I have a Ta - Dah today for you!
Yes the first Jan Eaton Blanket.
I'm really happy how it's turned out ALTHOUGH
it has come out bigger than usual, so I haven't really put much of a border on.
The reason for this is because the Squares have come in at all different sizes, it has been quite difficult to do really. There has been a lot of filling in to get the Squares the same size, this is the reason why it has taken me longer than usual. I have done the very best I can, I hope you like it.
Next time when we do the second set of Jan Eaton Squares, PLEASE do your best to get the Squares 6" (15cms x 15cms). This applies to any Square sent to SIBOL. When the Squares are all such different sizes it takes me so much longer, and then I tend to get bored with it. (If you know what I mean!).
It doesn't matter if it's just half an inch either smaller or larger I can work with that without too much trouble, it's when the Squares tend to be much larger it causes me a problem. I know it's difficult to get the Squares exact, if anyone can give us advice in the comments I'd very much appreciate it. Of course we are all using different yarn which probably causes the problem.
I'll always do my very best but it would help if any Square sent to SIBOL is 'roughly' 6" x 6" (15cms x 15cms).
Anyway, here is my Slide Show for the first Jan Eaton Blanket, and I will definitely be putting up the Block List on January 1st with our new Challenges!
Thanks so much to everyone that has sent me Squares particularly for this Challenge, it has been great fun receiving them! I do hope you like the Blanket.
The last Ta - Dah before Christmas! Thanks to everyone 'for everything'.
Just popping in to say thank you to Isolde (Netherlands) who very kindly sent me these Squares today and her beautiful little gift. A La Zouzita! What a sweet idea! I love it thank you.
I love your Squares Isolde, and thanks so much for your continued support with SIBOL. Thank you!
