Hello and welcome to our lovely readers, new faces and old friends :)
A few days ago, I discovered that Deramores is having 20% off all DK yarn until midnight Sunday. This of course includes the Stylecraft Special DK (my new favourite yarn as you all probably know by now), so my brain started ticking over on bigger projects I could potentially do to justify purchasing more of the delicious stuff.
After reviewing what felt like the entire internet, I decided I wanted to do something pixelly and rainbow and bargello-style - so I can do little squares and JAYG, and pick up and put down between orders :) We also will actually need a few lap blankets for the new house at the lake for next winter, so large lap size was probably the way to go. Of course, bargello style is not easy to translate into a pieced work as it asks for different widths of piece whilst maintaining height.
Today I actually picked up some grid paper (which printed not square - just imagine they are square please!), coloured pens and my inspiration pictures and came up with these:
1. IRREGULAR WAVE
2. TWIST AND TURN
What do you think? Which one should I try to make first?
If you're interested, I could also do up proper graphs so you could use these layouts too :)
