Just a quick post today to show you what I started working on yesterday. I think I have a bit of a thing going at the moment for circles, I have been making lots of roundish things this week!
I came across this gorgeous blanket from the lovely blog The Swiss Garden on Pinterest, as you do, (check out all her beautiful crochet, but the one I came across was the grey one with the colourful circles), and with a bit of internet sleuthing, I found the pattern on Ravelry, so this is my new blanket start! The pattern is called 'Wheels within Wheels' by Frankie's Knitted Stuff, and I think it is going to be lovely for my day bed. Thanks to Frankie for such a great pattern!
The plan is to make a heap of these little round 'wheels' and then turn them into squares using a neutral (something different for me), I'm thinking a nice heathered grey or charcoal would really make the colours pop.
So far I have made 3 and a half, and I am trying something new by darning the ends in as I finish each round. I have my big darning needle next to me and just weave them in at the end of each round while I decide what colour to do next. So far it is working well, and not taking up much extra time.
I love how there is a bit of texture in these rounds, I think it is going to look great! I am so enthusiastic about this new project, I am going to take it to my sisters when we go there for dinner and do a bit of hooky while we all chat!
So what are you up to, making anything new?
Have you got big plans for the weekend?
