Hello from Cambridge! I have survived Freshers Week - and Freshers Flu - and here we are on the other side commencing the second Cambridge week (weeks start on Thursdays in Cambridge for some unknown reason - maybe someone wanted two weekends?!). As you might have guessed from the title, I am joining in with… Continue reading #SpicierLifeCAL – Week 1
Hello everyone! I'm afraid my posting here is going to be few and far between for a little while, so apologies in advance (well, I suppose it has been a bit like it already). Sorry. But there's nothing I can do, it's just going to be a busy year. And hopefully a productive one that's… Continue reading Uni Stash Blanket
My Granny For Grandma granny stripe blanket is complete! Not many words today folks - but who needs them? For my border I did a round of dc (US: sc) with 2 dc in the end of each row and (dc, 3ch, dc) in each corner. Then I did 3 rounds of tweed stitch (1dc,… Continue reading All Done!
Hello! Once again, I am joining Jennifer at Thistlebear's Winter Project Link Party! You can find all my posts from last year's link-up here. Today I am introducing a new project, Granny for Grandma which I am making for my Grandma's birthday in November. This is a Granny Stripe blanket made using Lucy of Attic24's unbeatable Granny Stripe pattern.… Continue reading Winter Project Link Party: October
Wow, it's been a while hasn't it? But you know what that means? I have a huge pile of stuff to reveal to you! First of all, look what I won in a giveaway over at Lazy Daisy Jones! I am IN LOVE with this book! Just look at these dinky garden shoes! So far… Continue reading I’m back!
Welcome to the final post of the 2015-16 Winter Project Link Party hosted by Jennifer of Thistlebear. I've enjoyed being part of this and have found it very inspiring and an added reason for me to progress with my project, Granny Pieces! I am just over 1/3 of the way sewing the rows together. I might even… Continue reading Winter Project Link Party: April
Welcome back! I decided, to keep myself motivated, that I will begin to sew up my squares. I'm not sure I'm doing that 'properly'! What I'm doing is running stitch in the back loops between Row 1 and Row 2. I'll do that between each row all the way down and then the same for… Continue reading Winter Project Link Party: March
I can hear you already! "It's an absolutely crazy idea. You've already got one long-term blanket project to complete. Why do you need to make another now??" I just do. The prospect of being able to go home each day and do another row, watching it grow gives me a sense of peace and relaxation (random,… Continue reading I want to make a Temperature Blanket!
Friends, I really feel that allocating certain times every week in which I must make squares has been/is/will be beneficial to me in making my blanket! Since the last Winter Project post, I have made these (excuse the quality of the picture): There's also another not included in the photo which is currently having its… Continue reading Progress!
Hello again (after a long absence)! I'm so sorry I've been rather neglectful lately! Things have been rather busy and I haven't had the time to type out a few lines to you all. But I'm here now so I will give you some updates. My granny squares are multiplying rapidly. I have been working… Continue reading Adjustments
