Fall Poncho CAL

Yes…another haha this is the Fall Poncho CAL created by Crochet Memories and co. (If I have that correct as I know one of my WIPs is from these guys). I just love it, there’s so many textures going on, each set I’d a different stitch and there’s just so much umf to it. I believe I have the measurements right as it’s what was worked out when speaking with one of the co-designer’s.

It’s DK in burgundy and black, using a 5mm hook and is made up of two rectangles hounded together. So far it’s part 6 if the CAL and as I have fininshed the first rectangle, I thought I’d give the second one a look. I’m almost finished on part 6 of this one too so will be waiting til next week for part 7.

It does sit straight and flat, it’s just resting on my lap at current :).

Grace

I’ve worked up a few more middle motifs for my Grace blanket. I have just 15 motifs left to make out if the 48 needed and finally used all my colours at least once or twice, its so pretty and even though I’ve only just started and haven’t joined anything, it’s gorgeous.

I’m running out of room in my large stitch holder haha. Having to find a new place to store the rest.  I’m going I to be working on her tonight 🙂

Playing catch up

I’m currently sat working away in a balbket ice had in the works for a while now. It’s a knitted blanket, made in squares by Big and Little Knitting Projects magazine subscription. This is a thick, chunky, cream blanket and ice just finished square 23 and so far I have 48 books…which of course means I have some serious catching up to do if I ever want to finish it. There’s even more books to come so I have no idea just how big this thing will be.

Honestly it’s much better in real and its not blocked here. I do have to work on my tension for these squares because they are all coming out at e different sizes, when they are supposed to be 20cm x 20cm. Some are, some slightly off and others a few cm away. I blame the pattern hahaha. Lots of different patterns involved and some tricky ones involved, so stitches get stretched or tightened.

Practice makes perfect. I’m sure ill get there. There will be a page set up to show all the work so far and they are also on my FB page – Daisy Designs Crafts.

Another new blanket

I’ve made a find of own brand yarn which is super silky and soft dk. So I decided it best go to use as a blanket. I’ve started the Grace Blanket pattern from My Craft Life on Facebook. It’s so pretty, I just couldn’t resist. I’m only on the first part and that consists of 49 starburst motifs and I’m part way through.

I’ve started from the middle and am working in an outward clockwise spiral and made myself a chart (because I don’t have a working printer) to mark offy motifs. The provided pi tire of the completed item is this:

I tried to do it in another colour to make it more friendly for the bedroom as my other half isn’t into these colours but try as I might, I fell in love with the original so that’s the colours it’s going to be and he can suck it up haha.

As you can see, it gets darker as it works outwards (the all cream is the centre motif and I worked left, up, right, right, down, down, left, left, left…so on and so forth) hopefully the dish formation will flattern out once I join them or I’ll just have to block them.

The colours aren’t showing the best but in real life they are beautiful and match the provided picture to a tee 😄

Continuing with Sophie

Just completed round 29 of Sophie. She’s a sight for sore eyes I’m absolutely loving here. I love the yarn I decided to use, I love the feel, I love the pattern and I’m loving how quickly she seems to be work up on part 4.

Here she is so far…

If only feel screens were invented and you’d be able to feel just how super soft this really is 😆
