FABULOUS FRIDAY!!

I am not going to say it but you know what day it is  today.

How are you doing? fabulous?? fantastic?? Fine??  good!!!  I am so happy to hear that.

Like I have shared with you, I am experimenting with texture to create a 3D effect on my squares, so far I like the way the thicker yarn looks against the finer yarn.

The only problem I am seeing is that it doesn’t square out naturally it has a little flair to it, so I need to adjust the finer yarn so that it can lie flat.

if you look closely you can see the bulkier yellow yarn rounds out in areas instead of lying flat. I am thinking I need to add more stitches in the finer yarn to compensate.

Then I am going to use color to help to create the  3D effect , look at my squares so far:

Doesn’t  the dark background square grab your attention a little more? at least that is what I think,  so I am adding more layers to my squares…

So that is what I am working on about 50% of the time, and I am still putting the finishing touches on Little Junior .

Lil Pet really should be annoyed now, I have not touched her in weeks, sorry Lil Pet.

Well enjoy your weekend and stay creative okay? See You Soon..

Beaches with white, pink, black and red sands…

    I think they look good, is the back one attached to anything yet? I’d probably make more black, or dark colors in other parts of the blanket to balance it out, or put him right in the middle? Idk, I think it looks good tho.

  5. Fantastic color combo. I love to mix yarns, especially in baby blankets. They like to feel different textures.
