When I previously made this one I made a mistake in the pattern and ended up with extra rows of plain stocking stitch before I started the lace work. Fortunately the yarn was colourful and it really didn't make any difference to the garment. However, this time I took more care and read the pattern more carefully and as a result it turned out the way it should.
When I started this little jumper I wasn't confident that I would have enough yarn and if it wasn't for a tiny little ball of left over yarn in the same colour in my stash I would have run out. Disaster averted.
It's now ready to be sent off to Knit4Charities.
Another granny blanket...
My three colour granny square blanket is progressing very nicely. The squares are all the same with a green centre surrounded by rows of pink and green. I'm then using the green yarn to join the squares on-the-go.
The fact that all the squares are the same makes it so much quicker because I don't have to work out colour combinations for each square and I can join each square to the blanket as I finish it instead of having to wait until all of the squares are finished before joining them together.
I'm making twenty-five squares and joining them into five rows of five squares. So far I've finished four rows and I'm starting to think about borders.
I will probably add rows in pink and white and then work a shell stitch in green; or maybe just work rows of grannys in the three colours?
Music to inspire...
My favourite song from Hillsong at the moment: As it is in Heaven. 'I will sing like I will there in the fearless light of glory, where the darkness cannot find me and your face is all I see" Praise God.
Until next time
