Edging towards the finish line

Just thought a little post on the progress of the masterpiece blanket is in order for my regular readers.

Despite crocheting bunting for Scarborough and finding fabric for Queensland (a little of which I had to remove from the parcel to make it less than 2kg and thus affordable to send), I have managed to fit in a bit of work on the edging… actually three and a quarter rounds so far, which is no mean achievement considering what warm work it is!

I must also direct you towards a blog that I think many of you might enjoy… I had to stop reading back through the posts because I was spending so much time, but if you have an hour to spare, take a look here… you might be as tickled as I am with it.

  1. Looking good! I like the purple colour – what yarn are you using??

    • It’s ‘Blueberry’ DK from New Lanark Mill: they have lovely shades and it’s very reasonably priced, plus you are supporting a World Heritage Site if you buy from them. It’s nice to work with too, if you like pure wool.

  2. WOW it’s coming along a treat 🙂

  3. It’s looking particularly resplendent (don’t you love that word?). I shall wait excitedly for 8-10 weeks for my fabric parcel, but in the meantime, I have a blue and white quilt to make for a young Petty Officer who likes soccer and VW beetles and campers… Yikes! Look out for a spot of applique, I think.

    • Please use the fabric/blocks in whatever why you want… I feel a great sense of relief to have sent them to someone who will actually make use of them 🙂

  4. I really love that edging! It really finishes off the blanket, beautifully, doesn’t it? 🙂

  5. I love this blanket, each square has it’s own tale to tell. Stunning!

    • And eventually all the tales will be posted on my ‘masterpiece’ page… I just haven’t had the time to update it recently and the formatting seems to have gone wonky (ggrrr).

  6. OOOO tasty purple edging! I LERVE that blog so much I just “archived” it in my RSS Feed Reader 😉
