I am joining in with Ginny and the Yarn Along ladies today.
So, I have brought out my crochet along blanket for the first time in weeks, so slack of me! I have been busy with the star stitch blanket, so this one has taken a back seat, and I also had hit a point where I couldn't decide on what colour to use next. I 'm hoping to add another 10 or so rows then do another update, although I am sure anyone making this with me must be fed up with waiting and got on with their own pattern.
I have just added a dark blue stripe, and I think it gives it a lift, there are a lot of mid tone colours in this blanket!
I have been looking at Lucinda Guy's Northern Knits Gifts this week, and found a few lovely things to add to my to do list........
.........this cardigan, I am planning to be the queen of the frock and cardi combo this winter, and want to knit a couple of cute ones for myself. This is quite a big ask as I've never knit anything to wear myself.
........I love this knitted doll! I can see a few of these with different coloured dresses and hair styles making their way into my knitting this winter.......
.......and this chicken door stop. I love it, although I think the colour work in the body might be a tad beyond my skill level!
So there you have it, no fiction for this week, I'm still trying to choose something to read and haven't had a chance to look up some recommended books, Maybe tomorrow I'll do that.
What are you reading and making?
Have a lovely day!
PS If you would like to enter my yarny give away there is still plenty of time! Please do!
