Mitered and chequered – the final rounds

I managed to use up all the 400 g of the white cotton I had for this. I did find some replacement white in my stash, but quite frankly, I was getting a bit bored with the squares. However, I wanted to add a bit of size to the blanket still, so I decided to make a granny row edging. I have enough of the coloured yarns to make two rows of each colour. So far the yellow is done:

I do really like it. I cannot wait to finish it, but there are still few more rounds to be added, some serious blocking to be done and some lining to be attached!

No, but I do have this acrylic-cotton mix and it will do 🙂

This collection of dangley objects is a couple of sheep in the making:

We have another playdate coming soon, so it is time for some amigurumi. When I found this pattern, it was quite apparent that it really benefits from using some sort of textured, fluffy-ish yarn. I found this in my stash in black and white, and as our Pip loves the aforementioned nursery rhyme, the choice of materials was quite obvious.

Cannot wait to have them finished 🙂

However, on with a little something I started from my favorite cotton again.

I have this lovely piece of cotton from Marcus Fabrics and I have decided to base a cushion on that (obviously, making the back of the cushion cover from it 🙂 )
