May Yarnalong

Yarnalong 02 05 18 3

It's a rainy miserable May day Yarnalong here in Hertfordshire, England today. But we are hopeful that the weekend, a holiday weekend, will be warm and sunny. Perfect for a spot of gardening and hopefully a braai (BBQ to non South Africans) or two. And maybe a few pages of my latest read, Philip Pullman's, The Book of Dust.

I am working on tiny crochet hexagons in a lovely baby bamboo double knit that I had lurking in a drawer. I'm not sure what it will be but I am hoping it will stretch to a little pram blanket, and will likely go into the village fete raffle draw. It's growing pretty fast and single colour hexi's mean less ends to sew in when I'm done!

Speaking of ends...................VOILA!!

My little circles became a blanket! I used the join as you go method taking a row at a time off the bed, until they were all joined up. I loved watching the finished pattern effect emerging with each added circle. The edging isn't overly complicated but I couldn't resist a little picot 'edge of the edge'.

As usual I had the best intentions of sewing in my ends at the end of each joined row, but excitement took over and then I was faced with just over 300 of them to tackle. Ho hum. I was doing a few each evening until my husband reminded me that there is a little girl waiting for her blanket!

I absolutely adore how it's turned out :)

What are you currently working on? Thanks for stopping by
