Have had too many projects to finish before I can start on the blanket but this is the yarn that I intend to use. All that remains is for me to learn how to crotchet. Bought this at the X'mas Liberty's sale where they were reduced to £2 a ball... which meant that I had to buy loads of it. Love the colours, earthy and natural. Oh what fun awaits, looking at everyone's posts on this blog just makes me itch to start!
