Tuesday's Tallies....


I've finaly had time this week to carry on with my ripple blanket. I've managed to get 12 colours done which adds up to 24 rows.I really do love working on this blanket ,I love the wool (Debbie Bliss Cashmerino), the colours and the pattern. It is very cold in the U.K. at the moment with below zero temperatures but my blanket is keeping me warm as I work on it, it's got the snuggle factor.

Take a look over at Gingerbread Girl and see how everyone is getting on with their WIP's, you may even fancy joining in.
I would like to say a big thank you to Kashi who gave me the Liebster award, Kashi won my first giveaway and we have been friends ever since. Kashi paid me such lovely compliments, I was truly touched and honoured, thank you Kashi. I'm suppose to pass it on to 5 people but the people I would pass it onto have already received one but I would like to pass it onto my friend Gina who loves stamping as much as I do, take a look here at her wonderful cards. She has a stamp collection that would make anyone jealous !!!!


Happy Crafting

Beautiful, I love those colors! I am taking a class this month to learn to knit a sweater and it's so much fun to see it taking shape.

Hi Deb...you are making fantastic progress.. you made a good choice doing a blanket..my little cotton squares just don't have the snuggle factor...maybe they will when I am on the sewing up phase.. Congratulations on the Liebster Award... so well deserved! :)x

Suzanne said...

Debbie Bliss Cashmerino.....wanties! That yarn is hard to come by here in Holland, you can only order and it's very very expensive. I would like hold it and see it in real life with posh yarn like this.

But my oh my, it must be soooo worth it. So soft, so beautiful, so elegant. sigh...kinda jalous of your blanket haha. Good job on the color choice, it looks amazing so far.

I always think how lovely the colours you use are, I wish my eye was as good as yours.
