Being poorly and spending all my time in my cosy corner has definitely increased my woolly-productivity
During the recent London adventure we went to Loop - such a fabulous shop - and I bought some Malabrigo Silky Merino.....
I'm now totally in love with this wool and just want more and more - it is gorgeous!
And I really love the Baktus scarf and pretty-ified Toast mittens that it became.
It was extravagant - but not too bad when you think of what you could pay for a lovely soft scarf and mittens, and definitely not bad when you think about how much I enjoyed every minute of knitting it.
I've also managed to finish another sock (the orange one)
and had to photograph it very quickly, along with another I found in my knitting basket, because my feet were FREEZING and I was desperate to put them on! I have spent the last week ONLY wearing handknit socks - they are so cosy and lovely - I just need to knit lots more!
I even managed to dig out my ripple blanket, sew in all the ends (thousands) and add a couple of rows.
It's going to stay on the sofa now as it is big enough to be useful and now the ends are tidied up I can just add a row whenever I feel like it.
Finally, although I haven't been feeling well enough to play on the sewing machine, I have been looking at my Christmas quilt and need your advice.....
It is small enough to benefit from a border so
a) do you think it should have one or not?
and if so should it be
b) the red?
c) the turquoise?
What do you reckon?
