April Makes and Musings
April was a very creative month for me. Something about the combination of inclement weather and the arrival of some new-to-me yarns really helped the creative juices to flow.
Early in the month, (or maybe even late March), I received a shipment of lovely MoYa cotton yarns and started making diamonds for a blanket. The blanket is now all joined and I just need to finish sewing in the ends and add a simple border.
In April I also tried out the lovely Supertwist Sock yarn by Nurturing Fibres, which is destined to be featured in future works as well because I love, love, love it. With my two sets of mini skeins in the pastel colourway I made a collared wrap, which I called A Little Romance Wrap. You can read all about that one here.
I've had a skein of Sweet Georgia Bulletproof sock in the Glacier colourway sitting in my stash for a few months, and it has now been transformed into a Haiku shawl/triangular scarf. Blog post on that coming soon.
April also saw the beginning of a few new projects, (alas, one project at a time is just not how I roll), and good progress on some others. I started a linen throw for summer and am almost halfway through the squares. I "accidentally" started a cotton blanket in Scheepjes catona and the motifs are finished and three rows, (out of 10), joined together. Finally, I started a Hope's End shawl from the lovely book Poetic Crochet, which was completed at the very end of the month. More on the book and the shawl in a future blog post.
Coming up in May...those previously mentioned blog posts, a blog post on crochet coin purses, another project from Poetic Crochet, hopefully the finishing off of those blankets, and surely some projects I haven't even though of yet!
