I have been looking and thinking so much about my Weasley blanket that I dreamed about it. I took a train to the Weasley’s and was welcomed by Mrs. Weasley. We had a rather long visit over tea and fibery goodness. She had several projects in the making , of course, and I worked on my one. We talked about everything and anything and through the course of the visit several of the kids came and went. It was a very pleasant and colourful dream indeed. It definitely defined what I expected in this project. First, this will be a long and relaxed project…. happening here and there. Secondly, it will be all scrappy sock yarns. Even if I have to beg friends shamelessly for their snippets of leftover yarns. Third, I will not settle on one stitch nor style only the size will matter. I have already begun to delve into the fibery fun of the 3×4 inch rectangle loveliness. I hope by sticking to the same size it will feel like a rag quilt (that is what Ron’s blanket reminded me of) but by making them a bit smaller I can use up more scrap.
And so I have begun! The first rectangle is crocheted in a half double lengthwise. The second I decided to practice some basic knitting. When I cast off this will be my very first finished knit piece and that makes this little project even more special.
Happy Summer to you all!
