My Sky Blanket in August #skyblanket2016
Another month has passed, and my Sky Blanket is getting bigger and bigger! It has long outgrown the bag that I've been keeping it in and it has become rather unwieldy to work on! This means that I've been tending to save it up and do a few rows at a time rather than pull it all out every day. It's going to be very long and thin and will definitely need a border to even up the wobbly edges, I might make it a thicker border down the sides to widen it out a bit. Luckily I have lots of yarn in a different shade of blue that I've not used for the sky colours that will hopefully look good as a border!
Here's my latest blanket photo:
Here's how my blanket has progressed so far - January, February, March, April, May, June and July.
I was hoping when I started the project that there would be a big difference between the winter ends of the blanket and the summer in the middle, and looking at it laid out it does look as though that might be the case. Although the summer hasn't been quite as blue as I had hoped!
I can't believe that I'm two thirds through the project already!
There's a group of us taking part in the Sky Blanket project and you can find us across social media, in particular Instagram, using the hashtag #skyblanket2016. Each month bloggers can share their blog posts about their blankets on the linky which is hosted by Bug, Bird & Bee, The Boy and Me and You Little Sew and Sew.
With many thanks to Make it Coats for supplying me with the yarn for this project.
