It’s been another busy week here, with progress being made on the camouflage blanket. Part 4 is now complete and all of the ends on parts 1-4 have been sewn in neatly ready for joining. I was so excited I had to lay all of the parts out to see how they’ll look together (if nothing else it’ll be huge!)
The edge rows of part 4 took me the longest of all, as there were so many colour changes and each row took about 45 minutes in the end as the colours alternated for each cluster. The finished effect is lovely though, I quite like the zigzags.
I think the darker green works nicely as the main colour here, even after all of the worrying about whether to order any more of the parchment colour.
Here’s a photo of parts 1-4 together.
I’m hoping to have completely finished by the end of March at the latest. Part 5 is already coming along, with 5 of the 11 mitre squares completed and the others on their way. Sadly, grown up tasks like going to work, folding washing and so on seem to be slowing down my progress!
I haven’t done anything else, apart from buying the yarn for my next WIP which is a lot smaller than this one!
What are you working on? Do you ever feel frustrated with the rate of progress of your projects?
