I have been spending a few days up in Stamford helping out whilst Tim was away, so during nap time I managed a get a bit of knitting done. I have spent some time on the Ten Stitch Blanket managing a complete another round. This blanket will be mainly the reds and creams, which I actually think work well, the yarn I used for the first 4 rounds is quite stiff and makes the blanket feel quite heavy, but hopefully it will be balanced out by the aran yarn which I'm using now. At least the blanket won't slip off during use!
Before going up to Stamford I cast on Lace Shawl by Sharon Miller for Rowan. I am using a Texere 2ply (72% Kid Mohair 28% Nylon) this yarn was a swap for some pattern books a while back which I had in my stash. I've not knitted anything large with this kind of yarn before; I have managed the cast on 299 stitches and 2 rows of pattern, I have a feeling this will take some time
Whilst bored with what I was doing; I cast on this simple pram blanket the other week and just did a few rows here and there. Have no plans for it, so it will more than likely go to one of the African Children Charities.
I also plan to join a KAL on Ravelry it a simple raglan jumper but the plan is for us all to personalise the jumper then compare the results.
As usual for more WIPs head over to Tamis or Yarn Along
