It’s been a busy few weeks! I’ve been working on my Scheepjes Organicon squares in the background, but I also shared about the launch of the latest issue of Yarn – The Colour Issue; did you see it yet? If not, all the info is here. The designs are incredible, it’s a must have.
Because it’s so huge and the hook is so small, this blanket is taking me longer than usual to complete. Having said that, the effort is so worth the results already. The colours are just the best, I’m excited about all of this!
Get The Yarn
Scheepjes has the complete list of stockists available on their website, at scheepjes.com. If your favourite retailer doesn’t have Organicon, you can always ask them to get it in – don’t be shy!
Wool Warehouse* is shipping globally again (with some small delays due to C-19), so you can pick it up there.
As I’ve said many times, Caro’s Atelier* is my local yarn store, so I would also love you to support them. They ship all over Europe.
Black Sheep Wools* is one of the best bricks and mortar stores in the UK, and they’ll also ship to you.
(If you own a yarn store and stock Organicon, please feel free to add direct links to your product page in the comments of this post.)
Isn’t this colour mash beautiful? This photo was at about 60-ish blocks in, with a LOT to go. I’ll need at least double this amount to achieve my blanket goal.
One thing that I am doing, although it doesn’t really look like it here is, I’m working my ends away as I go and will only need to snip them when I’m done. Each block has 6 ends, so if I multiply that by 150-odd blocks, my brain explodes, so I have to weave them in as I go otherwise I’ll throw it all in a corner and never look at it again!
Are you a person who weaves ends in as you go, or do you wait until the end? How do you feel about ends? Personally I find them to be the necessary evil in creating things of beauty, so I tolerate them and do everything I can to minimise the effort.
Stay tuned, I’ll be joining soon. I plan to use that really fast slip stitch invisible zipper join so it will all come together very quickly, I think you’re going to love it.
Keep an eye on the socials for more photos, the reveal will be here before you know it!
