Wool on Sunday

The last Wool on Sunday for 2018! Joining in with Janine’s Rainbow Hare blog’s monthly link up to share all things yarny. 
A few months ago I wrote about starting a number of  throws but just knitting about 15cm before rolling them up and popping them into ziplock bags. The idea being that I would have no excuse for procrastinating about casting on a few hundred stitches and setting a pattern when I needed to make a new rug; all that was already done! 
And so it was a few weeks ago when DD1 asked whether it was too late to request one of my knitted throws which she wanted to give Carrie’s daycare mum for Christmas. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜œ
‘No problem’, I said smugly, ‘when do you need it by?’ I had 5 weeks; plenty of time. So I got out one of the bagged projects; the old favourite chevron garter stitch. 



So it’s well on the way now and DD1 is very happy with the colours...which are my favourites of course! Lol
Also a few months ago I bought some tickets in the raffle that another knitting charity K4C ( Knitting for Charity) was running. A big surprise was that I won a prize! 



I still don’t know what I might make; it is a very thick cotton yarn, possibly equivalent to a 14 ply.



At the moment I’m just enjoying the fact that I won something!

Maria, the yarn that you won looks soft and cuddly. I'm sure you'll come up with something creative to make with it and I'm looking forward to seeing what it is - enjoy. k^^

The yarn as it is so thick will make some lovely pom poms in half the time due to the thickness. Always a delight to win something.

I could feel your pleasure in pulling out one of your pre-started throws Maria! It's a beautiful combination of colours and the pattern is gorgeous.
Congrats on winning something as lovely as that - you're always giving to others, enjoy that feeling :D)

The Chevron Blanket is growing quickly and is a pretty colour...
How nice to have won the chunky cotton yarn.. I would also just enjoy the prize for awhile as like you I don't win things often either...

Congratulations on winning that yarn, Maria. It certainly does look thick but I am sure you will make something very practical out of it. I hope all your family is keeping well.
