Dales Blanket Update

Wow! You  lot are amazing! Thank you so much for the tweets, facebook messages and emails about my new adventure. You are all very kind.

As there are so many projects I can’t share with you, I decided it was time to update you all on my “Dales Blanket”, which I’m knitting using Rowan’s Fine Tweed. The commitment to one square a week lapsed a little in the lead up to Christmas, but I’m back on track. It’s been great fun choosing and planning all the different stitch patterns for each square. Thank goodness for the Harmony Guides and the wonderful stitch dictionary I’ve built up, torn from magazines over the years.

If you’re tempted to have a go at a blanket of your own, you don’t need to worry about designing and planning it for yourself. My lovely friend Heike has a special knit along planned for 2012, which you can read about here. In addition to emailing the patterns every month, she’ll be running monthly meet ups at Fibre and Clay in Knutsford so you can all get together to share your projects and pick up useful tips. There will be tea and coffee too – and all for a £20.00 subscriotion – that has to be a bargain!

The first meeting is planned for Friday 3rd February at Fibre and Clay in Knutsford, but don’t worry if you can’t get along, the meetups are optional and  you can  sign up to join in online by emailing Fibre and Clay

Happy knitting x
