Wool on Sundays...


Joining in with Janine over at Rainbow Hare
 This month I have a finish...it's been a while in the making, this particular project. Last year DD1 asked me to make a throw for her best friend of many years. It was put aside 3 times when a baby blanket was needed for a gift last December, and earlier this year when I wanted to make gifts for two of my cousins who were battling cancer.

But at last it is finished...DD1 suggested purples and mauves for the colour scheme and I have rather a lot of those in my stash! 😉

And, today my daughter delivered it to her friend, who posed with her new blanket.

And, after a bit of a break from joining, I'm back to making blankets for the needy out of donated crocheted squares...

And I'm also joining knitted squares into lovely warm blankets.  I vary the way I join...the last lot of knitted squares I sewed together but this time I'm crocheting them...just for a change 😊 I've used other joining colours but find the darker yarns and black especially, always look so effective.

By next month's Wool on Sunday, I hope to have some new projects on the go.

Maria what a lovely gift you made and I really love the colours. You are achieving much more than I am in the knitting/crochet area although I have just finished two scarves for the chilly weather we have been having.

Gorgeous blanket! I love the texture that stick gave you and the way it makes the colors "Pop"!
You have found a "little" way to help those in need with your joining of squares-blankets are always appreciated.

God bless.

Hello Maria .. The blanket you made for your DD1's friend turned out lovely. Interesting stitch - does it have a name? Good on you for joining all those donated squares. I have to admire anyone who does that as I don't enjoy joining and avoid it at all costs :) xox

I like the purple/ mauve color combo. It's such a pretty pattern too. Looks like three happy people. You, your daughter and her friend. Joy and gratitude everywhere.

Hope you are having a great weekend. We are melting in Northern Indiana USA!
