Hello blogland peeps, how are you all??
Well I promised I would keep you informed about my blanket progress as I went along and here it is so far.There is a bit more than that now as I took these photos yesterday in the lovely sunshine, and then did a pile of little two round squares and a couple of six round squares last night. I’ve had a bit of a week of doing squares because I have been joining them together instead.
Would you like to see them joined??
Here you go then…
What do you think??? Its starting to look more blanket like now. These are the dimensions suggested by the tutorial. I don’t know if it will stay that way – we’ll see how the yarn goes. I always struggle with calling it yarn – to me its wool. Anything used for knitting or crochet is wool. But technically its not wool as it is acrylic so yarn is the better term. I am trying to train myself in the correct terms.
Heres another picture with the joined strip next to all the other squares that have been done so far.
In other news…. I have completed house number two. A little bit of inspiration was taken from our house for this one (and lots of other houses in the area). It has a row of windows at the top like a weavers cottage. They have these distinctive windows at the top as that is were the looms would be and they would need as much light as possible. Ours has had some of the windows filled in, which was commonly done after the introduction of the window tax so that they didn’t have to pay so much.
Would you like to see house number two??
Hmmm – methinks I should have ironed it before the photo!!! As usual I was too excited!! This one has a tree added and a little grass at the bottom. I’ve added grass to house number one as well, to get away from that floating in space feeling. Here are the two together.
Also in other news… Bit random this one but look what I found the other day. NOM!!! I think these might HAVE to be made. Will let you know about that too.
Right hooky squares are calling to me.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.
