This one is taking me ages! Not because I don’t love it, but because I’m also working on a few other designs concurrently – projects I can’t share yet.
I love working on it though. It’s a great project that you can half concentrate on. Not completely mindless, but enough so I can watch some trash tv at the same time, or listen to my favourite podcasts.
I think I have about seven blocks of rows to go, so I’m more than half way. It’ll be ready some time in the next month or so I hope. It already reaches from my toes to my chest and it is soooooo stretchy! It’s going to be the perfect curl up on the couch and tuck all the edges in so you don’t get cold toes blanket ever!
When I asked on Instagram what the fastest anyone had finished a blanket, there were some crazy responses! Like, four days, less than a week, crazy stuff! Check out some of the responses below:
What are you working on this week?
Don’t forget: You can get hold of the Scheepjes Aquarel at Wool Warehouse (they ship everywhere)* and Scheepjes retailers throughout the Benelux.
I was supposed to share this with you last week, but I had family visiting from Australia so I didn’t have the time (or inclination to be honest) to be writing blog posts. When you only see family every 18 months or so, you make the most of it, right?
Here’s my chevron cushion, finished!
For the design I used Scheepjes Aquarel. The design uses almost one ball of each colour (8 balls including the border) and the front is textured, while the back is flat.
In the next week or so I’ll release the pattern for you, and in the meantime if you’d like to get the yarn to be ready to go, head to Wool Warehouse* internationally or Caro’s Atelier in the Netherlands and grab yourself a ball each of your favourite colour combo.
Last week I showed you the yarn that I’m using for my next project series, and this week I’m showing you the progress.
I love the texture of this stitch. It’s a 3D crochet stitch that I’ve adapted and looks absolutely wonderful. The Scheepjes Aquarel is perfect for the stitch pattern, the colours really come to life.
This project will become a cushion, and I love how it’s coming together.
The front of the cushion will have the 3D textured stitch, and the back will be flat.
You can pick this gorgeous yarn up from Wool Warehouse in the UK and internationally. In the Benelux you can find the yarn at any Scheepjes retailer.
Next week: the reveal!
