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

    That dream sounds amazing! And the blanket sounds pretty epic too.

      Thanks! The dream was pretty awesome, mostly for the colors that it gave me! There is really no words to properly describe it.
