Over the Winter I turned the above Yarn into a snuggle warn blanket. I have stashed this yarn for a very long time, picking up my first ten balls whilst on holiday in the Peak District three years ago! I wanted a pure fibre yarn, something warming for cold winter nights. I then spend time picking up a ball here and to be honest, I've really no idea how many I eventually bought, I really lost count!
The pattern was from Attic 24 which so was well written it was just a dream to follow. I kept it safe, choosing my usual colour pallette. I went with Snow, Enamel, Flour, Barley, Tudor Rose, Raspberry, Cypress, Pier, Earth and Mocha.
It was a bit of a frustrating project due to my own ability - I realised about 3/4 of the way through that the bit I was working on was a lot larger than the beginning! So out came lots and lots of rows, but I wanted it to be right so it was the best decision. I do find it strange with a large project that it becomes mind numbingly boring, but within a few days of finishing it, I miss it, terribly. What's that about?!
I finished it off with a boarder of Scallops and it's big enough to cover the length of our king sized bed and then about half way up. I'm pretty pleased with it and it really is super warm. I expected to store this away for next Winter in our Blanket Box, but considering the weather at the moment, it's still going to get some use for a little while. I'm definitely not complaining about this!
