Two projects made from wool finished!
I used a pattern by Nicki Trench. This pattern appeared in her book ‘Cute and easy Crotchet’, but I found it in issue 2 of the magazine Simply Crotchet. I added the treble border. The blanket measures about 36” square. My niece was really pleased with it
I have been trying to improve my knitting. I am very much a beginner, so my crafty friends Tash and Burnice helped me! Here’s a 4 patch cushion I made. Burnice knitted 2 of the squares, and Tash did 1. See that cable block on the first photo (bottom right), that’s my first go at cabling, so I am really pleased!
We used the book: 200 knitted blocks by Jan Eaton. (I have the crotchet one too!) Knitted in Arran wool.
Finally, (not yarn related), but here’s a picture of Tash and Burnice our second sewing day for the charity quilts, here at my house on Tuesday:
We just about finished this scrap quilt – backed with blue fleece, and I have been quilting the other one this morning
