My apologies for the lack of spacing in my intro...I'm obviously doing something wrong..... :((
No apologies necessary Bev. Thank you to lead us into the first month of 2020. Let the search begin for those sad, and forgotten balls of yarn. I have plenty, pretty colors though.
Thanks Diana. I shall be doing some 'scavenging' in my stash. :))
An inspiring start to the New Year - I'm off to start excavating all those boxes, bags, drawers, etc. If I don't reappear for some time, it will be because I'm buried under a landslide of yarn :))
Hahaha Lesley. I have visions of your legs dangling out of boxes as you stand on your head to get to the bottom. :))
Thank you Bev for an inspiring intro, a great start to 2020!
Like you and many other members, I love working with variegated / self patterning yarn, and a I prefer using Aran for my blankets. One of my favourite yarns is popular with other members too, it is a ‘Magic Aran’. I have to stop myself from using it too often, and I have held back from using it since November 2018.... it has been sitting quietly in my stash for over a year! I always buy enough for at least 2 blankets, as I don’t like to be without it, but finally it made it onto to my hook before Christmas, to start the new year......
Stunning blankets, Chris - I love the blend of purple with the variegated yarn. I'd never heard of Magic Aran (just googled it), but it's clearly something else I have to add to my shopping list!
Stunning blankets, Christine and TWO of them . What a start of the first day of the New Year. Precious. Gorgeous colours.
Aran weight or worsted is what I use to knit. It's thick and snugly. Love the result every time. Thanks for these beauties, Christine.
Thank you Diana, but I’m sorry I can’t take the credit for two, it’s only one blanket. I just did a closer view of the centre panel, as the purple didn’t show up well in the whole blanket photo.
I know # 2 is coming... Thanks again Christine.
Wehey this is a lovely blanket Chris. Yummy variegated wool. You're well prepared for sure.
You will need to go shopping again, soon, Chris.... you should always have these yarns on standby. :))
The colour combo is glorious. I am so pleased you were able to use them this month. They certainly have made a MAGICAL blanket. :))
