WIP Wednesday

It has been a while since I blogged a Work In Progress, and I thought that you might like a little peek of my current project:

Crossed trebles blanket 3

It started off as a stash buster project, but like many such ventures it somehow ended up with me buying extra yarn! I am working on the border just now so I’ll be able to tell you all about it soon….

      The stash busting part of the blanket was some Rowan purelife 4 ply cotton (discontinued), which was organic and dyed with natural dyes. The shades I used were light brazil wood (slightly pink), oak bark (greyish beige) and natural. They really are lovely and I spent ages finding suitable yarns to go with them to make a blanket.
      I settled on Scheepjeswol cotton 8, which has a completely matt finish, and used beige, grey, and natural. The final colour is a lovely dull mauve from my friend’s stash and that’s the one I nearly ran out of. I have had a look at the Cascade ultra pima and wondered if heathered pansy might be a suitable colour, but I don’t know if it has a sheen on it or not.
      Do let me know if you decide to make something……….
