Hello All!

Well the last week or so has been lovely and sunny! Which means ive been busy, but not so much on the craft front. There’s a few things in the pipe line at the moment though. 🙂 Some of which are incredibly fun and exciting! I’ve recently started on another blanket. Its made with lots of different types of ‘Drops Fabel’ (which are currently on sale at WoolWarehouse!!). And its just amazing stuff. The colours, the different prints, the texture, and mixing them all together looks sooo good!! Its quite a pleasurable time im having making this 🙂

Heres a few pictures! –

This project really has been a long one, but the best by far! Its taken many, many hours, and SO many balls of wool. But its amazing (if i must say so myself 🙂 ) I have loved every minute making this and watching it grow. And loved how it kept me warm what i was working on it!
It was never supposed to end up this big, i think i got carried away on more than one occasion and felt the urge to buy yet more wool, and turn it into the monstrous beauty it is today.

Its just over a double sized blanket i would say? My bed as shown in the pictures is a king, and its slightly smaller, so would look lovely draped over a double 🙂

Here’s some workings out I’ve done…
The Pink/Purple wool was ‘James C Brett Woodlander’ and the white/Gret was ‘Robin DK’. I used double strands throughout and a 9mm crochet hook. The stitch used was Half Treble.
It measures 150cm x 213cm / 59″ x 84″ / Appox 5ft x 7ft, and weighs around 3 Kilos!

And here’s some pictures… !
