Here are pictures of the finished Galaxy of Change rug which I started here. I did about 50 of the 103 rows in the pattern, plus 3 of a border which I made up. I wanted to have points around the edge.
Sadly, I am not a good enough photographer to capture the vibrancy of the colours of Bouvardia yarn in Lollypop. I’s really weird and lovely.
As I mentioned here, I was inspired to use Bouvardia by the beautiful work of Julie Salter of this Facebook group. Look at her unfinished Galaxy of Change in Bouvardia Tokyo.
But somehow mine was turning out really dull.
So I abandoned it and again, inspired by Julie’s work, I tried the Lollypop. Much better! Here is Julie’s Tides of Change. Her photo shows the colours better than mine do. She is a talented lady!
I think I have to make another Frank O’Randle rug now. But in a variegated yarn like Bouvardia, or in solid colours, maybe with an ombre look from dark to light?? Either way that means I have to buy more wool. Oh no!
