You may remember me making Jack this time last year? I made him for a friend who unfortunately passed away before I could gift him to her.
Well someone saw him on a post and asked if I could make him and his ghost dog Zero. So I quickly fashioned something to resemble Zero, frogged it changed it and ended up with this which I don’t think turned out too bad.
Hello all, I bet you’re wondering where I’ve been? Well weeks 7&8 took me quite a while to complete, as you’ll see it’s huge, and I’ve been quite busy with other things recently so been unable to spend as much time on it as I would’ve liked too.
I can’t believe it’s done, those rounds for the border felt like I was never going to finish, but last night I did.
What do you think?
Of course I couldn’t take any decent pictures without the schnauzers getting in on the act. I have a feeling they will be using it more than me. I cannot wait to go camping and fight them for it.
Thank you Eleonora at Coastal Crochet for this amazing pattern and sharing it with the world. There have been so many people crocheting along together on it this year from all around the world with some amazing colours in some fantastic settings.
What a wonderful journey out of lockdown.
Take care everyone, see you all soon and thank you for reading.
Good morning I hope you’re having a great long weekend so far? At early hours this morning I finally finished my Easter Lap Blanket, just in time, couldn’t finish a Easter blanket after the event had gone could I? What do you think?
I love the colours and the textures of the different stitches together. The kit was from The Knitting Network using my favourite Style craft special DK yarn and the pattern was a women’s weekly one.
It was hard going and took a while, especially that border, 11 rounds PHEW, I never thought I would finish it.
Thank you for reading and enjoy the rest of the weekend and don’t eat too much chocolate ha ha.
Evening everyone, are you all well? It’s been absolutely beautiful the last few days with record breaking temperatures here in the UK. Perfect weather for this blanket.
As predicted it was back to the Tunisian gingham squares x four this week to fill in those corners. I struggled to get them big enough gotta be honest. Several attempts with increasing hook sizes to get there eventually.
I did need to stretch them to make them fit the blanket but I managed and think they look ok. Put it this way I wasn’t doing them again after all that so they were going to fit no matter what, ha ha.
I do love this effect though, if it wasn’t for all those ends I would consider making a large gingham blanket.
Thank you for reading today, enjoy the rest of your week Take Care Marie x x
Happy Saturday hope you’re all well and safe? That’s another week done and how much fun was this , creating Sand Castles, kites and shells. Three key things on the beach right? Can you see them? was a fiddly week but well worth it.
I think I can figure out what’s coming up next week, can you? If I’m right then OMG all those ends x 4 *sigh*
Even so I cannot wait, roll on Friday, we seem to flying through it this year which is good as I am so looking forward to finishing and getting it ready for camping trips as soon as we can again.
I hope you are enjoying the journey as much as me, thank you for reading, enjoy your weekend. Take care, Marie x x x
