Exchange of minis for our cozy memories blanket or crochet blanket or whatever you use your minis for.

We’re looking to make the swap between North and South (Portugal) but other countries are more than welcome to participate as well. I’m thinking I’ll give everyone until the 25th of November to sign up and then I’ll assign swap partners and then you will have until the 15th of December to send your partner the minis.

We’re looking to swap of 10 minis of 10g of sock weight yarn

Pinwheel Blanket – Row 1-3 of 8 – Overview

170521-pinwheel-001

The picture above shows how the blanket looked last time I posted about it sometime towards the end of March. Since the above picture was taken I a put the blanket in hibernation as there were a lot of other projects on the needles, but it came back out towards the end of August when I didn’t want to start a new project and decided to work on this again.

Yarn Used per row so far:

Row 1: 132g = 536.1m / 587.7yds (including the border) and 32.732 sts (also including the border)

Row 2: 122g = 507.2m / 556.1yds (including the border) and 33.044 sts (also including the border)

Row 3: 119g = 497.7m / 545yds (including the border) and 33.044 sts (also including the border)

TOTAL OF: 373g = 1540.7m / 1688.8

 

Over the coming month I’ll be showcasing the rest of the blocks I’ve been knitting and attaching to the blanket.
