I've just finished the second ball of yarn on my Silk Garden 10 stitch blanket, and have matched up the next ball of yarn. I am definitely going to have to learn how to knit backwards, as I can see it getting pretty cumbersome, having to keep turning the knitting back and forth.
And talking of Silk Garden blankies, well done to those of you who spotted Henrycat getting delusions of grandeur this week. I caught him perched on top of the laundry basket, asleep on top of my Silk Garden Lizzy cardigan!! He did look comfy!
He gave us a bit of a scare this week, and had an overnight stay at the vets, but I'm pleased to say that he is absolutely fine now, just one of his lives gone I think!
My stash of sock yarn has been enhanced by a visit to the Laughing Yaffle's website. Ali's yarns are absolutely beautiful. Vibrant colours just begging to be knitted. Go and take a look - I bet you won't be able to resist the temptation! I had to laugh, as my mate Snoopydog bought the exact same skein of yarn as me, on the left. (She had more self control than me tho', and managed to stop at one!)
Charlotte's birthday socks are coming along well, and they will be my project for the weekend. Nice and easy to pick up at odd moments. I've also been busy with my Valentine's swap, but it's a secret at the moment. I'll reveal all once my swappee has received her 'parcel of lurve'. See you next week!
