Teacup Lane

Thank goodness for this very useful blog post!

As I said in my last post, I started work on the Sunshine and Shadow Throw from the Melody Griffiths book I bought. I actually started it again this evening, because I'd gauged it too tightly (way too used to tiny stitches in amigurumi!) and I'm much happier with the outcome.

Reworked centre square

I then had a slight problem with working out how to attach the next squares. Now reading back over the pattern, it was entirely me being a complete idiot and misreading things (I blame tiredness) but I got super confused. I managed to find Teacup Lane through some pictures of a finished throw on Ravelry, and found the blog owner, Sandy, had some really decent images and descriptions on the entry. As soon as I saw her pictures and compared it back to the pattern, it immediately clicked and I worked out what I'd done wrong.

So, a massive thank you to Sandy and your fabulous skills!


  1. I'm glad I was able to help you! Sometimes I have to put the work down and try again later and other times I have to just practice the stitch/pattern until I finally "get" it. I love this throw...I use it in our travel van all the time. I've been thinking of making another one in this pattern but different colors.

    1. Your finished blanket is absolutely gorgeous! I hope mine turns out as nice, as I want to send it to a friend that's moved away. Fingers crossed!

      I think this would look awesome in any colour tbh!
