According to Ravelry, Christmas Eve is the day that most WIPs (Works in Progress in knitterspeak) are finished. I imagine a hoard of knitters, crochters and weavers frantically beavering away to get that last handmade present finished. Well, I didn’t meet that particular deadline but I have already tucked this year’s first FO (finished object) under my (knitted) belt. Meet the Ripple Blanket
I’m gradually adding to my collection of
luridly brightly coloured accessories in the conservatory. It all started a couple of years ago when I was having a relapse with M.E. and feeling a bit low, so I decided I needed a bit of colour in my life and the crochet manmade yarn adventure began. I do love wool, you, as a loyal reader know this by now, but you can’t beat something that can be thrown into the washing machine at the drop of a hat (or cup of tea) without worry. The cheap as chips yarn is a bonus too.
For all wool purists out there (I know at least one of you!) you’ll be relieved to know that the next WIP is a poncho in Blue Face Leicester wool. Undyed. Phew.
Meanwhile on Sarah there is a purple and green warp that has turned into a Caithness inspired piece, with little wooly clouds of Jacob fleece
