Saving the world, one crafty thing at a time



Another WIP

This one has been sat a while with just the first round of petals, so last night I decided it was time to start working on it again. You may recognize it as the ‘Blooming Flower Pillow’ but here’s the difference: I’m going to turn this into a blanket…or rug, instead of a pillow but may add a matching one at a later date.


I’m going expand it out to a decent size, then begin to square it off. I may use Sophie’s Universe squaring and then add an array of other borders and such and add smaller flowers like these around, we will see 😆

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
