December challenge – the snuggly one

This month’s challenge is my biggest yet. A house-warming / Christmas present for a friend. Her living room colour scheme is grey and mustard, and this is a throw for her sofa:

Made in Drops Nepal Unicolour ‘Goldenrod’ on a 7mm hook using the corner to corner technique. It measure 175 x 95 cm and took 28 balls of yarn.

It is 85 by 50 squares, so 4,250 squares in total, or 12,750 stitches – worth the effort I think!

My first C2C twiddlemuff

When I learn a new technique I tend to try it out in lots of different ways and so, following on from my Corner to Corner scarves, I have now made a C2C twiddlemuff:

The beads were a suggestion from a friend, and definitely increase the twiddling potential!

Made in Drops Puna light grey and dark grey, Wendy Ramsdale dk Malton and King Cole baby alpaca dk mauve, on a 4.5mm hook.
