Bank holiday blankets

Linda and Julie had fun in the sun over the bank holiday weekend and got stuck into some new projects. Julie started a new picnic blanket using cotton dk, blending her existing stashed colours with some new ones and using Rowan's 'linen' as a background. It's twice the size of the tray already and growing nightly. 

Linda finished this blanket in about a week! It was so addictive, she couldn't stop herself. It is a luxuriously soft and light using Rowan Kidsilk Trio and Lima. Such a magical mix of yarns and with the Kidsilk Trio making the perfect fringing. The colours were inspired by a vintage barkcloth ski chalet cushion made by Karen a couple of years ago. Not wishing the summer away yet, but someone's going to be warm and cosy!
