Talavera Dreams
Persian Dreams by Jenise Hope
Needles & yarn
US 2 - 2.75 mm
madelinetosh Tosh Sock
5 skeins = 1975.0 yards (1805.9 meters)

06.01.16 - 6 left to finish! I set the afghan aside for a while but it’s time to pick it up and continue.

05.23.15 - Finished Chart #21. 16 hexagons completed and grafted together - 8 left to do, plus the border.

02.15.15 - For the contrasting colors I’ve used fingering/sock yarns from my stash as well as some new ones. Some of these are:

  • Dale of Norway Baby Ull
  • The Loopy Ewe Solid Series
  • Trekking XXL sock yarn
  • Jill Draper Makes Stuff
  • ShiBui Staccato
  • SandnesGarn Lanett
  • Madeline Tosh Merino Light

09.07.14 - After an earlier false start with a black background that I didn’t love I’ve restarted with the Tosh Sock background yarn and brighter colors and I’m much happier with the results. I plan to look at the bright and bold colors of Talavera pottery (e.g. as in the bottom picture) for inspiration for the afghan colors.
