thank you for your kind comments regarding the new Gatherings Magazine here, on Facebook and on Instagram. it means a lot to me that you like it so much! I will post details of my projects in the coming weeks.
today a new Wednesday series starts here : the Catania Grande project with Alessandra from Indonesia and Marie-Thérèse from The Netherlands. you all came with wonderful project suggestions for the challenge to test this new yarn. a few weeks ago I made that tough decision and picked these two ladies. in the far top picture in this post you see the yarn I shipped to Marie-Thérèse, for her to make a baby poncho for her little girl. Below it is the yarn I shipped to Alessandra, who is planning to make an oval table runner.
the yarn has arrived in The Netherlands, and I can't wait to see and share with you the first pictures from Marie-Thérèse and her poncho project. shipping to Indonesia is of a total different kind, so we have to have a little more patience for the yarn to arrive at Alessandra's doorstep.
in the mean time, I am showing you my thoughts and drafts on the blanket I am planning to make with this yarn. magazines are a big source of inspiration to me, and I tear out pages that spark ideas. I keep them in a folder and leave the other half of the spread empty, for me to draw designs. in this case a beautiful flower arrangement. I am thinking of translating this color scheme into a crochet blanket that's made of different squares, or I might dare to try my first chevron pattern... more about this next week.
