I’ve spent a lot of time on Flickr during these last couple of weeks and I have seen some FABulous blankets on there, absolutely beautiful and really inspiring. I’m always planning my next projects in my head and thought I’d show you a few that I am loving at the moment.
Firstly, this blanket by WelshKaren. Wonderful colours :)
Then, this cushion by Warrenbird
I love the border on The Garden Bell’s blanket here
This gorgeous Granny blanket by forines13 – it looks a bit complicated for my abilities right now, but you never know, perhaps one for the future …
An amazing Ripple by la shika … I definitely want to do a big ripple blanket for my bed sometime, in bright colours.
Perhaps my favourite of all, and second on my list of “Blankets I want to make” list is this beauty by Maryse_ro, I love this so much and I’m mostly just waiting until I can find a yarn that has enough colours to make this possible. Maryse_ro has some fabulous photos on her photostream, by the way, I love looking through them. I would love to be able to dye and spin yarn like she does.
What inspires you on Flickr? Leave me a comment and show me your favourites, I’d love to see :-)
Speaking of stash, has anyone worked with King Cole Merino Blend DK? It has lots of lovely colours but I’ve not seen it in a real shop to give it a squeeze, only online. I’m reluctant to buy some and it be splitty or scratchy or something. Opinions greatly received :-)
