I am in trouble off hubby for buying yet more yarn. I couldn’t resist. Its 100% cotton and lovely and soft. I plan on using it to make a granny square blanket for my mothers 60th at Christmas. For 700g it was only £15 so a great bargain too!
I have also recently started a quick blanket for my sons bed. It’s almost time to whip the duvets on and have sheets and blankets for when its warm at night. I wanted something fun and quick so I’ve started with squares…..this is my new way of blocking them as I get fed up pinning them all down to my ironing board. What do you think?? Basic nails whacked in a
bit of old wood!
I am also making this lovely blanket for my cousins baby. I am unsure of the colours as we do not know the sex of the baby yet, but I am loving the combination. If I do decide its a bit boyish I may just keep it myself!
I did some gardening late last week and planted all my plants into pots. I love having loads of pots around, especially ones that do not match. There are many more to do you yet. However, I am reluctant to do them just yet as after the recent downpours, they are suffering a little.
