I received an order of yarn from Deramores in the United Kingdom, ordered on the 5th of May and arrived on the 10th of May, cost to ship to Canada $4.86, I was very impressed. I unpacked and the colours jumped out at me, the picture of them on the website did not do them any justice whatsoever. The picture below does not do the colours any justice but here they are all stacked up on my bed.
I am knitting a blanket for Isak and didn’t want to start a project with the yarn until I finished. Isak very graciously said I could put his blanket on hold and work on it during my knit nights. I immediately dived in and started on the Granny Stripe blanket. Here it is in the beginning – photo taken on Sunday at Waves on Main in Vancouver, the hot chocolate was pretty good too.
I have done about 15 double rows in the next pics – it is fun trying to decide what colour you are going to use next. I do take a peek at Lucy’s blanket here for some inspiration and I am sure some of my stripes and pattern are just like hers. I love her blanket and I hope if she ever sees this she will take it as a compliment!
Gotta have one from the Iphone too!
Since this photo was taken I have added
6 more colours, just bombing away on it.
