Janie Crow Fields of Gold Blanket

I finally finished my Fields of Gold Blanket (Janie Crow Design – kit available from Deramores).

I had started another of Janie’s lovely kits but found it a little daunting with every block motif being worked in different colours. Being a little out of practice I am not the most confident with crochet and I was finding it just a bit too much. We are supposed to enjoy our creative process right?

On finding this pattern I could see that it would be much simpler as there are lots of repeat motifs. I figured that working on this one would help build my confidence and ability to cope with the more complex design. I now feel more able to tackle it and am off to get restarted. Yay – love her designs.

I simply love it. It is great for taking out & about while meeting friends outdoors – as a blanket to sit on or as a wrap up in the evening when it gets a little chilly. It’s like a ‘ray of sunshine’ and makes me feel so happy.

Hoping that you are all keeping well and coping during these tricky and difficult times.

Peplum Jumpers with Lacy Top Knitted in Chunky Yarn

I love the knitting pattern for this chunky lace top jumper with peplum (digital download from Deramores). It’s a fairly quick knit on 6mm needles too.

The pattern was designed to be knitted in Deramores Vintage Chunky but I used Rico Melange Chunky. I am also making yet another one in a different yarn from Marriners. Will share soon.
