I missed last week as I was too busy with other things, so I have made a fair inroads on the Ten Stitch, almost finished just one more repeat all round. I'm very pleased with it and I hope my youngest is too.
I have been asked to make four more so I have started putting together some yarn combos - greens and cream, navy, lilac and cream, burgundy, browns and cream. Its funny when you are knitting these, when adding the next colour I get panicky thinking it doesn't go, but once you've done a bit and then lay it out you can see that it all looks fine. I love that my stash of charity yarn is reducing, so these blankets are costing next to nothing. I plan to make knitted slippers to go with them. Then the recipent will have everything they need for a cosy winter cuddle up on the sofa.
This is my other work in progress, I still have the gloss painting to do, the bit I hate. I am taking the day off tomorrow to try and get it finished as its windows and doors so I need to have them open all day. I'm pleased with the wall colour, hadn't realised how sick of the yellow I was.
