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...

    • I think you can have a well-earned rest from triangles now then, Diane! Beautiful blanket.

    I've struggled to get a correct colour representation of these hats!   Our day time light is forever changing at the moment.     They're based around a pinky variegated and some coral, peach, rose and beige tones (from my blankets 85 and 86) for double strand hats.   Also 4 more balls of the purple Folksong turned up in the mix so 4 more of those hats too.   19 altogether.    More to follow but I got tired of sewing them up today.

    • I love these Karen...they fit so well.

    • GORGEOUS colours/colourways in this collection, Karen!! The front row in particular, really lovely. xo

    • These are so yummy and warm looking. Well done.

    • Gorgeous, Karen. Have you got snow up there?

    • Karen, your hats are beautiful as usually. How many of them have you already knitted ?embarassed

      • 940 with more ready to sew up. A good final push will see the 1000th soon x
