I have been issued with a Blog challenge .. that will come next week .. most probably starting on Monday.
I was hit by something that .... thankfully... turned out to be inspiration and NOT something harmful or smelly! I have been looking for a "theme" for the Sandbach Quilt Group Summer challenge ... and now I have it x
SO.. I needed to work out the details .. and make some samples .. DONE xx I think its fun .. just hope the ladies agree x NOW I have to make a couple of prizes .. got the ideas for them too... OH! Im on a roll x
The next "challenge" came on Tuesday ...it was Congleton Quilt Group meeting and I came home with 2 bags..
...containing the left overs from the members raffle quilt .. there are 3 blocks left over and they wanted "something" as an extra raffle prize..... DONE x I feel I need to show it to the committee (to see if they like it!!!!) BEFORE I can share it with you .. only fair x
CAN YOU SEE ... why this Blog post has been a challenge ! SUPER boring with no pictures xx
SO.. I thought I would share some of my recently finished shawls .. I know not everyone likes knitting ... so if you are going ..Bye .. see you tomorrow x
(NOW REMEMBER.... a Blog with NO pictures is boring ... so NO complaints about the number of pictures you are about to see.... and remember this has been over the last several weeks xx lol x)
I showed you the yellow specked shawl .. well I was obviously craving sunshine because I made a yellow sparkly one..
SO much fun .. then a BIG yellow one with a gradient ..
that was 4ply .. so look a while x
Then I made grey one ...
which I liked the pattern of VERY much .. I had a gradient called Golden Peacock .. yes sparkles again .. that I thought would work well SO..
I LOVE this one xx THEN.......!!
(I KNOW .. its an obsession people ! lol x)
I found a pattern that worked REALLY well with those variegated wools that you (well me!!) ... see.. love and buy and then think .. mmm..
They were fun and fast to make x I then wanted a bit bigger and warmer one .. the sun went in and the wind came out!! ... So back to DK I went..
I liked the pattern and wondered ....what it would be like in 4ply (yes I found a LOT when I cleaned up!).. SO..
Are you exhausted! lol x You were warned xx I am now back to Dk... sparkles .. and cables .. GOT to be a winner ...
OK that's it!!! I KNOW... ! lol x
If you got to the end...well done x
Off for a cuppa and a bit more knitting x See you tomorrow x
