There's nothing like the cold, frosty winter evenings and weekends, with the log burner roaring away, to get me settled in for a bit of worthwhile 'knitting space'.
Having enjoyed making the 'Seaside Ripples Blanket' so much, I needed another quick fix of relaxing, destressing colour goodness to get my hook into. This next venture is the 'Cosy Stripe Blanket'; another bit of clever colour play from Lucy over at Attic24.
I'm already in love with the warmth generated by the gorgeous colour mix and the easy, but very satisfying pattern; consisting solely of trebles. Just perfect relaxation! Steaming ahead!
This has been a the weekend of new beginnings that I didn't have time for a couple of weeks ago at the real start to 2015. Having wound up the little sweater for Jess, I felt free to think about some new 'cast -ons'. I've learnt the hard way, that having too many WIPs on the needles is not a good plan, so apart from my longterm 'Sock Yarn Blankie' ( shown below), I try to have no more than three projects on the go at any one time.
I'll tell you more about the gorgeous project bag next time, when I will also be able to show you the start of some fabulously lovely socks.
Right better go and cast on!
