This week I have been continuing to work on the Pandemonium CAL. I have been loving it, it’s such a fun, relaxing and beautiful blanket to make 🙂 I’m now all caught up so have to wait for more. Next part (11) is due tomorrow.
Here it is at the end of part 9 on Sunday. I love my little pink tulips in a row 🙂
And here it is currently, with part 10 done and waiting for 11.
Did you see what’s in part 10?!?! Yes! Dragonflies! I was so excited when I realised what those 2 little gaps in the rows (at the end of part 9) were going to become! As you will know if you’ve read my blog for any length of time, I LOVE dragonflies and damselflies. I mean, I love most of nature, but dragons and damsels are right there at the top of my list. This CAL is making me so happy, and I am reassured that I made the right decision in changing CALs.
As I now have some waiting in between parts, I fancied making something else in between.

I was looking through the patterns I have and I found one called ‘Leila Sweater’ by Courtney A Clark of ilovetinderbox.com. I looked a the picture and thought, yes this looks good, I’ll make this. And then, when I looked closer at the pattern I realised it uses the same loopy braiding as we’ve done twice in the Pandemonium CAL… so that was it – it was meant to be! I bought a bunch of mint green yarn a while ago, so I’m using that:
