Joining in with Janine over at Rainbow Hare for Wool on Sundays. In recent months I have been sorting through the cupboards and boxes where I store my yarn stash...and oh my goodness !!
It was amazing how much yarn I had...and some I had actually forgotten that I had bought it! But as I 'found' yarns I sorted them into categories/colours/plys etc, so my stash is so much better organised now.
So when I heard the news that a friend's daughter and her husband were expecting her first child at 38 after many years of trying unsuccessfully to start a family, my first thought was that I would knit a baby blanket. And unbelievably I started looking at my favourite online yarn shops???? To buy MORE yarn 🙄
Then I remembered how much soft white yarn I'd come across in the weeks before...
So I decided that I would use this waffle slipstitch pattern and make use of the leftover colours from my granddaughter's baby blanket with some of the white yarn from my stash for the main colour.
So I will be able to make a nice gift for J and I's baby without spending any money...I like that!!! I will be working on this project throughout this month so it will be ready for this little 'Summer baby'...a little girl due in late November.
