Last night I finally found time to sit down and sew the last of the loose ends into my granny squared crochet blanket. This labour of love has taken me about a year to complete. It was such a good way of using up my some of my wool oddments. I usually prefer to knit with the Sublime but I am surprised at how heavy it is. I am so pleased with the end result and feel I can now move onto another project without having the guilt of it laying there incomplete.
Whilst sorting my bag of wool out earlier I found this shawl I started knitting for myself over the winter. I loved knitting with this wool and I remember being pleased with the loftiness of my knitting. I downloaded the pattern from the internet but I struggled as my knitting grew the needles just aren't long enough and I struggled to see what I was doing and kept making mistakes. I must pick up another set of circular needles as I really want to finish this project.
I have literally just started this new cardigan for Amelie. I love working in 4ply, the end result is always so satisfying with neat little stitches but it can also be a bit slow going. This pattern is from birth to 7 years - it doesn't look too big so I am hoping it won't take me too long to complete.
I am so tempted to start yet another project but just know I need to finish what I have started first and I really want a new handbag this month instead! I really like the look of this Cosmic Sweater Pattern by Wool and the gang.
