Wool on Sunday

On the first Sunday of each month I usually join in with another blogger’s ‘Wool on Sunday’ post where anything to do with yarn can be written up as a blog post and linked via a widget on the Rainbow Hare blog.
I’m a bit late but nevertheless here’s my first WoS post for 2019.
Firstly my most recent finish; the throw I started in late November.

Yeah...similar colours to others I’ve made lol. This year ‘the plan’ is to continue to make similar throws to use up the yarn stash, especially oddments of yarn. I made quite a few last year but there’s still a lot of yarn to use up. 
Next in this post is a big surprise from DsD1 who crossstitched this for me for Christmas. She only took up stitching in the latter part of last year...

I suspect it’s a take on the ‘Live fast and die young.....’ line uttered by John Derek in the 1949 movie ‘ Knock on Any Door’ although also sometimes (wrongly) attributed to James Dean according to Google 😉. 

And DsD2 and her husband gave me some beautiful hand dyed yarn which they bought in New Zealand. 

On the needles at the moment is yet another chevron garter stitch throw. There’s a lot of sport on TV here in Australia at the moment which DH watches for hours with the aircon going so I sit and knit in the lovely cool room with him. Unlike him I don’t shout at the TV or give coaching advice to the players. Lol

Another beautiful throw Maria, very pretty colour combination.

Is there some possum in that NZ yarn? It should be very soft and warm if there is.

Great throw Maria, those colours always look fantastic. The hand dyed yarn looks gorgeous too. I have an armchair ref too! xx

Jackie said...

I am doing the same thing. Trying to use up all the odd bits of yarn in the stash. Your throw looks like the colours were planned much better than anything of mine.

God bless.
