Big teal blanket update

Big teal blanket update

I’ve a teal blanket update today. I can do one square easily in just over an hour. I’m averaging at 4 a week.

Here are the first six all blocked.

I’ve another 4 ready to block but six seems a nice number to fit onto my recently (should have bought them ages ago) purchased foam playmats.

The pattern is fromย the byHaafner blog. The popcorn blanket.

This is hers.

If I imagine hard enough, I can see the beginnings of mine.

I had planned on 30 squares but I may do more. It’ll be a snuggle rug for our living room and I’ve all this lot to get through.Womens Institute dk

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  4. Lovley squares. The colour of the yarn looks different to the squares. Down to the light I suppose. Like the playmats!

  5. What a lovely colour, which surprises me as I usually go for brights. The stitch pattern stands out beautifully I suppose, so the grey-blue (?) works well.

  6. I love that design – it’s going to look beautiful. I’d never heard of the foam playmats for blocking before. I guess it would work for knitting too. Are they interlocking so you can make the surface bigger and smaller?

  10. Hello Lucy
    Just came across your blog googling ByHaafner (whom I already knew) & I’m glad you had a Bloglovin’ button๐Ÿ˜
    I’ve these very same playmats I bought with the same purpose in mind, but… how do you know you’re blocking the squares to the same size?
    TIA,
    Cristina

    • Hi Cristina. Once I’d blocked the first one I cut out a template in a piece of card the same size and shape as the area that WASN’T covered by the square. An L shape. Does that make sense? Lucie x
