I've finally designed a pattern for my Tetris blanket so now I'm really motivated to complete it - the granny a day was becoming a chore.
So here is how the finished blanket will look (but I will put a grey border around it)
I've started sewing the squares together because I was so excited after making up the pattern so here is my progress:
When I calculated how many squares of each colour I'll need I found that I have to make 73 black squares - lucky I bought three 100g balls of wool then! For the other colours I'll only need 16-23 squares of each colour.
In other news - My weekend summary:
The Boy took me to a swanky restaurant for Valentine's Day (it's allowed to not be on the day - it is his birthday) more details to follow!
I went to visit my parents of the weekend so:
- I now have my knitting needles with me in the flat - let's bring Beau
by Kim Hargreaves out of hibernation
- I have some pebbles to dress (see my Mum's blog post here)
Also I volunteered to help my friend Lucy as one of here Oompa Loompas in her 'Delusions of Grandeur'
