Dancing Diamonds – My border

Oh dear! You may have read in my last post about the problems I was having with my hand. My wrist was obviously overstretched and a tendon was also causing me problems. A bandage helped me for the wrist, but unfortunately it didn’t work for the tendon. So it really took forever to finish the border on my Dancing Diamonds blanket. But it is done now! Sigh … I am in love …

For the border I deviated a little from Ana’s pattern. Since I used less colours overall I thought it would look better with just one stripe of Raspberry.

Here my details

For those who like to follow my colour placement and like to download a pdf – I updated the file in my previous post with all the information about the border. You can find it here

Have a nice time 💕

Dancing Diamonds Cal – Part 1

First of all, a big SORRY to all of you who follow my blog. Unfortunately, you already got a message about a new post a few hours ago. But what you saw was probably only the beginning of this post … It seems there have been some updates and all the technology has conspired against me today! But I did it and won – em, almost – but here it is …

Today the Dancing Diamonds Cal from Ana Morais Soares / One Skein of Love starts. It runs for 5 weeks and every Thursday – from now until 01. June – a new part will be published. If you haven’t got the pattern so far, it is available in Ana‘s Ravelry shop.

I finally managed to start the border on my test version this week. I didn’t get much further than the photo shows though …

I already showed you the colours I am using in my previous post:
Grey, Mushroom, Raspberry and Pale Rose, all Stylecraft Special DK.

For those who are interested in my colour way, so far my yarn amounts are:

And here my colour scheme:

Pattern 1

throughout the whole blanket:

Pattern 2

That‘s all for today – I am still struggling with the technique, so I better stop now and try to learn how this update works.

Have a lovely day 💕
