I have joined the Snowmelt MKAL on Ravelry and was not pleased with my firs choice of three colours, so I frogged it and ordered two new colours to complement the one that I kept from the tree first one.
The new colours came Feb 28th so I started as soon as I could and last night the Clue 1 was ready and I am so much more pleased with the look now.
Here is clue 1 done in the new colours. I’m very pleased!

I have found this lovely blog that shows how to join granny squares with a beautiful Flat Braid Join between the squares. Absolutely stunning!
I’m in the middle of making a granny square blanket too called the “Friendship Blanket”, where some Facebook Friends in my group there are doing this together. So this will be the way I will join it together.
Snart är det advent! I år skippar vi julstressen och väljer att göra december till en tid för återhämtning, frid och eftertanke. Och vad passar bäst för att uppnå detta …

This looks like something fun to try out one day and I’m sorry that it’s in Swedish, but there are English sites out there doing this too and YouTube.

Found this beautiful card this morning, “After the Rain”, and there’s a film showing how it was made. Now I need to buy some dies! LOL

Found a fantastic site where you can knit 16 different heels to your socks!
I have been giving this a great deal of thought lately and I am so eager to learn to dye my own yarn and hopefully be able to sell some of it. I have to do a small test first to work it out before I buy the expensive yarn/wool bases.
