A visit with Mrs. Weasley…

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!

Hugs,

Sheri

Weasley inspiration…

So much time has flown by!  I must admit that I have thought of posting but always ended up collapsing into my snuggly bed or indulgently picked up my my hooks instead.  Of course, this has been after work or days filled with company.  But I am digressing. Now for our topic.

I recently, ok the last few hours, caught wind of a few posts on knitting a Weasley blanket.  My curiosity getting the better of me, I jumped on Google to find more information…

And fell in love!  I mean seriously!  These images bring back such fond memories of nieces, nephews, my Mom, friends and moments spent with hubby.  Of the years past, watching the actors grow up along side all the children I my life.

Not to mention that we, every fiber artist and yarn lover, has yearned to have a set of enchanted knitting needles.

So now, having fallen in love with Mrs. Weasley’s wonderful fiber creations all over again, I am beginning to plot the creating of my very own Weasley blanket.  I am sure this will take time and I foresee myself shamelessly begging my friends everywhere for their scrap sock yarn.  I also see posts in my future of squares of Weasley inspired love.

In the meantime, I hope everyone has been well and know I have lurked about a wee bit trying to keep up-to-date.

Hugs,

Sheri
