The large granny square blanket, as become large granny squareS blanket, it quickly became obvious the colour pattern I had in mind would not work very well on a single large granny square, so I'm making 4 large ones and then I'll join them together. Working up very quickly, over half way finished, but alas not quite enough yarn; so hardships of all hardships, I've had to buy more yarn!
Speaking of buying yarn, the King Cole Riot arrived today.......oh gosh, I'm in love. I haven ten balls of this gorgeousness, from which I hope to make a skirt.
All the tub needed was a new cover; hooking one was an obvious choice; I used some of the anchor magicline cotton I picked up from my local yarn shop for 99p per ball. I absolutely love the autumny colourway, and must check how much I have left of this, because I think I have to make Rye another top out of it...but anyway, here's the covered tub.
And now as Rye is at his dad's for the night, I shall settle back with watching episodes of Fringe, and crochet up a few test motifs to help me decide which one to make my skirt out of :-) Soooo exciting!
