Getting started

After having a rummage through my yarn stash I finally settled on quite a dark and rich theme, with cream and lemon added in to lighten it up. I've taken a picture of most of the yarn I'll use but I can't work out where on earth the lemon yarn is (I know I have a bag containing 10 skeins somewhere!) and I've also made up a stripe pattern I like (from the the random stripe generator.)

I've opted to just make a cot sized blanket to start with. I am notorious for starting with great enthusiasm, only to get distracted and disinterested within a short period of time. Hopefully I can get to the end of this project with the extra incentive of posting on this blog.

I'm the same way - I'm definitely concerned about finishing this huge project! But I'm confident. I love it. Can't wait to see your progress!

Yes, I tend to become distracted, too, but I did something to up the ante. I wrote my granddaughter (this ripple is for her) and told her to look here for something special. I think I'm definitely committed to this project now!
