This is the biggest project I have undertaken. It's a (very) colourful and huge mandala (I'm holding off on posting a photo of it until this round is finished). I am following a blog from an amazing designer who has shared an easy to follow pattern which comes with youtube videos. I've now learnt how to read a pattern becuase of this, and have tried stitches that I couldn't have imagined being able to do before. It's really special to me and I am looking forward to sharing the bigger picture of it some day

Love this discussion thread idea, @CheerBear. Hi @Former-Member. As I said in the discussion elsewhere the other night, I am an occasional knitter. I have a jumper for my companion that I've already knitted but only partly sewn up. It's been sitting on a chair for a while in that state. It's getting closer to the cooler time up here when a light jumper such as this one would be good to wear. The yarn is half wool and half bamboo. The pattern is a chunky variation on moss stitch. The colour is indigo blue (but a lighter colour than you might imagine). It's the first jumper I've knitted since I was six weeks in hospital for crohns surgery in 1985. I will post a picture of it when it's finished.

wow @CheerBear fantastic colours. Colours definitely be something very close to your heart. These designs, your rainbow, funshine.. makes sense because I am sure they make you feel good to look at them and create them, they sure do to me and I'm not even a feely type.
They are just so full of cheer and joy really beautiful. Thank you for sharing them.

I love it @CheerBear. I don't really know how to crochet; actually I tried but it turned out crap. I am knitting at tyhe moment. I am knitting a baby blanket for my first grandchild but i don't like it so i am about to pull it apart and start again.
I really love all the colours you have used. So clever. I am also going to knit some booties and baby hat for a friend's first grandson to be born in August. I have some blue wool left over so I will do that first.
Can't wait to see the final stage of this beautiful blanket
