Budgie Blanket

 


As promised I’ve been working on the Budgie inspired crochet blanket filled with striped rows of granny stitch.  I’m so enjoying being able to work on something with my arm but I’m really chomping at the bit to get back to some knitting projects that are sitting in limbo! 
The dark row is actually the teal colour seen below in the basket

Still, I’m having fun playing with these 9 colours just doing random coloured rows with an emphasis on the blue and yellow.  I'm not sure if the teal is a little too dark but I'll see how it looks by the end and may incorporate it into the border to balance the colours if needed.  

 I usually make at least one blanket of some kind over the winter months - something cosy about working on a blanket that as it grows, it helps to keep you cosy while you work on it!  I’m sure that’s why I tend to  do “ just one more row” lol and before I know  it the time is gone!!

It’s quite a windy, cold day here with clouds looking like rain so I’ll likely be doing more on this in front of the fire today!  Head over to Gone stitchin to see what everyone else was working on. 

 On another note - crayfishing season started 1st June - Hubby has been waiting for this for over 12 months!!  He had hoped to get out crayfishing last year when we came down from Qld  to look for a house to buy - but due to Covid restrictions we had to make our stay 3 wks shorter to get back to Qld before they closed the borders on us ....... so it's something he has been hanging out for.  With both of us having fishing licences we are able to get a few each - these 6 gave us enough for Dinner and lunches the next day!!   The season only goes for a couple of months so we will be out again soon for another feed!
