This week was spent working with crochet pretty much all week.
After looking at the layout of my list and how each category is grouped into 12 it seemed practical to aim for one project from each category to be completed each month. With this in mind it was time to turn my attention to clocking off some finishes in these categories.
First finish of the week came with the second cloth in the Vintage Strawberry Ruffles Set. Again the same Tunisian Simple Stitch was used for this pattern and the project page for it is here.
I set about finishing off the Flanders Poppies Blanket and my aim last week of getting as far as the border by this weekend was not only met but also accomplished. Here is a rough picture of it yesterday afternoon. I aim to take some proper photographs later today with a blog post tomorrow. The project page for it can be seen here. I just love how it turned out.
I had a delivery of yarn on Friday for upcoming projects. the yarn top to bottom on the right is for another blanket, the lavender inspired blanket on my list. The yarn along the top left is for the next design of mine, I just need to finish off the one I’m on and send it to the testers and then I can swatch for it and on the bottom left are the two balls of fondant pink needed to finish the Rose Gingham Blanket.
Having finished one blanket yesterday I did aim to try and get the border finished on the Rose Gingham Blanket and I was so close to accomplishing this, I’ve one and a half sides left to finish which hopefully this morning I can get a chunk of it done. Here is a photo of it completed without it’s border but I hope to be doing a FO post later in the week for this one also.
So taking a look at my list and with the aims I have for finishing one project out of each category this month, it means this weeks projects I’ll be working on are The Water Path Cowl which I’d ideally like off the needles by next weekend with only blocking needing doing, Caoimhe’s Sunday Sweater which I am close to finishing the body off on but still leaves both sleeves, it might be a bit ambitious to hope it’s off the needles also and ready to be blocked but we all know I like a bit of ambition 🙂 I also have one last cloth in the Vintage Strawberry Ruffles Set which I should be able to squeeze in there also and lastly the finishing off of the Rose Gingham Blanket.
That covers most categories this month except the shawl one but having completed two wip’s in the blanket category I’m fairly confident I can do one blanket and two shawls next month as one shawl is a wip nearly done 🙂
