Here’s my latest project. I decided to use up some of these demo blocks we’ve woven the last 3 years at fiber fairs. I’m doing a single crochet around the blocks and the putting them together with a slip stitch. It makes a nice fat dark border between them. As you may have noticed I’ve also tossed in a few ‘granny squares’ to add some variety. Not but what it has plenty of color variety! lol This one will go on the twin bed in the studio so I have hopes of finishing it a bit faster than the Queen I made for our bed.
I’ve also gotten about halfway done with a new top for me on the ISM. I’m using some L.B. Jamie with kp2. I think it’s going to be really nice. I may have to do some design decisions on the sleeves, because I don’t think there’s going to be enough of the pale blue I’m using, but I have quite a bit of other colors I can work in.

Well, I hope you guys all have a wonderful Holiday!

  1. Looks fabulous! I have to do something like that. I did a bunch of smaller squares in red and pink last year and was going to make a baby blanket out of them with heart shapes in the pink and red, but never got around to weaving enough small squares. Looks like using the big ones for edging would really fill out the blanket nicely and maybe I could get it done before Em moves up to a toddler bed! πŸ˜‰

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas day! Wonderful weather for crafting, huh! πŸ™‚

  2. Indeed it is. Snowing again this morning… day after Christmas. I have some more blocks edged and will put a few more together today. I think your red and pink blocks would work fine. Mix & Match… you can still embroider the hearts on, too.
