Notes

I couldn’t resist hearts

Not sure if I will need more yarns!

Note: 10 grams of yarn makes 7 tiny coloured squares

I will add more pictures of the yarns and progress so far soon!

I usually knit muted, neutral, natural colours so this is an opportunity to make a colourful project, using beautiful hand dyed, hand painted yarns and support the wonderful Indie dyers that create them!

The title of this was nearly my ‘Hedgerow’ blanket, but I do have a few other lovely yarns joy
