Joining in with Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge, prompts: SHELL and COAST

The mandalas are getting rather big to photograph, so this week’s prompt for our One-a-Week Photo Challenge gave me an idea.

two MMs

The one on the left is in Stylecraft Special DK acrylic yarn using a 4mm hook, in colours chosen by Little Miss M (aged 5).

The one on the right in in Scheepjes Stonewashed 4ply, cotton and acrylic, using a 3.5mm hook. Colours chosen by me with the twins (aged 4) in mind.

The Spiro Star in the top photo and the square, ‘Fantastic’, designed by Julie Yeager,  are in Stylecraft Special DK, using a 5mm hook and in colours chosen by Master R (aged 7).

The Mandala pattern, called Mandala Madness is a free pattern and comes from the amazing designer Helen Shrimpton. You can find it on her website or on Ravelry. I used another of her patterns: Spiro Star at the centre of my mandalas. With Helen’s permission I created a photo tutorial of how I joined the two together and Helen has incuded a link to it on her site.

Mandala Madness is a pattern for a huge mandala, I am trying to adapt it to be suitable for a bedspread for a single bed. It makes my brain ache, but I know it will be worth it in the end.

Cathy has a very different ‘fold’ for our delight – pop over and have a look.

Leave a link to your fold photo in the comments and I will include it in the monthly round-up. It is always fun to see the variety that we find for each subject.
