Colouring in

Sometimes you just need a spot of no-brainer comfort knitting, to ease yourself back into the working world. That's exactly what's happened to me this week, with the start of the new school term. I picked up my 64 Crayons blanket, and have been knitting away on a strip. Beautiful stripes of Noro yarn, with some unexpectedly pleasing colour combinations.

I have now finished three of the strips - two narrow and one wide. I thought it was about time I saw how they looked side by side.

Of course someone else thinks it's for her - we'll just humour her for the moment, shall we?!

I have my next two balls picked out and shall start a wide strip this evening. It's starting to feel just a touch autumnal in the evenings, and the idea of snuggling on the sofa with a cosy blanket is rather appealing! xxx

Looking very lovely, and so is your cat. How many balls of yarn does each strip take? I fancy making something similar myself for my new sofa.

Yummy Noro stripes. Nothing beats it for comfort knitting!

Yes, humouring is probably the best option! Your blanket is looking great; I love the colours, especially in the first photos.
