Makings & Made

Monday, 19 March 2012

I have been on a bit of a quest of late to use up some of my yarn stash. Not easy when I look at some of the yarns I have purchased and wonder what the hell I was thinking when I bought them!  As time passes my preference heads towards quality not quantity and I will be looking to restock the stash with natural fibres rather than man made. Still, some of the choices have been OK.

This blanket I crocheted last week using up some of the pure new wool I had hidden away. It feels lovely and will come in handy as the days (and nights) start to get cooler.

A quick and easy way to use up some of the acrylics I had, the start of a lovely baby blanket. A pity I don't have a baby in mind for it...

A dishcloth I knitted up yesterday using Debbie's now famous pattern, found here. I have been reading Debbie's lovely blog for years, and I love seeing what's happening on her farm and watching the change in seasons on the opposite side of the world. Not to mention all the lovely things she makes!
