There has been less progress on my Cathedral Blanket than I would have liked since my last post. This is due to my having miscalculated on the amount of yarn I would need for my edging and seaming! So I've had to stop, tantalisingly close to the finish line - only inches left on the final row of edging! You can just about see how close I am in the photo below.
Hopefully I can get an extra ball of black yarn soon and finish this off by next week.
As I'm sure you guessed, just because I had to stop working on the blanket, it doesn't mean I had to stop crocheting! After a brief period of afghan-induced ennui (i.e. me feeling really tired for one evening and unable to contemplate the starting of a new project while in the grips of yarn-deficiency) I soon dug some more DK out of my stash and started working on not one, but 2 new projects.
The first is to be another blanket (yes, I know another blanket - after I said I wouldn't!) using various pastel shades that I have been collecting recently. The colours are:
Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in
Airforce blue 18028
Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK in
Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK in:
However, I have a horrible feeling that the Debbie Bliss yarn may be about to be discontinued, which would be a shame as it's a lovely yarn. It seems to be reduced or out of stock at all the online retailers I have checked today. If anyone reading this is in the know on that score, let me know!
My second project is a simple crochet scarf using a grey 4 ply wool. More on that next time though!
