I would like to update the blog with makes that I have made before the blog existed. Here is the first of many.
I agreed to make some samples for Karina at Rainbow Fusions for her to take to shows that she was attending with her beautiful yarn. This little lot was made from one skein of 4ply yarn. You can’t tell from the angle of this picture but there is a sparkle to the yarn. It was so beautiful and easy to work with.
I have started the New Year with a completed project. I have been working on this Westie Cushion from Little Doolally.
The pattern was very well written and easy to follow. I will certainly be returning to buy more. The pattern can be found on Ravelry. If Westies are not your thing there are plenty of other patterns to tempt you for cushions and blankets for all tastes.
Unfortunately I now have to give this cute cushion away as he is a belated Christmas present but I will definitely be making another.
I used King Cole 4 Big Value ply in graphite and plum and Stylecraft Life 4 ply in black.
I really enjoyed this project as the pattern was easy to follow and gave clear instructions. It also comes with a chart for those who prefer to use this type of pattern. There was enough of a challenge as each row was different to the last but once you had memorised the pattern repeat, it was straight forward to complete. It was a nice project to do in the evening in front of the TV.
