Five on Friday

Hello all you lovely people I hope that you have all had a great week, we had lovely Spring sunshine yesterday what a difference a bit of sunshine makes I quite felt my spirits lifting.  
Another thing that has lifted my spirits this week is the completion of the Mini Rings of Change and I can't wait to share my pictures with you so for this weeks Five on Friday I thought I would show you nine pictures haha I'm not cheating honest that is one picture and 4 pairs of pictures....




Inside


and..
 Outside soaking up a bit of that lovely sunshine

 Close up's of the middle and the edging


 Where it's destined right next to my bed to match the violet meadow blanket.

This week I worked rounds...

41 - Stylecraft Special Chunky in shade Emperor 1425
42 -  Sirdar Bonus Chunky in neon 884

For this project I have used a 5.5 mm hook and the following five colours of
Stylecraft Special chunky in shades 
1425 Emperor -100 grams
1064 meadow - 100 grams
1061 Plum - 150 grams
1023 Raspberry - 125 grams
1241 Fondant - 120 grams
Two colours of Sirdar bonus chunky in shades 
884 neon - 100 grams
742 Leaf Green - 120 grams

The finished rug measures 115cm across 


I really love my rug it has turned out just as nice as I thought it would and I will make another one of these one day in maybe a different yarn, it would look lovely in cotton don't you think? 


I really enjoyed doing this CAL it was mostly very easy and the pattern is well written.

A huge thanks to Kate for hosting do pop along to her blog and see more lovely versions of this lovely design.

Kate will be hosting another CAL at the start of April and this time she will be making The Mini Spirals of Change another beautiful design by Frank O'Randle.

Have a great weekend! :)

Joining Amy for her 5 on Friday
