I have a bit of a colour overload here, but it has been very dreary and cold here today, so I was in need of a little brightening. :)
This is the thing I am working on at the moment, I call it the Skinny Stripe Blanket, just rows of sc in a lovely random patterning of colours. So simple, but I love the effect.
I am trying to do 10-20 rows a day, but I am falling behind a bit this week. :( Must keep plugging away, the rows are very soothing, just sc over and over again! ( they are soothing until they are boring, then I stop and do something else!)
Anyway, what else has been happening around here...hmmm, well I received a new yarn delivery for the shop today, something lovely and chunky and warm and wintery and interesting. It was too dull to photograph it, but I can't wait to get it in the shop and show you all. I've never made anything in chunky or super chunky yarn, I'll have to go and immerse myself in Ravelry for a while and find some new projects! Hopefully I will be able to show you tomorrow!
Oh, and I have a winner for the April giveaway! Yay!
Max chose a number between 1 and 189, and I counted down to that comment, and guess what?
Kate Eastwood the 5 balls of cotton are all yours!
Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter, I wish I could send a prize to you all!
(......and yes, I do have to deal with all these ends! I know I should have crocheted over them as I went, but I started doing that and I didn't like how one end of the stripe was thicker than the other! So I will weave them in at the end, surely it won't take that long..... :) )
Well, that's about all for now, not much too report really, hopefully I'll have more interesting posts for you all soon, I think I've been lacking a bit of posting inspiration recently, so I apologise for the slightly boring sameness to my posting, I guess that can happen when life follows a gentle rhythm, and patterns and routines repeat themselves over the months. I think it is called contentment, or something similar, just a happy life really. :)
How is life treating you at the moment?
Have a great day!
