I shouldn't, but I have...



I know I shouldn't, but I have.. started another project that is. I was determined not to start anything else until I had finished my ripple blanket, but to be honest it has got a little boring!!
Whilst at the knit and natter group at my local yarn shop, I spotted this gorgeous wool, in fact I think it spotted me as it seemed to be jumping about on the shelf every time I looked up and whenever I passed it whispered " buy me please" in such a sweet voice, how could I not.

Hopefully this will turn out to be a big chunky flower scarf, with all those colours it should match everything I own.




I have to admit that as well as buying the wool I had to buy the pattern book also to go with it, so many beautiful knit and crochet patterns.

I keep finding myself looking at these cosy looking poncho's, do I need one?  Yes I think I do!
The pattern book in case you neeeed one to is by Twilleys of Stamford, unfortunately I couldn't get a link to work, I am sure it would be easy enough to find in a search engine.
I have dedicated this weekend just to the RIPPLE, so you should see something resembling a blanket on my next post.
Speak soon x

You have to have more than one project on the go. That's what being creative is all about. :-)
I love your new wool and I know if I'd been in that shop, it would have leaped out at me and jumped right into my bag. Looking forward to seeing what you make.
Have a fantastic weekend.

Oh I am the same I have so many half finished things lying around it's such a shame. I am like a magpie, my eye goes straight to the next shiny thing and I am off in a different direction! I love that scarf though it is incredible, the wool is perfect it would match everything I have too, perfect colours for this time of year!

hi Jacey, I love your new scarf - and YES of course it was calling out to you. So glad the same happens to me too. lol. As for the poncho - every girl must have one, at least! What a lovely pattern too. I love your cushion and your ripple blanket colours are very cosy. Have a great week!

The wool you bought is so nice; I really like the combination of the colours (YES, there is purple in it!!) and you have chosen the perfect pattern for it; that is going to be a gorgeous chunky flower scarf.
And for the poncho's; of course you need one; every girl does.
Good luck with the ripple!

Hi just me again, yes that Kusadama ball was a pain and a faff to do but not difficult, just lots of folds, lots of glue and a bit of luck mixed in!

Hi hunni
Of course you can't have just one project on the go. It's just not possible hehehe. I'm always chopping and changing from one project to another. I don't blame you for having to buy that yarn it really does look yummy.
Hope you are well
(((hugs)))

beautiful yarn!
and I agree... nothing wrong with having more than one project going at one time.

looking forward to seeing the finished ripple blanket, though :)
