Tuesday's Tallies..........A New Project.

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.

Oh my, that is going to be one gorgeous bobble blanket. That rooster yarn is delicious. How many chains did you start with and how long did that end up being if you don't mind me asking?

Candace said...

Wow, I loved this blanket when I saw it but I have way too many on the go to start any more. Plus I was surprised how much yarn it needed.

Absolutely love the colours of the yarn you are using
