Oh gosh, I haven’t blogged for a while because I have been super busy working up to unleashing a new store of ONOODLES creations on the world. Have had a lovely little photo book printed to show off the full range of ONOODLES quirkiness, new business cards are in the post with the Rudii rabbit logo designed by Joe. Properly sorted with HMRC re. self-employment and booking fairs for summer through to Christmas (assuming my health stays stable!)
Had a bit of a thing for blanket making of late- they are so easy to sit with and don’t seem to stretch my compromised concentration levels! So here are a few pictures to give you a taster.
First of all is the sugary sweet pink one comprising a vintage design motif and many shades of PINK! I think I will call this one…. er… something to do with pink…’pinken rose’- thanks online thesaurus! Suitably sweet!
Next comes a ‘sherbert lemon’ granny square blanket. Perfect to throw over a buggy, on the floor for a kick around or would look divine (simply divine dahlink…) on a traditional moses basket. The yarn came from one of the local charity shops and has a bit of a bobbly texture- this and the lemon colour really reminds me of sherbert lemon sweets- the ones that are boiled on the outside with powdery sherbert on the inside. here we go-
Last in the trio of blankets is an altogether more robust character, Unlike the others that were 100% best (?) acrylic doble knit, this one is made of Aran weight and many different yarns all with some real wool content. This along with the more rustic colour combination definitely brings thoughts of log cabins, warm fires, snuggling on a settee, hunky caber tossing Scotsmen in kilts…oh better stop, I’m getting carried away. But with that in mind, I will call this one Highland Fling- take a look and see what you think.
A nod here to Attic 24 who reminded me that granny stitch does not have to be square all the time!
Next is a little barrel bag. I just couldn’t resist this when I saw the pattern that someone had signposted on facebook around Valentine’s Day. Click on the heart to go to the pattern.
Then take a look at what I made. As usual I added my own twist with a vintage button and lining.
Buckets of love…
