Stitch I Time Blanket Finished!

This project has been so much fun to make that I couldn’t stop working on it, and my husband really wanted it on his spare bed where he sleeps when he’s working nights. Thing is that this one is just a lap blanket, and to fit the bed, I need to make it 4 x 7 blocks. So now I know what to make later on and I think I will try to use up some of my acrylic yarns for that instead of sock yarn.

The blocks on the blanket are;

January: Snow and Ice
February: Valentine
March: Spring
April: Easter
May: Valborg (Swedish Bonfire night) Bonfire and Fireworks
June: Midsummer (Swedish Midsummer celebration)
July: High Summer
August: End of summer
September: Harvest
October: Halloween
November: Stormy weather
December: Christmas

Yarn used: Fingering sock yarn
Needle: 3.00 mm
Started: 1st March, 2020
Finished: 18th May, 2020
Pattern: Stitch In Time
Designer: Kay F Jones

Three more blocks are now made on this lovely Stitch In Time blanket by Kay F Jones and I have only three more to make and they seem to be the hardest to find colours fore but I’m waiting for an order to arrive any day now so I really hope that I can finish this one off.

Here are the three last ones just waiting to be finished.

At the moment I’m knitting on a blanket and the pattern is called Stitch In Time by Kay F Jones, and you can buy it on Ravelry.

Each block representing a month of the year and it’s harder than you think to find all the colours you need for each block but it’s a fantastic way to get all those leftover yarns from different projects.

I have managed to make 6 blocks and it’s now down to the last 6 but I now need colours I don’t have and it looks like its very hard to find as well, but I have a friend in my Facebook group who will be looking through her stash this weekend and try to help me out with the missing colours.

These are the ones I have made so far.

The House-warming Blanket has moved.

The happy recipient of the blanket, My stepdaughter Gemma

If you can remember the house warming blanket I was making for my stepdaughter in England, then I can inform you that she has it now on display and is a very proud owner of it. I saw it in real life when my husband and I were over for a visit and it feels good to see that all that work was worth it.

House-warming Blanket is Finished!

The house warming blanket is finally finished and blocked, just in time for my husband to take it with him and hand it over to his daughter who now shares her first house with another girl, so what better to do than to crochet a house warming blanket for her?

I have to say that I am very pleased with how it turned out and would love to make another one for myself but I have so many other items waiting to be finished first before I start a new thing.

The yarn I was using was Drops Fabel and it’s not a good yarn to crochet with because it’s very loosely spun so it splits very easily and that is annoying, to say the least, but it turned out to be very good for this blanket.

Yarn: Drops Fabel Print

Next Step!

Now that I have crocheting 103 squares and wanted to start to put them together to see how many extra squares I need to make I noticed that this is taking longer than I thought. But! it’s looking good.

Housewarming Blanket!

My stepdaughter has just moved into her first ever house that she’s sharing with a friend to help with the rent, so to celebrate this event I’m crocheting her a house-warming granny square blanket. I have no idea how many squares I need but time will tell.

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.

I den djupaste sorg kan trösten komma i oväntad form. När Mia Stéen förlorade sin älskade virkade de okända Facebook-vännerna en kärleksfilt.

I am so glad that I was part of this comfort blanket to Mia after loosing her husband last year. We were a few ladies that started to crocheting granny squares and sent to one of us who would put it all together and send it to her with letters and cards as well from us all.

It’s touching to hear he reading my card out loud (the last one). She is a member in my handicraft group on Facebook. The group is secret and only for 30 members and in Swedish.
