Welcome to our first 'themed' month for 2024.......
When thinking of diagonals, I liken it to climbing a mountain (or maybe a small hill. I'm afraid of heights!). You can go quickly at the bottom (short rows)....but then as you near the 'summit', the 'path' takes longer....until there you are... 'at the top' (finished increasing your stitches) and then you're laughing, 'cos now it's downhill (decreasing stitches) all the way.....and by the time you approach the finish line, you're practically sprinting (through those last, ever-decreasing rows)!!
Stripes, in all manner, including diagonal stripes, create some of THE most snazzy and interesting blankets. They are also a good way to use up any little leftovers you may still have, hanging around from other projects....Thin stripes, thick stripes, diagonal stripes....all fun, all pretty, all GREAT!!
Let's start the year off with a BANG!!
CoM (colour of the month) is...

    • Beautiful, Bev. You've managed to post a smaller photo I see.

      •  Thank goodness, Patricia.. Instead of copying and pasting like I used to from the 'photo' section, I uploaded it again from my files and ta-dah, it let me post it smaller.  :))

  • Apologies as this blanket is neither stripes, diagonals nor orange and it was meant for December's de-stash theme! I bought this yarn in 2020 when it was an amazingly good offer, I also made a blanket with it in January 2021, and I have enough for another blanket in the future!
    I'm not great at taking photos these days.... the blanket is a rectangle!


    • Love that colour combination Chris and it took so warm and cuddly. 

    • Loving this yarn, Chres.  Your blanke is a masterpiece.
