Hello, my lovely friends, I'm back today with this week's Tuesday's Tallies, I haven't been able to work on joining my Springtime Throw as my hands were still hurting but I will have another go in the next few days.
I have started a new project though which I'm very excited about !!!! Over the last couple of weeks, I've been trawling the web for the perfect project using my new Rooster yarn, I wanted a large blanket but not granny squares, I've done a ripple blanket so wanted something a bit different.
I just couldn't see anything that really grabbed me, until Sunday, I was blog hopping and Carole had put a link on her post for a Bobble Blanket. I instantly fell in love with gorgeous blanket and knew this was the one.
Isn't it gorgeous !!!!!! You can find the pattern here on Rachelle's blog called The Nearsighted Owl, I started it yesterday afternoon, the only thing I've done different to Rachelle's pattern is the first row, I started off with a row of double crochet, just so it didn't curl so much when I was doing the bobbles.
Here's all 18 colours that I'll be using, I just love Rooster's colour palette, I'm not sure yet, what order I'll use them in, they are all so lush.
My chain is 199 and measures 141cm so it's quite a large blanket. I'm loving the pattern but it does use a lot of yarn, each colour uses approximately 24g, I have 18 colours to work with and I'll order more yarn a bit at a time to spread the cost.
Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to check out how everyone else has done this week over at Carole's blog.
