321  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: Craft Your Daily Reflections--based on Leafcutter Designs Sky Scarf concept on: January 03, 2013 02:48:59 AM
Ok - I've finally picked colours, I've gone for 4 muted balls, a beige (to represent overcast days), light blue (bit of sky), dark blue (lots of sky) and a dark grey (for when it's a storm and really raining). My colours are on my blog post here: http://paperbeau.weebly.com/3/post/2013/01/sky-blanket-craft-1.html

I've picked the colours so that I can make a knitted blanket/throw which I can keep for a long time. I'll use the largest needles I have to try to make it a bit holey - I want to make a square for each month and then attach them together somehow into a blanket.

I've only ever knitted scarves (in one colour) before! Help! - do I need to keep all the colours going the whole time or just cut them off when I swap to a new colour? - Decision! I'm going to cut them if they aren't used within 5 days.

Also, I'll go there and back each day (2 rows so to make a square do I need to cast on 30 or 15 or 60 stitches? I think 30 but I'm really unsure , - I've found a website which says the ratio is about 4:5 stitches to rows, so that would be 24 stitches : 30 rows - is this right?  :s some help would be really appreciated.) 

Thanks in advance! You all seem so friendly I'm sure someone has the answers, or a link to a blog which does!

I would love to be part of this - I knitted my first two scarves this Winter and think this is just a gorgeous idea - I'm off to find wool Smiley

i love this idea of magnet storage - definitely will be installing in my new home when I move!

My suggestions: Use as plant pots, or... you liked the idea of the kids games - so maybe make shakers out of some of them with lentils, salt etc... start up your own samba percussion band Smiley

this is a lovely idea! I bet you could make really sweet Christmas decorations using the same method! Where did you get the circle punch from? Do you think it would work on handmade paper?
