It's that time of the week again - see how my CALs are going at the moment :)
This week was popcorn week! ChiChi suggested doing the popcorns in a different colour to the rest of that row/section, and who am I to refuse to learn a new skill. Since I'm doing this CAL as a stashbuster, the popcorns were a great opportunity to use up some smaller scraps.
Lots of popcorn colours! Green, three different purples, and blue :)
I really love how this afghan is coming out so far - bring on next week!!
This week we paused work on the large circle motifs to make some squares! I did have to make one little change to the pattern - in Row 5 I had to change the long stitches in the corners to dtr, otherwise there was no way the poor thing was going to sit flat.
I haven't done any blocking yet - I will just do that at the end when the blanket is all put together (or not, it might even out nicely by itself!).
I suspect at this point that the circular motifs will become octagonal, and then the squares will be in the centre two positions. We shall see if I'm right over the next 4 weeks!
And the rest
I've put aside the CALs and the order pile for the moment to try and get a prototype baby blanket done! Cross your fingers for me that I can work fast enough, and also get the instructions written in an understandable way ;) Photos soon!
