Good Morning Lovelies,
Yesterday the day started out bright and sunny and then some clouds came and lingered on with some rain for almost the whole day, and I enjoyed every single minute of it. I spend the day working on my little squares for my new blanket. I decided to call it this one Stained Glass. All of the different colors remind me of stained glass windows so there you have it.
You can see I am weaving in my ends as I go. I find this to be so much more enjoyable when I near the end and do not have that dreadful feeling of being almost done but still have to spend hours weaving the ends in.
A few colors are still missing. I may have to pop over to the craft store today and get a regular orange color and a regular purple, maybe a magenta as well. I am using Lion Brand Vanna's Choice and Vanna Baby, 100% acrylic, this is the yarn I use for most of my projects.
So for now I am working on stacking up the colors. I have not decided how big this will be yet. I do not want it to be too small that it will not get any use. My main goal was to use this as a way to de-stash but as I already said I need to go buy some colors I already ran out of! Angie's version for her daughter was 10 by 16 squares, I am thinking maybe 12 by 16 which is a total of 192 squares, or 13 by 16 for a total of 208 squares.
This is a holiday weekend here in the USA called Labor Day. Time has gone by so quickly I did not realize the holiday weekend was already here. The holiday weekend means no school Monday! I hope you are having a great weekend and a great holiday weekend for those of you in the USA.
Have a fabulous Sunday,
