As the temperature has been dropping I have been very grateful for my nice, big snuggly Sky Blanket! I usually work on a few days at a time while I'm watching television, and it's nice to be able to sit underneath it while I'm working, and when I've finished that day's row. I keep saying it, but this blanket is going to be enormous when it's finished!
Here is how my blanket has progressed so far...
On the 1st October I went to my friend's wedding which was a great day. It rained torrentially for the whole morning, but when we arrived the sun came out, and the afternoon was beautiful. As we were eating our meal we were treated to a beautiful double rainbow over the adjacent ruins (all the photographers came running!) and so I reflected it in my blanket with dark grey and my rainbow ribbon.
I also added a pink button for a beautiful pink sunset - now that the days are getting shorter I tend to be around for sunrise and sunset times so I'm more likely to see them. There has been quite a lot of grey this month which is a little bit of a worry as I've only got about a ball and a half of grey yarn left, fingers crossed there is still plenty of blue sky left to come!
There was a group of us taking part in the Sky Blanket project throughout 2016, and you can find us across social media, in particular Instagram, using the hashtag #skyblanket2016. The project was started by Bug, Bird & Bee, The Boy and Me and You Little Sew and Sew.
If you aren't sure if a Sky Blanket is the project for you, you might like this blog post with some more ideas for a year long craft project.
With many thanks to Make it Coats for supplying me with the yarn for this project.
