- or the "throw of Christmas" to be more precise! We are doing a knitted blanket square swap on the Creative Living forum at the moment; we each choose what we would like, the other participants knit them and send them. I asked for 2 x 5" squares in white or cream, with a specific project in mind. I wanted to edge them in holly colours of red and green, and I started on the borders this morning whilst I drank my coffee after breakfast. The squares that ahve been contributed so far are really lovely, and I've done two myself, so I've a few to be getting on with, then await the last arrivals and put them all together. I'm pleased with the colours, and it looks quite Christmassy; will only be brought out at Christmas, to keep it seasonally special :)
These dropped off the needles this week too:
They are the "fetching" mitt pattern from knitty; I wore my last pair out! The colours don't seem to show up here too well - it's a lovely clear turquoise, edged with some of the handspun pink I did last week. They're warm in as far as they go, literally, so this week will see me making a pair of full mittens, as teh cold snap is forecast to continue for a while yet.
