And we are off

Finally, I have found the colours I like.I wanted something muted that could be worn with almost any colour.A pratical item for my wardrobe.I quite like the idea of it becoming a throw for my sofa. I love the coloured center next to the dreamy creamy aran weight, 1oo%wool from my stash (cant find label anywhere )The centers are all odds and ends from my stash.
.Really lovely motif , every flower looks so pretty.I am weaving all ends as I go ,adding further pleasure as I hate sewing ends but doing it as you go means once it is finshed it's ready to go .. I do hate sewing ends .Don't you ?


  1. Yes I do. Beautiful colors sister!

  2. that is a gorgeous creation, ooh I just love the colours too!
    I can't wait to see it on your sofa :) well done you :)

  3. I hate sewing full stop. I think that's why I chose my jacket to knit, all in one piece and just the side and sleeve seams to sew.
    I want to knit another throw, i really enjoyed making my first one.
    Good luck with yours!

  4. Yes. (Hate sewing ends. Working on different ways to not have to do it.)

    This motif is really nice!

  5. Oh it is going to be heavenly Helda :) lovely!

    yes I do hate sewing in the ends :)

  6. Yes! I am weaving in the ends as I go on my motif blanket as well. I saved them all for the end only once and I will NEVER do that again!

    The colors you're using are wonderful. The center of each flower really "pops"! :)
