My renewed interest in my Lily Blanket has given me a real craving to crochet on a blanket sized scale!
Lily's grown by 4 lovely floral motifs over the last week. The gaps in last week's photos are starting to fill, which makes it easier to work.
I don't have many quantities of yarn that will be sufficient to satisfy the craving for a large scale full blown blanket , so some yarn intended for Peerie Flooers has been subverted into the beginnings of a small Neat Ripple Pattern blanket taken from the tutorial on the Attic 24 blog. I already know when I get a bit further down the line with this project that I will need to buy some additional yarn. I won't feel too badly about this as I've always given myself permission to buy yarn to finish projects.
I'm working two rows of ripple in each colour from the bottom picture each set between pairs of 2 rows of the beautiful deep blue as I have 4 skeins of this. I'll work in this way until I run out of yarn and then think about how best to add a border. It's looking quite pretty even if I do say so myself.
I've moved a quantity of Stylecraft DK from the "I must find a home for this yarn" bag back into my stash knowing it'll work up quickly into a blanket of some description. I've also taken a large quantity of cotton out of my trade/ sell tab on Ravelry which might be ok for a blanket of some sort.
There's no gardening news this week, our Albanian builders are back this week so its mostly been prepping for their visit.
