Despite good intentions, I haven’t had much time for stitching this year. Life keeps getting in the way.
I have, however, stolen a few moments here and there to crochet a block from my new mulberry wool for our long-time-coming blanket. It’s a bit tricky to work with as it’s “space dyed roving yarn wrapped with a fine boucle”, so two strands bound together and the thicker one differs in width throughout. But with a little extra care I’ve ended up with the most gorgeously soft and sumptuous square.
And the colours are even better once crocheted. The sky is rather grey today, which is bad for photos. But it makes a good, moody backdrop for the deep, rich tones of the wool.
