February Fiber Fest
and finally, drum roll, I have six balls of Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran to knit a baby blanket.
The colour is light teal, its gorgeous and again a rubbish photograph. I am feeling dog tired today though obviously not too tired to knit and these yarns are a great comfort. I may never go back to cotton again but I will try to take some better photographs once I get my strength back.

Finished items January
Its for Matthew who was born early in January. Its size one year as apparently he has quite a lot of baby clothes. I'll give it to his Dad next time our office IT system goes haywire and he comes in to fix it. The pattern is by Louisa Harding from Miss Bea's Rainy Day, a gorgeous little book from Rowan. Speaking of which my Rowan magazine came today, it was waiting when I got back from yoga so I sat down with a coffee and had good browse. Lots of desirable patterns and some whacky ones too, maybe when I reduce my stash a bit more I could embark on something. But that won't be for ages as I was at the closing down wool shop near my office yesterday and came back with 5 x 100g balls of yellow cotton dk and 9 x 100g balls of dark blue aran cotton, all half price. Maybe one of these quantities might match up with a pattern in the Rowan magazine but its bound to one of the whacky ones.
