Well another week is flying by, already Thursday, where have those days gone! I don't know what's happened to my resolve to blog more often either. Sorry about that.
Anyway, here is my latest finished thing, the Autumn Harlequin blanket, I so love making these blankets that they seem to take half the time of other things. It has been fun working with a new colour palette, and I have grown to really like the warmer, slightly more sombre tones in this blanket.
What do you think? Are you into more muted colours, or bright and vibrant? I think I like them all!!
So here are a few details:
This blanket is 110cm x70cm approximately, (Cot sized or a nice knee rug size) including the border.
I used 19 balls of 50g wool:
Yarn: Heirloom Merino Magic 8 ply.
Here's the colour breakdown:
Mustard (509) x 3
Papaya (502) x 3
Rusty orange (209) x 1
Plum (216) x 2
Peacock blue (232) x 1
Sea blue (217) x 2
sea green (221) x 2
grass green (223) x 3
Grey (206) x 2
(I think this colour scheme could be really nice for granny squares or stripes too. I am thinking of making an Autumn star stitch blanket next.)
This wool is available in my shop if you would like to have a closer look!)
The pattern was the basic Harlequin tapestry crochet pattern that I have been going on about for ages now, it is such a lovely technique! I haven't written it up properly yet as a pattern, but I am sure you can figure it out from my tutorial over here if you are interested.
So that is one thing out of the way. I am trying to finish off lot of projects that I have lying around the place. I am doing the Western Port Craft Festival again this year in April, and I don't want to take all the same stuff as last year!
Nothing like a craft stall to give me motivation to Get Things Finished! :)
How has you week been?
Have you been finishing things off too?
