Tale of the white blanket

ThatGirlWhoCrochets-WhiteWoolMy cousin came to me to ask to a blanket for her new lounge. Delighted I asked what colour she had in mind. Imagining lovely blues, green, and greys, my dreams were slowly dashed when we requested white. Why? I thought to myself! At least it’s not solid black, in which case I would have sent her a bill for my glasses which I would have needed! After trying to talk her out of it, and failing, I began to look for some yarn. She requested a chunky blanket, which is good because i’ll be able to finish it quickly! I found this Red Heart yarn on http://www.loveknitting.com and quickly ordered it! Super fast shipping too, especially to my island home! So 12 lovely squishy soft balls of yarn are in my possession. They are aran weight so should crochet up lovely and thick. Wish me well as I bravely step into the world of an all white blanket!

Sari silk yarn

IMG_1907

I’ve been looking at these sari silk yarns for a while now and finally decided to buy some. Surprisingly it took less and a month to arrive from India! Ordering yarn online is always a challenge, I prefer to touch it and make sure it’s not too thick or thin. Also I like to see the yarn is quality and not cheap looking.

After opening my package I found 10 skeins of delicious yarn! I love the colour, the metallic threads and the highlights of blue and green. It’s a great rainbow and yet it still works. The yarn is soft and has a great texture too.

I’ll work on a blanket with this soon. I think I haven’t ordered enough but I shall manage with what I have!
