Here it is so far! I have to say, the colours are looking a little dark and the khaki green is looking brown, but nevertheless you get a flavour of the progress made. I must admit to be a teensy weensy bit addicted to rippling. The mantra has become.... just one more stripe, just one more stripe, just one more stripe! It's so satisfying watching the colour change from stripe to stripe and noticing how each change puts a whole different perspective on the blanket as a whole. I'm LOVING it!
Mr Snoops has worn his first pair of knitted socks this week and, believe it or believe it not, is a total convert. Now who would ever have thought it? Definitely not old Snoops! He has waxed lyrical about the comfort and declared the need for more! AS we were passing our local yarn store on Saturday morning I suggested we strike whilst the iron is hot and select the yarn for the next pair. No time to waste! He chose the above colourway, which I believe is one of this season's Opal offerings. This yarn is ideal for socks, as it contains polyamide for strength. Quite a good choice, don't you think?
I just loved this colour way too, and as I have quite a queue of ever hopeful family members waiting to offer some socks a forever home, I thought I'd drop in the basket too. Should keep me out of mischief!
