Said Clarice Bean.
Despite the advent of central heating, the open plan sitting room / kitchen is absolutely freezing. Something to do with the wind whistling down the chimney, round my ears and out through the gaps around the back door. Yes, my main living space is a wind tunnel.
Of course we need to keep badgering the draught-proofing people who were supposed to make us windproof back in May when the central heating arrived. We have rung them 3 times this week.
But meantime my mind is on a blanket. An aesthetically-pleasing, snuggley blanket which we can all crawl underneath while I knit, my daughter reads, my son watches TV and FL does the crossword. That would be one big blanket! So I will settle for a two-person comforter. We can fight for it!
I am currently auditioning patterns.
I really like the look of the Barn-Raising squares from “Knitalong” but I don’t want to buy the book for that one pattern. This is a good one because it would allow me to use up leftover sock wool.
And I love the Hemlong Ring. Fabulous texture, thick and warm. Isobel made a gorgeous purple one - mmmm! But a bit small perhaps...
And there’s crochet of course. Babette?
Babette in lots of colours of Cascade 220? Or leftover sock wool?
Thanks for all the lovely comments about my shetland triangle! I knitted it for a wedding that I am now not going to (kids not invited) and I am not sure if my workplace is ready for wrap-style fashion! So I have no immediate plans for more lace-knitting. Not until I find occasions to wear what I knit! But I've definitely got over my fear of lace!
