This week I thought I would try to use up some of the greens and blues in my yarn stash. All were part-balls and left-overs from other projects. I am not a fan of mixing yarn brands, so I chose all Stylecraft Special DK.
This week I have been working on this Sea Urchin Granny Square Blanket. Ice Yarns sent me some of their yarn from their Saver range and this is what I came up with. The yarn is lovely to work with – it is soft and there was no splitting or joins. I loved the colours – and the yarn was thicker than I usually work with (it was Aran weight) – it was such a joy to work with that it felt strange going back to my usual double knit.
The written pattern for this blanket is available on the Ice Yarn Designer website here.
This week I have been working on my Neon Spin blanket. This was my first ‘spin-your-granny-square- blanket and I really enjoyed it. I made it up as I went along but you can see more details about made this here.
I loved working with these bright colours. You can purchase the yarn that I used here.
Today I finished this giant granny square. I completed 50 rounds of the granny square, starting and finishing with Magenta. My colour order was Magenta, White, Aspen, Lavender, Graphite, Clematis and Wisteria. You can purchase the yarn here.
I chose a border from ‘Round the Corner – Crochet Borders’ by Edie Eckman. I selected border #130 and am really please with the result. I used White and Clematis for the border.
My finished blanket measured approximately 103cm x 103cm.
