To find out about the design process behind the Flower Square Blanket read the Designer Inspiration in this issue.
I tried out a few different colour combos before deciding. I was given free rein on choosing my own colours and also got to use my own yarn, the amazing Fantasy Sock which is just so soft and gorgeous to work with. My original flower squares were made in some mystery yarn I got at the very first Fibre Fest 3 years ago. I think it was from Fyberspates but it wasn't labelled and it feels like merino/silk and is a single ply yarn.
Bible Week was fantasic and exhausting as usual. We had services in the morning and evenigns with excellent worship music and preaching. After each service I ran the craft stall for about an hour. In the afternoons we relaxed outside the caravan. Teh weather was excellent for most of the week, apart from yesterday when i rained.
On Thursday afternoon we went down to Fowey with our friends, Clare and John, and went out on their little boat. The kids didn't want to come and it was nice having afternoon out with another couple. We went out to sea.
Here's a view of Fowey when we came back in again
Talking about Spain, we're leaving on Tuesday. i've got tons of stuff to do before then. Including deciding on which knitting to take with me. I'll be back with my short list tomorrow or monday
