I adore looking at pretty things. Whoever came up with that saying "Eye Candy" was pretty spot on when it comes to how I feel about Pinterest. I realise its commonly used to describe an attractive member of the opposite sex, but these days I get just as much pleasure from finding an image of a perfectly executed queen size granny square blanket as I do from perving on Ryan Gosling (although this BLOG helps to combine the two).
At about 2:30am last night (this morning) I pinned a progress shot of my latest blanket, the 'Retro Circles Blanket'.
This Morning I've woken up to find it repinned 63 times (and 14 likes) in 5ish hours! wooooo!
Loving that folks out there like it, I really like it too. Its made with the luxurious 'Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK' which is so soft and squishy. It will be hard to say goodbye to this one. I think I will be making a cushion cover with any left over yarn so I can still keep a little of it.
Here's another shot of my plan for the layout of the squares. Not a great photo as it was most likely taken well after midnight one night, when 'natural light' is hard to come by.
Talking of goodbyes, I said goodbye to my last blanket this week. Excited to see this one have a new owner to love it.
I've had many requests to make another, but Ive decided I wont be making the same blanket twice. So each one is truly one of a kind.
Remember you can find me on Facebook to see what I'm up to and 'ready to ship' items are listed in my Madeit.com.au Store
Have a Pintastic Day!
