How's things going for you? Are you having a good day? Getting much done, or just mooching around like me?
I thought I'd show you what I have been up to crochet wise recently. I have finished the star stitch uneven stripe blanket. I think I created a new record for myself, this blanket is totally complete, all threads weaved in and edge done, in around 3 weeks! It was a nice easy crochet pattern that I had fun with, I loved seeing it change with each new colour addition. Having a drawing of the colour changes really helped in the speed of it I think, there was a lot less procrastination over what colour to do next, I just checked my drawing and off I went!
So anyway, here are a few pictures, it is about cot size I think ( 85cm x125cm approx) and made from 8 ply (DK) 100% fine merino wool from the Colorworks range, such lovely colours, I love using these yarns.
( I am thinking of selling these yarns in my on line shop, what do you reckon?)
It is super warm and cosy, as the star stitch creates a nice dense fabric, not really a 'gappy' pattern at all.
I ended up doing a couple of rows of sc as the edge, just something nice and simlple.
I have already started another one in different colours, I enjoyed making this so much!
If you want to see how to do star stitch, there is a tutorial over here at Crochet Spot that gives you the lowdown.
Ok I think you're probably bored by this by now, so I'll see you later!
