A few weeks ago I blogged about our Textiles teacher trying to entice me into showing some of the students at our school how to knit when she saw me working on the blanket for my great-niece. I've tried to avoid her ever since and I think I may have got away with it!
Anyway, the blanket is now finished so I thought it only fair to show it to you. When I saw the colours my niece had chosen, I wasn't totally convinced how it would look as a blanket but now it is finished I think she chose well and having one row of chunky wool randomly through the blanket gives it a wavy texture. I just have a few ends to finish off and then I shall be handing it over. I'm keeping back a few balls of wool to knit a little owl that I saw on Rachel's blog.
I've enjoyed getting my knitting needles out of retirement and need to find some more projects to keep me occupied .... any ideas?
