My replacement 20mm circular needle has not yet arrived in the post so I can’t get on and finish my humungous blanket . However, the wool for my second blanket came yesterday..
The light’s not great today and this is not as grey as it looks here but a soft, duck egg blue colour with flecks of brown, black and beige.
In the meantime, to fill the time, I have gone to the other end of the scale and got out my 2.5mm circulars to make another pair of socks. I’m supposed to be knitting these along with my friend but I’ve raced ahead a bit because I know, once those big needles arrive, I’ll be back under the blanket.
Another pair of two at a time, toe up socks. I love photographing them at this stage as they look like a little bikini top or a pair of sunglasses!
It took me so long to get a colour match with this wool (Drops Fabel) that I almost gave up. I had to unravel a lot before I could find it and then the unraveled yarn got into a great big tangle and I had to spend ages undoing knots and sorting it out.
I must be getting better at knitting on magic loop because I managed to get as far as this whilst watching my Dexter box set which, if you’ve seen it, is quite incredible really as it’s hard to take your eyes off the screen when engrossed in the goings on in the life of a likeable serial killer 😉
