I had the day off work today and was able to spend it relaxing and starting my next crochet project. It's another blanket - after this I really must make something that is not a blanket! In my defence this blanket idea has been lurking in my head for nearly 2 years now, so I think its about time it had its day!
I'm calling it my cathedral blanket, but its really inspired by stained glass windows in general. Whenever S and I visit anywhere with a cathedral or church, we always take a look. I've seen some beautiful stained glass windows on these visits: these are from a small Chapel in the grounds of Edinburgh Castle, which we visited last summer:
My plan is to make granny squares and join them using black yarn to create a similar effect to a stained glass window. I've chosen lots of bright colours, as well as the left overs in my stash to create this, and already I have a small pile of granny squares! I'm making small squares to get the effect of little pieces of glass.
I think its going to be a lot of fun to make, and I look forward to sharing its progress with you!
