Do you remember this?
In Wendy Aran wool.
It started off being called a Valentine’s Blanket, because I was making it for my love for Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day came and went.
So it became the Birthday Blanket.
His birthday is a distant memory.
So, jokingly, I called it his Funeral Blanket (yes, my sense of humour can, on occasion, be a little dark).
Then on Christmas Day he went and had a bloody heart attack!
So, I’m not finishing this one. It feels jinxed.
I started another, in one of my favourite yarns: Drops Andes. I figured, hey. On big fat circulars, back and forth, this will knit up quickly.
And it did. But it was soooooooooooooooo boring.
So I abandoned it and will use the wool for something else.
Now, I am making this, in Drops Nepal, and Drops Big Delight, with a 5mm crochet hook, and I. Am. Loving. It.
It’s fast, and it isn’t boring. A lot like my knitted cardigan, in one plain and one colour-changing yarn, I just love the way the colour graduates through it.
I’m already plotting the next 😉
