Guess what! It's done! Hooray! I could have kept on going and going and going and going. I love it! Let's hope our little grandaughter will love it too! Rippling is just the most relaxing thing ever. Add the excitement of colour changes and it's almost perfect! The finished blanket is quite big and hopefully will last her for many years to come. It can be a cot blanket, a 'brighten up your bed' blanket or just a lovely snuggly 'curl up on the sofa' blanket. I wonder what it WILL become? I've still got some yarn left, so I may start another or I may make cushions. Can't quite decide. Have a look.......
Here's my favourite colour slice .....
AND some yarn left!
The sun came out to play this afternoon, which was most welcome after the previous twenty-four hours of rain. The bluebells.....and whitebells.... appreciated it's warmth too...
.... and so did Oscar, who spent the afternoon 'chilling'!
I started the second 'Rainbow Sock'. I have to admit, it was good to get back onto the 2.5's again. I had a slight mishap though. I'd done completed the rib and about the first inch of pattern, when it suddenly dawned on me that I was knitting the wrong pattern!!!!! Good job I noticed before I had gone very much further, or I would NOT have been a very happy bunny. All was well though. I soon ripped back and put the wrong pattern safely away out of sight..... just in case! Must have been the effect of the rare sunshine on Snoopydog's grey matter :)
Oh! I must just show you a little purchase I made recently, that I can't take my eyes off. I spotted this jacket online, weeks ago and eventually decided that I couldn't live without it. It's from Orvis and I just love the pretty, cotton patchwork. The colours are just gorgeous!
It's still hanging in the bedroom, because I don't want to shut all those pretty squares just yet!!! I NEED colour!
Here's hoping everyone has a fun-filled, colourful week!!!!! Enjoy!
