Do you know Julie, over at Little Woollie? She's having a crochet-a-long of the mixed stitch stripey blanket kind. I thought that as we were coming out of Winter and as I had just finished a major crochet blanket that I would screw up my eyes and put my fingers in my ears so I wouldn't be tempted by this fabulous project, but I have no will power and here I am about ready to jump right in!!
We are very lucky in our little country town that we have a shop that sells wool, and very lucky that the owner of this shop is happy to order in any colours that I need/want/love! So while I had decided a little while ago to join in this project, I've been waiting for the wool to come in and now it has.
These are my colours. These colours call to me all the time. Very different to Julie's bright and cheery colours, which are gorgeous, but these are my colours and the colours I will love to work with. I'm using Australian 8 ply wool by Cleckheaton 'Country' and Shepherd 'Colour 4 Me'. They are just so scrum-diddly-umptious that I can't wait to get started!!
This year was my year for focusing on finishing all those unfinished projects I have piling up, finishing one a month (which reminds me that August is almost over and I've not been working on one of those projects, opps!) and here I am starting something brand, spanking new, but there you go, that's just the kind of girl I am!! Oh, and while I'm confessing to new projects I'm knitting my hubby a scarf too ...
Any confessions of the crafty kind you want to get off your chest?
Have a lovely day, Trudy
