My Kaleidoscope story

To say I am overwhelmed by the positive response to the Kaleidoscope blanket would be rather understating it. To be honest, I’m quite gobsmacked by how many people have joined the FB group, or contacted me, or bought colour packs! It’s so lovely seeing so many of you choosing colour packs or your own colours, … More My Kaleidoscope story

Stumbling along

This blanket has not been straightforward. In fact, I spent a large part of last week tearing my hair out (and sometimes getting a bit teary in frustration) over it. Something wasn’t working.

Ta da! Baby blanket

It’s nice finishing something quickly, sometimes. I love big projects, I love the planning and the work and the final ‘omg yes it’s brilliant’ moment, but I do also like things that are more of an instant gratification thing. Or, if not instant, at least ‘a couple of weeks’ rather than ‘several months’! So, as … More Ta da! Baby blanket
