More finished projects: Blankie and cuffs

by Suw on June 5, 2019

Herewith my second round of finished projects!

The colour work blanket had originally been intended to be one for our bed, but I chose the wrong yarn. The acrylic might be cheap and cheerful, but each square rolls up into a tube which is just far too annoying. So I downgraded it to a little blankie for the kitties, and finished it up with an i-cord join between squares and an i-cord edging.

The blanket is currently on Kevin’s grandma’s rocking chair.

I then ran out of knitting to do, which was tragic, so I whipped up a pair of cuffs for next winter. The pair I have, in baby alpaca, got a lot of wear last winter, keeping that bit between my coat sleeve and my gloves warm, so I wanted a second, slightly longer pair with a slit for my thumb.

I have to say that I really like them, and they’ll be great for cooler days when full gloves aren’t necessary.

Since my last update, I have also made progress on two picture frames and the chest of drawers, all of which only have minor things left to do on them. And I restarted work on the Knight & Snail embroidery, which I’m hoping to finish by July when I want to take it to the UK to give to my friend.

It feels very good to get two projects finished, and four more progressed!
