I debated long and hard about what to make with this yarn. I desperately wanted something to showcase the stunning colours (check out the full range here!)
I finally settle on a simple Starburst Granny design. Simple but oh so effective!
Being a Virgo I like to hook squares in some sort of order. So I set about making the circles with a 4mm hook....in both colour ways... ah yes! Piles and piles of 3 round circles...
Is it just me who enjoys stacking their WIP and admiring the colour combinations???
Once I've got a nice pile of circles it's time to add the crisp white border...
Ah yes!!! Now doesn't that just make the colour POP!!!
The purple colours look just as good! I'm very happy with how this is progressing
I simply cannot wait to see these squares hooked together
Even the tiresome task of weaving in those pesky ends isn't bothering me so much...
I tend to weave them in as I go which saves hours at the end of a project!
Once the ends are dealt with it's onto the blocking board
Blocking gives finished squares a lovely finish. It might be time consuming but it's a step I would NEVER miss out. But maybe that's the Virgo in me appearing once more :-)
I now have around 100 squares made ,with a queue waiting for the blocking board. Thankfully, I have a whole week off work so I can concentrate on finishing this beauty! On that note... I'm off to hook up some more square whilst watching the Winter Olympics and drinking tea!
Til next time
