Changing Tides – Week 5

It’s week 5 already! The weeks are flying by and so many beautiful blankets are being made! 🙂 Here’s a round-up of blankets being shared over on Instagram this week…

For those of you who have purchased the PDF pattern on Ravelry it has now been updated to include Week 5 in both UK and US terms…

Ravelry – Changing Tides Blanket

The rounds this week are inspired by the cliffs of my local coastline on the south coast of England. Where the land meets the sea and where the tides come in, often right up to touch the base of these cliffs. Some are eroding at fast rates. They are a beautiful sight but can be dangerous too. These are the famous ‘Seven Sisters’ in East Sussex…IMG_1403An here’s a YouTube clip from the Coastguard agency showing how dangerous these cliffs really can be! Our local beach has had very similar cliff falls over the years…

We love walking with our Salty here although of course she’s always on a lead nearer the cliff edges…IMG_1435(2)

And there are other cliffs nearby too…

These are on the Isle of Wight…

And these famous cliffs are in West Bay, Dorset…IMG_4198(Edited)

  1. Hey there, to anyone thinking of starting this blanket…what’s holding you back? I would never have attempted this a year ago and here I am, one Seaside Stash buster down and Week 5 of the Changing Tides CAL complete and loving it! Thank you Eleanora ❤

  2. Does anyone else eagerly finish each CAL on the day it’s posted and then are disappointed because you have to wait a week for the next? I tell myself I’m going to space it out so I have something to work on for a few days, but I just can’t do it. I am absolutely loving this, and I must say – it’s so much prettier in person! Thank you, thank you for the time and effort that went into this masterpiece!
