A break from sewing Teddy !!


i love colours !
i love bright colours !
i love rainbow colours !

and i always wanted a nice pleasing planked

so i ordered me some yarn … was a long process to find and choose something :)

and then i found me a shop on eBay selling just what i was looking for … cotton ! :) with a wonderful shine to it :D


i worked out what pattern i want …


and the size of the afghan when finished - combined with the amount of colours - 13 - gave me 13 rows by 12 columns … 156 squares
here is the first row, with all colours


then i was able to calculate how much yarn i would need for the finished piece, and ordered the rest (now i hope i didn't miss calculate *laughs* )

some progress photos


and after about 90 hours i had this :


now an other 100 ? 150 ? don't know yet, hours to make the last 2 coloured rows
i keep you updated when its finished :)
