Hope you are all well?
Bit of a spring feel to the air this afternoon, wouldn’t you agree? The sun is shining for once it’s dry time to hit the fields with the dogs but first a coffee, some biscuits and a quick blog. I’m having a yarn frustration week for one reason or another so……
Today is more of a plea really, a couple of years ago I was asked to make a cardigan for a friends baby. Well said baby has obviously grown up a wee bit but still wants to wear the cardigan I made her, even though it is now way too small for her (how cute?). Mum asked me if I could make her a larger one in the same colours, of course I said, oh hang on not sure how much of that yarn I have left? or if I will even have enough? I found it out and was already trying to figure it out in my head, will I have enough? should i add a colour to spread it out a little? Should I just say no not in that colour? Oh the torment lol.
Turns out that I don’t, well I would have enough to finish the body maybe but it would be armless (scratches head), so off hunting I go, all my local shops a few more I remember frequenting on the off-chance to no avail 😦 I am a little gutted as I do hate not to be able to finish a project, especially as someone as asked me to replace something special.
This is the yarn I am looking for, I do not have the make to look for it online myself but if anyone does spot some anywhere out and abount please let me know. A further 2 skeins will be required.
Please help me to get this order complete and make a gorgeous little girl very happy again.
It would appear I now have 5 WIP’s on the go, was asked last week to make 2 baby blankets ready for a new arrival. Said new arrival is the next week so RSI is setting in as I am frantically trying to get them ready before the little lady arrives. Will I manage to get them both done? Some beautiful colours are working up nicely and I will share a sneaky peek now.
I did have to start one blanket again completely, which was rather frustrating, otherwise they would both be complete for your full viewing pleasure today. Does anyone else get really disheartened if you have to start something again from scratch and you didn’t have far to go to finish? so annoying isn’t it? Never mind I have to say I am actually preferring the change I have had to make so Happy Days. Every thing happens for a reason right?
My first c2c blanket
I got the decreasing sorted and managed to complete the square blanket, with minimal yarn to spare though. Again I ran out and desperately trying to decide to border or not to border and if I do add a border what colour? this debate aside I do love corner to corner crochet and have surprised myself how easy it actually is. I will show you soon.
Right I need to go and get the dogs out in the fresh air, then I can crack on with my baby blanket deadline.
Have a lovely afternoon everyone, whatever you are doing, let me know if it’s something interesting?
Are you working on something you have just got to get finished?
If you see the yarn above, please let me know. Thanks in advance
