I posted about the Spice Of Life Crochet Along that I'm taking part in a couple of weeks ago so I thought I'd show you where I've got up to so far.
The crochet along is running for a number of weeks and new parts of the pattern are released on Sandra's Cherry Heart blog each Tuesday. I've decided that I'm not going to rush just to keep up and that I'm going to crochet along in my own time. So far, I've managed to complete the part of the pattern which was released two weeks ago, I've got last weeks part printed out ready to go and there's another part which has been released today which I've yet to print.
I'm using Rico Classic Baby DK, a yarn I've never worked with before, in the colourway which Sandra suggested. I'd have never put some of these colours together myself but I'm loving the way in which they're working out. I'm also impressed with the yarn, it's 50% polyamide and 50% acrylic and it's beautifully soft and so easy to work with. I love the way in which it drapes too, I think this will become more noticeable as the blanket grows.
I'm joining in with Jennifer's Winter Project Link Party over on her Thistlebear blog. Do pop over and take a look what it's all about, and how about joining in with the fun? I'm sure many of you have projects on the go for winter.
If you've joined in with the swap I'm organising and haven't yet contacted your partner, can you please do so as soon as possible. You can find a list of who you've been partnered with in my Twelve Days Of Christmas Swap Partners post. It would also be very helpful for me if you can let me know when you've done this so that I can keep track of what's what.
