Around this time last month, I attempted to show you some autumn colour but it hadn’t really started turning yet here. We’ve now had a bit of rain and it seems we have gone straight from Summer to Winter at least up on those peaks.
Time for lots of blankets so just as well I’ve finished all 48 squares for the ‘Natures Walk’ crochet along – albeit a week late
I’ve laid them all out and now it’s time to join them together 😱
The colours look a bit ‘muddy’ here because I made the mistake of laying them out in a room without much natural light – see above photo for more accurate colours.
The rogue off-white square is there because I found the last square design given to us a complete nightmare to do and couldn’t face another one so I’ve put in my test swatch as a substitute. I call it my ‘signature’ as it will differentiate it from all the other blankets made in this colourway and it’s also a good excuse.
Although I’ve fallen behind by a week (will soon be two) at least I’ve managed to actually get all the squares done which was the important thing as far as I was concerned. I’m not going to rush to join them together just to keep up so it might be some time before you see the finish.
Plus there’s quite a fancy border to go round the edge which looks as if it might occupy more than a few evenings when I suppose I will be forced back into my addiction – watching Greys Anatomy on Netflix – I’m up to series 3, only 14 to go. It’s not got any better – the lead actress is still as lachrymose as ever and her erstwhile beau is a match for her in tear production. In fact, last night, I wondered whether watching this series is possibly bringing out the worst in me. When our leaky heroine was dragged from the water half drowned by her wet- in both senses of the word – boyfriend and taken to hospital where they tried their utmost to revive her for over an hour and a half – I’ve never hoped so much to see a flatline.
But, what can I tell you? I’m ho😉ked
