Seaside Wheels within Wheels - Finished!


Hello everyone! 
I hope you all had a great weekend!   
I had a market stall at Emu Plains again, which was lovely, and then we spent a fair amount of time at the beach as the temperatures have skyrocketed in the last few days and the water was divine!   My older 2 boys sweltered it out at Soundwave Music festival in Melbourne and had a ball. It was a huge weekend in Melbourne with the White Night Festival and World Cup cricket also on, the boys said the crowds were massive! 

Today I am trying to  catch up on my huge washing pile and get things in and out before a big summer storm hits later on.  I really lead such an exciting life!!! ;) 

At the risk of boring you all stupid with more photos of this blanket,  I thought I would show you how my blues and greens Wheels within Wheels blanket finished up.  I was really happy with this make, I haven't made a blanket with so much off white before, but I love how the circles really pop in the light background.

So a few facts about this blanket : 
Yarn: The circles were made from small amounts of Colorworks and Loyal DK in a variety of greens and blues.  The background was Baby Merino 8ply by Heirloom in cream.
Cot size, 42 squares.





So now I am working on something new, I started this new make before the wheels blanket, but now I can really get stuck into it!  
I will show you some progress later on I think, I'm really liking how it is coming up! 



Have a great day! 
Talk soon!

  10. You are so wicked telling us in poor old Blighty how warm the weather is ;0)
    At least, here in the east of England, we have some sunshine. Cold but bright.
    The blanket is fab, adore the colours. Looking forward to seeing the next project.
    Hugs

  15. It's fabulous!!! You've inspired me with this pattern, I'm working in greys with white for the background for a pair of pillows. I'm thinking I'll work up some with extra rounds (in colorful yarns) and put two together and stuff for a ball, even ornaments maybe...
    Have a great day (even if you're doing laundry)! ; )
