Lovely, simple, sweet granny bunting. I knew I didn't have much time to dedicate to this project so I wanted to produce a few triangles that I could personalise, and hopefully I'll be able to spot them easily when I visit Yarndale in September.
I live in Lancashire which lies next door to Yorkshire. The Lancashire emblem is the red rose and Yorkshires is the white rose - the heraldic symbols used during the War of the Roses - which are still in use today. Thankfully that happened many, many years ago so what better way to come together and unite our passion for the good of all yarn-kind. Hurrah!!
Here's my Lancashire Red Rose. I'm really pleased with how they look. I may do some more but with a solid granny border.
Had to include this one too just for the beautiful blue sky - we've had the most glorious week of sunshine here the past week - a second Hurrah!
I had to make some more...just had to. They are SUPER addictive! This time though I wanted to make multi-coloured ones, and what better combo than rainbow colours. Such a great way of using up some acrylic yarn I purchased a few years back. On their own each colour is quite garish but once worked together they harmonize beautifully... so much so I think I'll make some birthday bunting with this colour scheme - both my girls loved them. Here they are...
I love the iridescent discs on them - look a bit like raindrops, don't you think? They add a bit of blingy sparkle so they should be easy to spot....fingers crossed for a sunny day at Yarndale. Can't wait!! X
P.s. If you want to make the Roses the pattern can be found here.
