New Year's Knitting
As requested by Fran, here is the Lizard Ridge square made using the pink ball of Noro that you so kindly sent me. Isn't it great?! These colours really jump out at you! I have decided to get Lizard finished as a priority now. Only another 8 'squares' left to go! I need more Noro (oh what a shame I'll have to buy more yarn) but I have very ingeniously made a ball up using all the scraps and leftovers. So that's one less to buy!
Looks like my New Year's Resolution of not buying more yarn has already gone out of the window! Like the diet one as well. Quick, not had chocolate for 10 mins. Need some quickly before I fade away...
Oh and the other piece of knitting on the picture is the Moebius Shawl using the Qiviut. I'm trying very hard to follow the pattern, but me and lace don't go very well together. Not sure if I've got the right number of stitches (think I have, but 359 stitches all joined up together on a twisted circular needle are a bit hard to count)My pattern doesn't look much the one photographed either, but hopefully if I just keep going it will be similar-ish before too long.
I keep meaning to say about the blankets too. I think I now have enough squares to make 2 more blankets (well at least I will have once the spare American ones come over here), so please don't send any more - unless of course you have already knitted some, then by all means send them along. It's been great fun making these blankets and I'm so pleased that you've all joined in too. We have raised over £1,200 so far (please tell me you agree with that amount Emma) and Oliver now has his new wheel chair. Big thank-yous all round!
