In January I always get a case of ‘must use up the stash’. So I went through our stash book and found that we only have two entries for 4/8 cotton. Perfect, I could find a project that used up 3 cones of lime green and 5 balls of navy blue.
The balls of navy blue cotton have been kicking around for a long time in the stash and they had picked up a lot of other fibres and fluff. But a quick pass over with a lint roller and the balls look like new.
The Crackle design that I created had a very long repeat, it is one of the hallmarks of Crackle. So for the 30 inch runner I made the repeat smaller with large diamonds. The repeat still ended up being 13.5 inches long because of the pattern and the grist of the yarn. The 30 inch runner only got two pattern repeats making it a little shorter then I hoped.
BBC that 12 new types of clouds have made it into the International Cloud Atlas. I may not have captured it well but it really looked like the Asperitas Cloud.
