More Sweet Peas

Evening all!

Just a short post tonight for two reasons. Firstly I’ve already talked Sweet Peas to you a couple of times and I don’t want to bore you (although maybe you wouldn’t be bored of all these beautiful colours anyway) and secondly because I only have sixteen percent battery on my iPad!

Anyway, for those of you who’ve been reading the blog for a while. You may remember that I was following a crochet-along back at the beginning of the year run by Attic24, crochet blogger extraordinaire, colour crazy and lover of Sweet Peas. She designed a striped blanket inspired by the colours of her beloved Sweet Peas, and each week she published the order of the next stripes.

It was all this talk of Sweet Peas on Attic24’s blog that made me decide to grow my own this year.

You can really see from this picture how well she matched the colours. The yarn is Stylecraft Special double knit and it’s super squishy and soft.

I kept up for approximately the first day of the crochet-along but then life got in the way, and I was more than slightly hindered by my favourite felines who love its squishiness, and I got more and more behind and then when the crochet-along finished, there was no pressure at all to try to catch up so I still haven’t finished it! It is quite a size though!

Anyway, I’ve just braved the weather to go and cut some more Sweet Peas to bring inside. I’ve been putting it off because it seems to be constantly raining, but I was worried that if I left them much longer they might go to seed and I’d get no more beautiful blooms. After arranging them, I thought it was high time that I photographed my Sweet Peas from the garden with my crochet Sweet Pea in the house, just in case I don’t get any more (this is a thought that I had before I just unearthed the photo of the seed packet above that says they should flower until October!)

So, here you go, Sweet Peas on my Sweet Pea blanket.

Pretty aren’t they? The way the weather’s going, I’d better get hooking again and finish the blanket because I might need it!

    Sweet peas in August! Rad! My niece loves them, but the season is so brief. The brief season and the intensive timing make them even more special when they finally bloom.
