Well hello everyone! If you have been waiting for another stash busting post please accept my apologies, I have had a couple of commissions that have taken up all of my time and the stash busting will have to wait. So, I will share 1 of those with you instead.
I was very fortunate enough to receive an order for a single bed blanket. I don't make large blankets very often, so it was a refreshing change. My customer chose the colours and the design. She wanted granny flowers on a cream background. The room the blanket was intended for was to have Cath Kidston wallpaper and so the colours were chosen around this...
I used Stylecraft Special Aran for this project. I find an aran weight yarn is much nicer for making bigger blankets and the Stylecraft aran is so soft and squishy.
Colours used - Lemon, Pale Rose, Cloud, Aster, Pomegranate, Pistachio, Baby Pink and Cream.
First I make all the flowers
Then surround them with cream.
I am really loving my customers choice of colours. Soon there are too many to fit on my table...
...and then the joining begins.
I used the continuous join as you go method as this means a lot less ends to weave in.
Finished off with a border of pretty shells in Pale Rose.
All that is left to do now is add a pretty bow and off it goes to its new forever home.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to have more things to share with you soon.
by for now..
