Tuesday's Tallies......and some more new yarn.

Hello, I'm back with this week's Tuesday's Tallies, I've finished all the squares for my Springtime Throw and have a total of 780. I'm now in the process of joining them together but I've got to admit it's slow going, it's really hurting my hands for some reason, so can only do a little bit at a time.
Here's how it's looking.


Over the weekend I treated myself to some more new yarn, I love Rooster almerino dk so I decided to buy the rest of the colours in the range. Mmmm, now need to decide what my next project is going to be, using this gorgeous yarn.


I also bought some Rowan Cotton Handknit, such pretty colours.


The pink and lavender were at the bargain price of £2.00 a ball from the House of Fraser, they are also selling KnitPro crochet hooks and knitting needles at half price.I love a bargain !!!!

Uh, I love your new yarn. And this blanket. Gosh, you've got patience. So many squares, so small!

I treated myself to some Rowan Pure Wool DK and Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK as I'm planning a traditional Granny Square Blanket....

Maybe joining them is more repetitive than making the little squares, but I find joining the least fun bit of making things like this.

I love your wool, I am so envious of how neat it all looks :)
