Current knitting...

A combination of Deramores having a sale on their 4ply wool (85p a ball!) and discovering Mochimochi Land patterns (this book is sitting patiently in my Amazon wishlist) means my next knitting projects might well be teeny tiny ones...
First though, I need to finish the two big ones I've got going!  Yes, I'm knitting yet another chevron baby blanket.  I love this pattern so much, it's great for doing in front of the TV at night.  Tam's cousin had a baby last month so I really need to get moving on this...  I'm using five different colours - purple, yellow and shades of pink.  I'm not really a fan of pink but I like them all together.
My second WIP has been going since before Christmas.  It's a scarf for my friend and I'm about two thirds done.  I'm using this pattern from Lion Brand and I HATE it.  It's not complicated but I somehow keep ending up with the wrong number of stitches and having to backtrack or knit two together to get it back to normal.  I've been knitting it like crazy the past few days to try and get it finished so hopefully I can stop looking at it soon...

  2. Wool on sale is always a weakness of mine. Loving that chevron blanket and tops for you for knitting it, me and knitting don't get on so well. Much more at home with a crochet hook!
