i’m re-reading the benni harper mystery series (by earlene fowler) and was inspired to crochet a quilt, this is the complete color repeat, but i need to add a couple more rows before it is big enough to start squaring of the corners

temperature blanket day 28

after a surprising number of above zero temps at the beginning of the month, i am now seeing more cold temps and this week stayed in the blues, dipping into the purples overnight

it’s been a long time since i’ve had time to write here on the blog. life, and particularly my kids, seem constantly conspiring to keep me away. i’m hoping to have more time to blog and work with my dolls this fall, but we will see how it all plays out.

in the meantime i realized i never posted a picture of my finished blanket

it actually is square, the picture is just cockeyed…

the red and black one has all the squares done, but i haven’t quite decided what to do with the border, so it is on hold for now.

may cal complete!

i finished up my may cal. it went together pretty fast in spite of being laceweight, probably because i loved the colors and couldn’t quit working on it.
here is meg lying under it for scale on my bed.

i am a somewhat obsessive crafter, so i always have a bag of stitching to take with me on a moments notice. we went on a day trip to jasper and banff and i took along my current cal to work on in the car. here we are stopped at abraham lake where i a took a “beach shot” on the shore line. i love the contrast of the bright clear colors against the misty background

a new cal for may

  • Posted on May 11, 2016 at 4:22 pm

just in case i didn’t have enough blankets for my girls, i decided to make another one for the may cal. i’m using three colors of malbrigo laceweight from eat sleep knit – azul bolito (dark blue),jewel blue (light blue), and sauterne (yellow) i just loved these three colors together so couldn’t resist. it took a lot of crocheting and frogging, but finally i decided on the design. here are all the centers done and a few of them put together.
New kal/cal this one is for my dolls
i love the way the colors go together. what do you think?
