At last, after stashing the yarn for couple of months now, a new 'blankie' has officially been born. On finding out that little Sophie will indeed be welcoming a baby sister next March, it seemed fitting to make a start! I showed you the first stripe last time. Just feast your eyes on this snuggly, colourful, stripy goodness.......
It is just the best relaxation ever and so amazingly satisfying to see the colour combinations emerge, each one snuggling in so happily next to it's neighbour. Bliss!
I do need to get Sophie's little Dougie scarf completed soon though, as it is a Christmas gift for her. I have been managing a few rows here and there, but it is quite a lengthy process, as the scarf is made double width and then folded and seamed. It will give a lovely warm, thick fabric when complete.
I would prefer a fairy to wave her magic wand over it though, as the draw of the pretty 'blankie' stripes is just too great. I managed to get the majority of my schoolwork done yesterday, so this morning were able to go out and enjoy a stroll in the park with Oscar, soaking up the pale November sunshine and crunching through the leaves. Heaven!
