Well here it is finally, in all its colorful glory, my blanket finished, washed and on my bed. It is for the couch, but I had to put it on my bed last night because I needed the comfort for I am not well. Don’t know what is wrong but yesterday I got up and was fine, when I got out of the shower I had a rash over most of my body. Got on with my day but developed a back ache and headache then became really tired. Last night I had the worst heartburn in the top of my stomach to the point where I was almost crying. After 10 hours sleep I am feeling a lot better but look pretty awful, puffy eyes and a little bit of a sore throat and this horrid red rash over most of my body……arrrrhhhh. Anyway I digress, so, with a feeling of pride……. TA DAH ♥
This took around 10 weeks I think, I feel a little lost now, but already have yarn on hook again, this time for someone else, although I made one for me as practice. Will show you when said person has received it. Then I really must start my dads socks, am leaving it rather late so I hope they will be easy to knit.
I am also making an Apple cosy, have ‘frogged’ it so many times, I think it is the color as it is a dark purple and I can’t see the stitches properly and it didn’t help when I was doing US dc instead of UK dc, it ended up almost big enough for a grapefruit. I started hooking it up in a pretty bright Aqua, and it has worked, what do you think?? (I decided to finish it after I wrote about it hehe)
After my dad’s socks I want to make a ripple blanket and a couple of cushions, actually there is so much I want to make and the yarn is there waiting, lots of baby knits are on the list and I have such beautiful yarns to knit up into little things, here is a peek at one in particular.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend, I’m half way through mine already.
