Yellow V-Stitch blanket..

I've had this wool for so long that I thought it was about time I made something with it!

This lovely yellow DK yarn has a pretty mingled thread which pops up from time to time, making it a real pleasure and such a unique pattern. It's a pleasure to work with.

It's a budget brand but no less workable for that and it crochets and washes beautifully.

Made in Wonder Knit by Crown Crest this V-Stitch blanket is edged in cream DK

Size 4mm hook

Learning how to do the Lotus Flower pattern..

There are times when I want to learn a new set of stitches and I find that You Tube videos are an enormous help and a great teaching resource.

Intrigued by the Lotus Flower pattern I looked at the You Tube tutorial offered by Hooked by Robin
and tentatively started this version of the Lotus Blossom.

It's intricate and time consuming but I'm sure the finished result will be worth it.

It's still a work in progress.

Patchwork Granny Blanket..

I decided to use the scraps of wool which are left over from various projects.
Making granny squares is really easy and doesn't require much yarn to make  a really lovely project.
Edged in cream DK yarn, this blanket looks really pretty
