EVERYBODY NEEDS A HELPING HAND...
I started this little quilt a week or so ago and then got sidetracked...that's what comes of having a butterfly mind!
But now I've decided to send a parcel of blankets away for a charity I support, then I'd better get a move on. The blue spotty fabric was used for Father Christmas's chair in the grotto I decorated last December and now it's going to be a fleecy backing :-) Yay for multi-purpose fabric!!
Not a perfect match but it'll do...and that means more stash has been busted. Yee Haar!!
I finished the second blanket made out of that bl674y splitty cotton, so have two to send off to the outreach project in Denbighshire who contacted me two weeks ago. It may be a pig to work with but the result is soft, heavy and snuggly. So, it's an ill wind, eh?!
I like this treble (US Double) stitch in the space very much...it's super speedy and makes the yarn go quite far. I know the V stitch is popular but I've never enjoyed it that much. I made up the bobbly edging on the top blanket - it was 1 double, 1 chain, 1 double into the same stitch, slip stitch into the next stitch and then repeat. Quite effective without being too lacy!
Have fun this week - I'm liking the lighter evenings and the arrival of Spring. Might even get out into my garden...steady on there ;-)
