Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here. On the days it hasn’t been raining we’ve enjoyed hanging out in the yard while our dad takes pictures of some of our fall leaves.

We also want to dedicate this post to our dear friend Arty from the LLB Gang who sadly went to the Bridge just over a week ago. He was a great friend to everyone in Blogville and will be dearly missed by everyone, especially his family.

Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here to let you see my most recent crochet completion. After the previous two complicated afghans I wanted to work on something easy. Over a year ago I purchased a kit for the Attic 24 Moorland Stripe Blanket and I knew that would be the perfect project for my next afghan.

The Moorland Blanket was a Crochet-A-Long (CAL) that ran starting in January of 2017. I’ve followed the Attic 24 blog for quite a few years and love the striped blankets she produces for her CALs. Each one is inspired from nature and things she finds around her living in England. The Moorland blanket…

…is made using fifteen shades of yarn, the colours are inspired by the Yorkshire moorland in late summer when the hills are covered in vibrant swathes of purple heather.

I love how as you progress making this blanket from the bottom to the top you can just see the beautiful landscape.

The beginning colors of green, brown and just a hint of purple.

7555 - Moorland Blanket - Middle colors - lr

The middle colors show more shades of purple with the greens and browns fading out.

7557 - Moorland Blanket - Ending colors - lr

The last section reaches the sky with lots of blues and a hint of purple and green.

I enjoyed working the 115 stripes of the Neat Wave pattern. Each stripe is two rows so there were a lot of ends to weave in, which I did about every dozen stripes along the way. As with all her projects Lucy chose the 15 colors from the Stylecraft Special DK line. I really enjoy working with this yarn and wish it was more readily available in this country.

The simple border worked in four of the colors.

The blanket was finished off with just four stripes of color. It’s difficult to see the green part of the border since the burgundy color was worked on top of it. This blanket will be wonderful to use to keep warm while watching TV or taking a nap.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie and Walter here. We’ve been having fun getting out in the yard between the rain.

This stump is a great spot for posing. The viburnum behind us hasn’t changed color or dropped its leaves yet. Most of our trees have dropped all their leaves but the shrubs are still hanging on to them.

We’re joining The Cat on My Head for their Selfie Sunday blog hop. You should check out the hop to see some of the other selfies. Thanks for stopping by.
