Hello my hooky friends
happy Sunday to you all!
Oh there is so much excitement
here at Patchwork House this week
as the gorgeous colourful squares of my new blanket
have been surrounded with cream.
The lovely people at
gave me this pretty
to work with.
If you missed the previous post you can read it
To be honest at first
I wasn't liking the random effect
as much as I thought I would.
I adore the yarn
as it is so soft and finer than I am used to.
It produces beautiful even stitch definition
and the colours are just fab!
I am using
However when I made the border of each square
in cream Sirdar Snuggly DK
it just made the colours
and I totally fell in love!
It is a frequent sight
here at Patchwork House
to find piles of squares
as ornaments on tables and window sills
in baskets and on trays
but oh what a pleasure
what a wonderful sight
when the ends have been sewn in!
So today I have rushed home from church
and am going to delight in
an afternoon of joining!
home in daylight hours
in a quiet house
alone with this pile of yarny goodness!
Do come back next week
for an update on the joining progress and border!
Till then have a happy hooky week my friends
