I’m making one!
The pattern is from http://colourinasimplelife.blogspot.com and is called the granny bobble spiral. It’s beautiful and really easy to follow the instructions.

Here is my offering..

I love the colours as soon as I saw them I knew it had to be that exact yarn. Its by Katia and is called Alabama. I’ve never used Katia yarn before but I think I will be in future!

I’ve also finished up the attic24 ripple I was working on and managed to do a straight border on it which I am still chuffed I managed to do. I was sure Lucy had posted how to straighten off the top and bottom but couldn’t find it so I kind of winged it and it worked!

And a lady who has a shop on Facebook (MrsJosieK) asked me to make some cushion covers and we saw one made by Keep Calm and Crochet On UK and knew it had to be basketweave for hers too, which I’d never done before because I couldn’t work out how it looks like that (I’d never looked at a pattern for it) but once i got going it clicked!

Unfortunately I totally underestimated how much yarn I would need so have to get more. Its Rico big wool (I think that’s what it was called!) Its merino and lovely to work with!

I best go and do some mummy type stuff. I’m so glad I can blog from my new phone that makes it easier!
Hope you are all ok and if you’re on fb check out my page as I post pics on there pretty regularly x.

  3. I enjoyed looking at your stitches. The chevron is the one I haven’t tried yet but I have a small plan for a hearth rug for one in the very back of my mind. You have inspired me. :)
