I've just got back from stroking lots of lovely yarn, Woodbine Wools, a local based company had an open evening with discounted yarn. I was restrained, and am thus very proud of myself, but I have bought a little something ;)
Anyway, hayfever is driving me mad and giving me a pounding head and blurry irritated eyes, so I'm off to bed but first I want to share my current WIP.
My man was watching me work on my granny stripe blanket in bed and requested that I make a blanket as a gift for his friend's baby who has a Baptism coming up. Now this is the guy who rarely cares what I am making, so of course I went out and got some suitable yarn to start crocheting up a storm. I chose another of Attic24's patterns - her neat ripple, and this is it so far.
The colours I ended up selecting remind me of a beach, the little boy's parents didn't find out what gender he was before he was born so I went with the fact that a lot of his bedding etc is (hopefully) neutral colours, and then added some blues into the mix. It's very restful I think. I just hope his parents like it.
