Fairisle is mainly shades of green from palest mint to deep jade with a bit of grey in the mix.
On this Magilly I was quite nicely surprised at some of the colours that emerged. I was expecting mostly blue and turquoise when looking at the ball and thought it may be a bit brash against the other colours. But when I started working it up that was not the case at all.
So far I'm enjoying all of the colours and love to see how each square turns out so differently. More squares to come soon.
The yarn is lovely to work with, it is soft and flowing and the squares seem to almost make themselves. The composition is 60% acrylic, 25% cotton and 15% wool.
So far I haven't got a favourite, but I haven't used the Seagrass yet!
The squares have taken a bit of a back seat at the moment while I make a dog blanket for a friend.
Now the purchases;
|A sea glass marble for my collection.|
|Fabric to make some little hearts, took this at Easter and forgot to post it!|
|Cotton yarn for face cloths.|
|Some yarn with Merino to edge the Billy Blanket squares, see here|
|A pot of hyacinths|
|A little charity shop find.|
|That looks lovely with some white chrysanthemums.|
I can't wait till the weekend so I can get cracking on some bits! I am still adding to my Ripple and to the wiggly worm project that isn't a wiggly worm at all now, but something looking quite good! Something I am very, very pleased with and will show you soon.
Well, I have to go and be a mum now as both children are back from the library and tea is the next job. They both wanted Pepperoni omelette and salad tonight so that's an easy one, got some crusty bread too, must dash.
