So I splurged and bought some more Cascade 220 in various shades of cream and blues to make a blanket pattern by Helen Shrimpton called ‘Heart of Friendship’ (pattern on Ravelry can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/heart-of-friendship). This will be my work in progress during the uni semester, which has officially started today.
I have the centre of the middle block done so far, and the pattern is bubbling a bit at the moment but I’m sure it will flatten out in the later rows. My sister is also crocheting this pattern, and is only a few rows behind. Her colours are gorgeous too – I’ll try to convince her to send some pictures for me to display 🙂
It’s been snowing quite heavily on the mountains here in Tasmania over the last couple of weeks, and since my step-daughter has just arrived for her mid-year holiday from Darwin, we bundled ourselves into the car and went up Mount Wellington to have a play in the snow. It was awesome! One can never get sick of seeing snow 🙂
