|Lots of colourful circles waiting to be squared up!|
How are you going my crafty friends?
It feels like I haven't been here for ages!
I have been missing my little blog recently, the days have been whizzing by without a lot of computer time, but today I am going to show you a blanket that I am in the process of making.
It is another Sunburst Granny Square blanket, I really love this square, so simple yet pleasing! Priscilla Hewitt sure knows how to write a great crochet pattern!
I have made this pattern before, a long time ago when I first learnt to crochet, ( about 4 years ago), so it has been nice to give it another go in completely different colours.
This is the beginning, I wanted to use up some of the large stash of scrap balls that I own, so lots of pretty colour all mixed together ...
...then I started playing around with colour schemes within all the different colours I was using, getting a bit side-tracked, I think I might come back to these colours and make a more limited palette blanket one day, too cute not to document though! Loving all the pinks and greens together. :)
Next it was time to to start squaring them up, I chose grey because it a nice neutral background colour, plus I had just received my shipment of Cascade 220 Superwash and it had a lovely Silver Grey that I just had to use!
....more squares and colour........
....this is where I'm up to at the moment, I need to make about another 20 squares to make a cot blanket size, but I think they are looking nice and chirpy all together! Very happy with this little stash busting project! :)
So my friends, what have you been making recently?
Are you doing any stash busting?
Are you finding it harder to fit in computer time like me?
How do you balance all the different social medias around these days? Is it even worth trying? I am having trouble juggling my blog, Instagram and Facebook, I don't even bother with Twitter or anything else. And I'm not posting on Facebook as much either!
There has to be time to live real life or there is nothing to post about anyway!
