Well, as you can see, I finished my Vintage Crocheted Throw. This has been a really quick project (when I found it again!) and a real pleasure to make. I used (if I remember correctly!) Sirdar Wash + Wear Crepe, and following the pattern for the Afghan size, I used slightly less than a ball of each colour, so a pretty low cost project.
I do love a stripe, as you all know, and I really enjoyed the autumnal colours I used in this, it's a bit more muted than some of my crocheted blankets....don't you think the pattern of the chevron is clever?
So you may think I would be at a lose end now....but then again, anyone who knows me, would know that wasn't true.....onwards and upwards with another blanket. This one is Wool Leaves and I think it is absolutely stunning. The blanket is for a friend of mine who is getting married in a couple of months ( this being a slightly more pressured make!). According to others who have made this, it is all about the blocking, but I am enjoying the pattern, and being such a chunky knit it grows fairly quickly (and also goes through balls at a rate of knots)...so watch this space, hopefully it will be done soon.
Today is grey and dismal, but yesterday, it was warm and sunny.....perfect for a wood walk with the dogs, I'm so glad we got out and about yesterday.
