Wool on Sunday...

The baby blanket I was making for Abigail got put on the 'back burner' while I made the birthday bunting for Holly. But by the third week in May, I was back working on that knitting project. And except for one stripe, there was no more 'reverse knitting'; obviously I had finally got the hang of the pattern! Lol.
And it's now finished! All ready to hand over this weekend...

I used Paton's Cotton Blend and because I've made a total of 4 baby blankets in this yarn, I had a lot of part balls of this yarn left as well as a number of full balls, including the white. So there are 18 colours in this blankie...I was surprised how many colours I had! ( the pattern is the Bounce Blanket from Tin Can Knits)
I have started a new knitting project which I will donate to our Parish Art and Craft Show in July...

It's very 'early days' obviously...just an inch (2.5cm) of knitting on circular needles with 194 stitches.
And in other yarn related activities, I can see that I will be busy joining a lovely lot of donated squares into blankets ready to be distributed to the needy. It's been suggested that it will be a cold winter this year here in SE Queensland so my plans are to work on these for part of each evening.

Linking up with the Rainbow Hare blog for Wool on Sunday. This month Janine did a teeny tiny knitting project. 😉
