No Squares today, but I have my 83rd Ta - Dah! 'Pig Tails!'.
I'm very pleased to be showing you my 83rd Ta - Dah today! This is another 'special' Blanket because Laura in the Netherlands very kindly donated these Squares for our SIBOL project. She has named the Blanket 'Pigtails' because of the middle Square! A great name thank you Laura!.
The Squares are just so pretty and I think this Blanket has got to be one of my favourites. My favourite colours are pink and green and this Blanket has turned out so lovely. Oh golly I can't wait to show you. Here goes...
It always amazes me when Ladies send me enough Squares to make a whole Blanket and I am always so grateful.
Laura would you like to name this 'Sunshine Blanket' please? Thank you for the beautiful Squares!
I'm sure you will agree Lauras' Squares were brilliant!
No Squares today. Can I remind you quite a few of our Challenges end at the end of August, so please do get your Squares in now.
Did you know there was a new knitting magazine out from the same company as Crochet Today? It really looks a great magazine. Now I did try to remember the name, but can't.....Something Knitting and it has got the word 'Life' in. Sorry I can't remember. But there was some great patterns inside. I don't really knit so I never bought it. But I did pick up the latest Crochet Today magazine. It's in W.H. Smith.
I also picked up some great bargains at The House of Fraser today. A pack of (10) Patons Double Knitting for £6.75. In the House of Fraser they have a rack of 'Sale' yarn. Well the prices are all knocked down but when I went to the till the Lady said there was an extra 20% off, so it is worth enquiring. I picked up a pack of Peach and a pack of Blue.
I hope to show you SIBOL 84 that 'Jean Nock' assembled for SIBOL, but it started raining as I was taking photos, so I'll show you very soon.
Thank you Laura very much for the beautiful Squares too!
