I guess it was well worth standing on the step ladders to take this shot then.
I finally got on to the Explore pages with this photo through flickr…. YAY!!!!! you’ll find it here.
There is something about the Wooleater pattern that I would definitely recommend you try… but it does live up to its name WOOLEATER. So be prepared for the expense, although it works well with standard acrylic yarn and thank god that I found some in Shaws for just 75p a ball.
The texture is amazing. It’s warm and the effects of the little chains over lapping into the next colour section make for a wonderful tactile piece of work that you just can’t help but stroke and run your hands over… in fact, it almost became like a family pet, that I watched grow into a beautiful blanket thanks to regular feeds, every four hours through the night!
Its now the family “piggy blanket” made for picnics, lazy summer days on the lawn and something to keep us warm on a breezy summer beach…Ok, ok …. let me have my dream
If you want to have a try then you can find the pattern and tutorial here on Sarah London
Now its dilemma time. I’m struggling to find the next project to make….thanks for your suggestions of cardigans and baby clothes, but the truth is the idea of making something to fit horrifies me! Could that be the reason why I favour making afghans and cushions?
BUT, there was something that did catch my eye (although not yet totally convinced…) a lovely cardigan that would hide a million chocolate sins and forgive a less than perfect lap around the running track ( got to get back to the gym!)
Here is the link for the pattern thanks to Jane and Mo for suggesting Daily Crochet
A few days off the hook should allow something to catch my eye… nothing like Crotchetier’s Block eh!
Anyways, if you want to have a giggle, pop over to see Babancat blog.. http://babancat.blogspot.com/ she’s got a video on there than brought me to my knees with laughter.. it’s called Sh*t knitters say .. need I say anymore!!
Have a fantastic sunny spring on its way day….. Helen x
