A few weeks ago my beautiful biggest sister called me to tell me about Attic24 and her Yarndale project. Fact is, I've been reading her blog for a while now-stumbled across it when learning about joining granny squares and it 's one of my favourite places to go for inspiration and a colour boost.
I really wish Yarndale was closer because it sounds awesome-Attic24 has been asking crochet crafters to make granny triangles to use as bunting for the big day and in the years to come. So I went and had a look-one of the things I love about this blog is that Lucy makes such beautiful, easy to follow, photo tutorials. She's written up a gorgeous photo tutorial for these triangles and has said any yarn, any colours, just have fun!
I have quite a few bits of wool that I don't really use as I stick with acrylic yarns for blanket making so this was a great opportunity to use up some of those bits. I've made nine triangles and last night I attempted to 'block' (for the first time!) with steam. I think I need more blocking practise but aside from being a little curly at the edges, I think they've turned out well!
While being blocked...
So I'll be bundling this up to send to her-anyone else want to join in? She's extended the deadline until August so there's time! And they're super easy to make :-)
In other news, I finally managed to post the two SIBOL blanket donations after I realised they were a little smaller than requested on her blog-they both only measured about 32" and they needed to be 36-37" so I needed to spend more time adding more to the border.
I managed to get them up to 35" before sending-Mrs Twins kindly emailed me yesterday morning to let me know they'd arrived safely with some lovely comments *blushes* Cant' wait to see where they end up!
