|this is what I need a cupboard!|
Is it just me or do all knitters hoard wool? My husband asked where I was going last night in my PJs, its ok I said just to get a ball of wool out of the boot of my car! He said ‘do you keep sheep in there too!’ It was at that moment I thought I have more wool than there are hours to knit it all! I have a few bags in the loft, a bag by my desk at work, a project with me on the go, in an old blanket box in the spare room, in my craft room, a plastic storage box under the bed oh and yes in the boot of my car! Is that too much wool for one person to keep? You see I have all these plans to knit lots of projects then along comes another bargain and I just have to grab it. I have a cardigan on the go, a jumper, a scarf and now a blanket. A bit like this one patchwork-blanket or maybe this one Seaside Blanket The blanket will use up lots of oddments of DK wool in the loft, well that’s what I told him ;-)
A bargain yarn I thought you'd be interested in Patons Pompero for 89p a ball at Kemps Woolshop (I don't get any discounts for recommending these!) A nice soft wool ideal for scarfs but 30 deg machine wash. I'm currently knitting a scarf in a horseshoe lace pattern which is quite easy to knit once you get the hang of it, the colour is sort of raspberry. This will be for my boat holiday in October to wrap up in the chilly mornings.
