Well I don’t know of a funfair ride called ‘Flying Fingers’ but it seemed an apt title for this latest post about my Funfair Blanket. I joined in notyouraveragecrochet CAL on the 15th August. I think at that time 12 weeks of the project had been published and this weekend I completed the latest installment of Week 15. That’s 15 weeks in 24 days so you can see my fingers have been flying!
At the time of starting my blanket I was visiting my Mum who is working through a mountain of yarn donated by a friend who can no longer use it. She’s selling what she produces to raise funds for charity or donating the completed items to charity shops. I thought I would help her, so we gathered together a selection of similar weight yarns and ended up with 13 bright colours. Mum lives in a seaside town complete with beach-side amusements and a funfair and driving past the funfair I commented that it was as colourful as my bag of yarn so it has become my ‘Funfair Blanket’.
