On the needles... and hook...

LOVE blanket number one has ground to a halt due to a lack of cream aran... so I had to start another...
Ive rumaged out a pile of various wool blend DKs and started. This time I am working random strips keeping the eyelet pattern going and just stopping each colour as and when Ive had enough of looking at it on the hook anymore!! It is going to be much lighterweight this time so a longer project...
The SUMMER GARDEN blanket is complete, and was ribbon wrapped and given as a present to my Mother. She was thrilled to bits with it!
On the knitting front, Im a little lost...
I gathered some yarns and am considering a jumper adventure...
Main colour will be the Camel Ethical Twist, hideous on me if it was entirely this colour, but as a background colour for those other shades its subtle and just the job!
I also rather like HUSH by Sarah Hatton out of Rowan Studio issue fifteen. Maybe I need one of those as well??? That rather yummy berry red merino DK might be the ticket for that one...
Whilst on a woolly vien I must confess utter dissapointment as the WOOL man did not arrive in Fairysteps land on Friday. Poor chap was unwell but has promised to 'send' bits in the post... Im taking a small 2 man tent up to the postbox later today...


Im off to pilfer materials... film later this afternoon me thinks as Im quite wore out today!
Ive a mass of packing to do tommorow morning, more fruit to pick, and then sew for England after lunch and most probably late into the evening... and the week is chock a block... better rest today!


When on earth are these extra set of arms going to arrive? I sent off for them ages ago...

  1. I've been revisiting some of your old posts and feel very much like my old self again. Isn't that funny?

    I've been knitting this weekend too and feel very refreshed after taking the time out to get on with a blanket project that has lasted over a year!

    Good luck with the wool delivery, hope it comes soon.x

  2. Once you have completed one strip of blocks do you bind off and then start another row of strips all to be sew together at the end after you have enough of them? Or do you start the next row at the end of the last block?

  3. Yes, I'm wondering where mine have got to as well...perhaps the 'armory' is 'short-handed' and can't keep up with demand?! Oh dear...... ;-)

  4. I love that Tam o Shanter, beret in those beautiful heather colours in the pattern.
