Time for another update on the Cathedral Rose Afghan project. You can view other updates HERE if you so desire.
Last update was just after Fairford where I had done a wee bit of crocheting at the Airshow.
Since then I have put the large hexagons to one side as they are for much later in the project, and I have edged all the purple pieces with black.
I then made a load of (well, 8) black triangles. It's a tricky old business crocheting with black in a badly lit room you know. I have a daylight spotlight lamp but you have to shine it right on the work to see where you are.
These looked so much like moustaches that I was tempted to stick one to my lip and take a selfie photo. But I didn't as I am not that silly......
..........actually, that's a lie, of course I did!
Then it was time to assemble.
Looking good so far, but very wrinkly and unflat, so I thought I should attempt to block it. In the past i have blocked real wool by washing it and laying it out neatly, but I've never blocked acrylic. I read that it can be steam blocked, and indeed it can.
Work to date.
