Yarn Along with Gudrun

I love Ginny’s Yarn Along – a chance to meet up with other yarn lovers and see what they are making and what they are reading.

Here is my progress report on the two Rosslyns so far

Rosslyn by Helen Shrimpton

A paid for pattern by Helen Shrimpton.

This is a really lovely relaxing pattern to make and just the thing to be making alongside the current Cosmic Cal. I usually finish the rows given for the Cosmic Cal a few days before we are given our next set of instructions, so I then move to working on the Rosslyns.

As I have mentioned before I have made a few alterations to the pattern

and now I have also added some butterflies – pattern by Debbie Dearest.crochet butterflies

My intention was to make a single bedspread, as a birthday present for each of my twin granddaughters (they will be 6 in October). The butterflies were there to make the finished bedspread rectangular rather than square.

Once I had done the butterflies and a bit of the border, it felt like the right time to stop.  Just to be sure I tried one out on Little Bro’s bedRosslyn

Yes, that looked fine so I made the edging and finished one, with just the butterfly bodies to complete and ends to sew in.

This means they will be lap blankets instead of bedspreads but they can still go on their beds.

Whilst crocheting I have been enjoying the

The Gudrun Saga by Lucy Catherine

I’ve listened to all of the Series and currently Series 4 is being serialised on BBC Radio 4

Overseas readers might be able to catch it on 4 Extra

Do you listen to the radio or podcasts whilst crafting? If so I’d love to know which ones.

  3. What beautiful blankets! That is a good idea to have a second project while you’re waiting for clues. 🙂 I keep meaning to get into podcasts, but haven’t yet.

    Delightful! Also, so cozy to think of two little bodies snuggling under their blankets.
