This month I have been mostly being annoyed by Royal Mail. Specifically, not knowing whether, if I order the yarn that I need to finish Baby Granny Blanket, it will actually arrive due to their stupid epic industrial action. Seriously.
On a brighter note, this has given me the opportunity to sneakily start work on the next project in my queue – the Baby Ripple. This one intended for an actual baby (unless I steal it for myself to just have and admire!). It’s a little ripple, my lovely Cotton-Ease on a 4.5mm hook, in which were supposed to be unisex, but actually turned out to be slighty more boyish colours.
I must admit, I’m ever-so-slightly in love
In other yarn news, I have been stashing. Bargain-hunting new yarn, and squirrelling it away for my next ideas.
King Cole Merino DK – almost exactly as lovely as the Rowan Pure Wool, but on sale at more than half the price. Success! I have big plans for this. Big SECRET blanket-like plans.
Couldn’t resist this combo! I’m planning another smaller blanket – chunky and snuggly – maybe long stripes?
And finally, the most AMAZING shade of green I think I’ve ever seen! Like a big, shiny Granny Smith! Going to make some fingerless gloves with this, I think. There should be enough for two pairs, but I can’t decide whether to make a green pair and a black pair, or a green/black striped pair! Wonder if it’d stretch to 3 pairs? Hmmm.
Anyway, that’s all my yarn porn for today. Hope to be back soon with more projects!
