My Sky Blanket in September #SkyBlanket2016
I can't believe how quickly the year is going! It's October already, and so that means it's time for my Sky Blanket in September update post. As a reminder, here's how my blanket has progressed so far - January, February, March, April, May, June, July and August, and here is how it is looking now:
As you can see, it has long outgrown my sofa photo spot, it really is getting very large now! I hope that it's not going to end up too long and skinny, I think that we may end up using it sideways along the length of the sofa. It certainly is nice and warm and cosy to sit underneath. I'm finding it a bit of a pain to keep dragging out to work on so I've been doing a few days at a time, and trying to be good and sew in the ends as I go. It is definitely going to need a border to even out the edges a little bit, but that's going to be a good bit of work!
The month has been another mixed one, still plenty of blue in there but interspersed with grey too. I'm wondering whether when the blanket is finished there will be any distinction at all between summer and winter!
I very much like the combination of colours that I've ended up with and I like the stiches (mainly half treble) that I've used, it makes a nice solid blanket that hopefully won't stretch out of shape.
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.
