Week 32: POINT

SpiroStar at the centre of Mandala Madness

painting stars with yarn

to cover girls a-slumber

and bring sweet dreaming


I’m so excited to show you what I have done with the Scheepjes Stonewashed Yarn that arrived here this week. A Spiro Star at the centre of my second Mandala Madness, both patterns designed by Helen Shrimpton.

The colours are wonderful and slightly mottled, very restful to work with after the bright Stylecraft Special DK in my other crocheted mandala.ย I am really enjoying having both to go to for different moods and different times of day.

Even more exciting is that I have put together a photo tutorial showing how to marry the two patterns together. Helen has kindly given her permission for me to share it with you and I will do that tomorrow on W.I.P. Wednesday.

Little twirly happy dance!


and another skippy dance!

Stop – silly woman!

Eight pointed stars abound in the beginning of this project so I was able to sneak it in as this week’s One-a-Week Photo Challenge entry. Cathy and I have put a list together for the whole year so that you know what to look out for when you are out and about with your camera.


also joining in with Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge, prompt words: PAINTED and LADY

(Substituting ‘lady’ with ‘girl’)

Please leave a link to your POINT in the comments.

Now back to the pointy mandala, its’s hard for me to put it down.

    • I do hope so. There are 3 potential candidates for this mandala: Big Sister and the twins. I’ll be seeing them in September. It will be interesting to see which one is attracted to the bright and which the softer shades.


  9. Such a beautiful mandala! And what wonderful colours.
