Let me introduce to you my finished Christmas Eve Blanket…
I talked about how I came to be knitting a Christmas project in the summertime in my previous blog.
I am also knitting another sample so we will soon have 4 versions of the blanket in 4 different colourways.
The design aims to be flexible, so that you can mix and match the patterns, should you wish to not do some of the squares and create more versions of other squares instead.
I said that we were going to have a knit-a-long and that I was trying to find a way that I could incorporate some small workshops.
We launched the knit-a-long a few weeks ago and it is scheduled to begin on the 15th August with those taking part receiving patterns to download every 6 days until December.
Alongside the patterns I am making tutorial-style videos so that, even if you are not a confident knitter, it will still be possible to try out all of the techniques showcased in this design.
I will set up a special Facebook page for everyone to share their progress and ask any questions so that we can still be knitting along together, even though we are apart.
There is much excitement brewing now for the Christmas Eve Blanket knit-a-long and we are already fully international with people taking part from our local area but also from New Zealand and Switzerland.
I’ll be back soon with another blog to show you how our different coloured blankets are working out.
