Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

The blanket edging changes colour...





The diagonal baby blanket is still a work in progress.  I carried out my plan to knit the edging in 4 different colours.  Here is the first corner where I changed from green to yellow.  I'm liking the effect.  Next comes lilac, followed by pink.

I'm forging ahead on this blanket at the moment because a builder will descend on us soon to rip out our kitchen and install a new one....hopefully in time for Christmas! Living dangerously!

The colour change is very effective, Una. It sets iff the multicolour blanket really well.

You have left the kitchen very last minute Una I hope they get it finished in time! I have my fingers crossed for you. The border is looking very pretty I can't wait to see it finished. :) xx

Our daughter is up in Scotland this Christmas, so it was always going to be a quiet one here. We are just going to chill out and play it by ear.

Una said...

That was exactly my thinking. I might do this again in the future.

Una said...

Thank you. I hope so!

The builder is highly recommended and Hubby has seen some of his work. He works long days and doesn't need constant cups of tea. There is a very good chance it will be complete by Christmas. Famous last words...
