it's kinda funny; just a couple of weeks ago i was saying how much i love snow (and i do!), now it has been extremely warm and sunny for this time of the year and i enjoyed it so much! sitting in our garden with my knitting or a good book... just perfect. :)
here's my swatch for week 10, time for cables again! i just can't get over how easy they are to knit. :) this swatch is actually a double cable, it looks less twisted than the previous one but i do like it a lot!
and, like i promised, here are all the ten swatches i made so far!
as you can see they vary in size, which will make it harder to put them together. i think it will be interesting to put all these textures, sizes and colors together. i've always loved these "random" knitted or crocheted blankets, you know, like those your grandma would make using every inch of scrap yarn she had lying around. when i plan a project i always want to coordinate the colors and think the whole thing trough and it feels really nice to do something more "random" for a change. :)
inspired by the randomness that was lying on my table, i did a little "yarn scrap experiment"; i always save the loose ends after i cut them off. i suddenly thought it might be fun to tie the longest ends all together and make something very colourful and scrappy... so here's a tiny crocheted piece of scraps.
it would literally take me ages to actually end up with a decent ball of yarn, especially if i want to knit or crochet something with it, but somehow these long-term projects always attract me... and i just love messing around anyway. :)
