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.

Most recent


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.

Knitted rug.

I subscribe to Big & Little Knitting Projects and in books 39 there is a pattern for a fluffy rug, or as they call it, Cut Loop Rug. It calls for the use of 25 x 50g balls if Wendy Aspire Chunky in Thistle (shade 3249) and 7.5mm long needles.

Thus is their version


I however couldn’t get hold of said yarn, so opted for 8mm 100cm circular needles and 6 x 200g balls of James C. Brett Marble Chunky in what I believe to be dye lot 1576, colour MC40. It’s a blue, green, red type blend and feels supper soft in the part I’ve made so far. It’s a simple 4 row repeat pattern, but boy does it take a while…


This is the back, or the part that would be in the floor.


The top (or front)


The yarn.

It’s supposed to be 60x90cm in size once it’s finished…I wonder if I’ll get that far haha

The not quite yarn bombing, yarn bombing

Last night was the night I ordered so much yarn I got free delivery. Now that might not seem amazine but when the balls cost between 80-99p, it’s quite an impressive amount……I should have it soon, to which my house will become literally bombed with yarn…everywhere. No jokes. The kids think it’s a great game to steal my balls and decorate, like they are on a crazy spring break esque thing with toilet paper haha. I’ll show you my giant new stash when it arrives. Oooo excited much 😉
