Strawberry Moon

09/06/2017 § 1 Comment

June’s full moon is called the Strawberry Moon.  I’ve been out, down to the headland overlooking Mounts Bay here in Cornwall tonight, but there’s thick cloud and a bit of drizzle in the air so it seems the full moon is shy tonight.

I’ve named my new crochet blanket Strawberry Moon as the colours are like crushed strawberries and cream (clotted of course), with blues and soft misty greys, warm reds and soft pinks.

Earlier on this evening before the drizzle set in, I took Strawberry Moon for a short walk from the seaside cottage where she’s been hooked up this week, to the harbour for some photos. She attracted quite a bit of attention!  I used Sirdar Aura in shades 130, 131 and 132  where the soft colours blend and flow through the yarn like the ebb and flow of the waves under a summer sunset.  A 6.5 hook and corner to corner crochet meant the first rows grew fast then as I reached just over 1.8m on the 2 sides, progress was slower but just as relaxing and enjoyable.

I’ve loved making this blanket that will forever remind me of my June holiday in Porthleven, when the Strawberry Moon hid behind the clouds but my memories kept me warm!

    Actually, I’ve been meaning to try out that particular stitch myself some time… It’s nice to see that it works up so quickly. BTW, GREAT colour mix! And SCENERY!
