I think it's down to a particularly heavy class schedule in May. I don't really have anything finished to show you and not much prospect of it in the near future!
This is another wool-eater blanket, I made one of these before here. It is a pattern by the very talented Sarah London (a trip to her blog is always fantastic colour therapy) which you can download for free here.
Sublime Silk Cashmerino DK, and then stopped and thought about making it in to a cushion. I even chose the backing. But it just sat there. And then, in a moment of distraction, I picked it up, found the wool I had started with and crocheted another row. And then another row. And then another row.
This pattern is just so addictive! So now it's going to be a blanket. I am going to add one more row each of the 7 colours and see if it looks big enough. That's if I can afford to buy that much wool, it's not called wool-eater for nothing!
The sublime wool is just so gorgeous to work with, really bouncy and has this silk sheen that almost glitters. The shades have really evocative names like Carrot, Caterpillar, Pineapple, and Pippin.

Nevertheless she won fair and square because Mr Random Generator doesn't have favourites!

I made a block as an initial sample, then another in the class, and then we did the course again a few months back and I made another.
As I want to start a new, follow-on, patchwork class for the Autumn and therefore may rest the MPT classes till the Spring, I thought I might use up my samples to make more mini quilts that I could put up for sale at out Scottish Modern Quilt Exhibition in August. So expect a few more of these popping up here in the near future.
Don't forget, there is still time to enter my embroidery giveaway! You have till midnight tomorrow!
