New blanket making...

Hello! Hope you're having a great day wherever you are! :) 
I have been making a new Wheels Within Wheels blanket recently. 
It is colourful and  fun, I really like this pattern, the wheels stick out for a great thick textural effect that I enjoy making. 
The pattern is by Frankie's Knitted Stuff and can be found on Ravelry.
I decided to make my wheels a bit bigger so added 2 extra rounds of colour, lots of opportunity fro colour play!  I am using a few different 8ply wools to get the colours I want, mainly Heirloom Colorworks, Baby Merino 8ply, Loyal 8ply and Cascade 220 Superwash.
I've made a couple of these before here and here if you want to see them. 

I have just started doing the background of each wheels now, I am using my favourite Silver Grey in Cascade 220 Superwash as a good neutral foil to all the colours.  I have 48 wheels so it will take a bit of time! 

 So I think that's it for the minute, hopefully I'll have the squares ready for joining soon, although I think they will need a fair bit of blocking as the corners are curling up a lot.  Have a great creative day peeps! 


  1. Your blanket is looking lovely. Those colours are so happy.

  2. Beautiful already! So lovely to see new posts. Dyeing yarn sounds like another rabbit hole that I'm sure is loads of fun! Have a great one! x
