Did I mention another blanket...

I am shockingly good at starting 20,000 projects at once...
Couldnt resist these 3 colours together though. Its based on my SUMMER GARDEN hexagon pattern but is 2 rows larger in size. Ive also worked this with Aran weight yarn instead of DK so each motif is much larger. In fact its altogether even speedier than before...
I had a huge dilema (with myself) if I should make all the flowers one colour and all the centres one colour, and the borders all one colour. In the end I kept thinking, its going to be so boring to make I couldnt face it and its going to end up as a cushion cover... Then I thought to myself, what about if I make piles of pink flowers using the standard hexagon, worked on two rows of that scrumptious powder blue and then worked the fixing together round in white. Its going to give a wonderfully dotty effect to the whole blanket once completed.


I shall have to call her DOT...


Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Eldest Tiddlywink is building me workshop shelves so I will be sorting piles of stock tommorow. Off to a National Trust event on Sunday which celebrates the art of housekeeping from the last 100 years. Beret production continues inbetween general mayhem...
