I made progress today – the linen stitch blanket is finished and ends are woven in.
- Chained 140
- Hook size (I)
- Yarn is Lions Brand Mandala Ombré – colorway Happy – 4 skeins used
- Linen stitch pattern is from a kit but you find find a similar one online at this link.
I also finished up the doll quilt and the shamrock coaster set. More masks were sewn – 9 just need ties or elastic now but I have another 8 to sew I think and then I’ll be able to get back to the problem quilt.
WOW! A beautiful finish. Someone will be very excited to get this.
I love these colors!
Sounds like enough activity to clear your mind of problems so the return will have a fresh start feeling. Love the bright and cheerful linen stitch blanket.
That’s beautiful. I will be trying that stitch for sure. Those colors!
Such a vibrant and lovely finish on this!! Nice work hugs, Julierose
LOVE that blanket of cheer!!
The blanket is a sweet finish Mary. There is always something on the horizon. A quilting friend has dropped off 120 61/2 inch (sort of)rail fence blocks to me. There are 20 of each of the rainbow colours. Now how can I put them together.? Thinking.
Love, love, love the Afghan. Can you share info on size needle, kind and amount of yarn you used? Also how many stitches you cast on. I love doing linen stitch.
The linen stitch blanket is fabulous!! I think I said before that it made me think of a pinata. Or maybe fiesta ware plates. Such happy colors!
Love this one, so bright and cheeful! I’ve come to love linen stitch. I made a few dishcloths with it, just recently made a scarf with it, but ripped it out because it was to wide and short. Will remake it longer and narrower. Have to fit that in around a year long applique course with Jeana Kimball…and work and life. Looking forward to retiring in a couple of years so I can focus on the important stuff!
Beautiful blanket almost makes me want to try crochet again. For some reason I always feel awkward so stick to my knitting.
Love the colours so cheerful and welcoming
I did break down and buy some Ombre yarn for 2 blankets. This is one of the colors that I got. I wonder if they plan to make other colors. It seems like they have had only one set of colors in this yarn. I love how yours turned out. Linen stitch seems perfect for this yarn.
your afghan is beautiful, very colorful.
Quelles belles couleurs réconfortantes!
