knitted squares

Ive also been knitting some squares some the same in different colours and other different patterns but all in pastel shades - not quite sure what they are for as yet but they will be sewn together at some point when I have enough for them to be anything!! Its more of a stash busting exercise!

more crocheted blocks

Ive been making a few more blocks using the book I mentioned earlier by Jan Eaton. They aren't all coming out exactly the same size and I thought it was down to my tension (which is usually good) but reading a group disscussion on Ravelry it seems everyone else has the same outcome. I'll just have to tidy them up and make them the same size once I am ready to join - but that wont be for a while!!!

my next project

Since finishing the blanket I have been working on a bag using a pattern from Lucy at attic24 (a blog that is fab) Lucy's is worked in an aran weight yarn and it beautiful stripes of lots of colours I used some double knitting cotton as I had some in my stash and did a few more rows on the base and sides - I am really pleased with how it turned out and have had a few compliments already!

So here it is.....

the charity blanket finished

I finished my charity blanket and handed it onto the lady who sends them off to the charity. I was pleased with how it looked and had a hard time giving it away - I'll just have to make myself one now
