This week was full of excitement for me, including knitting-related. I went to Paris, and managed to visit four (!) yarn shops, and buy some yarn.
My resolution at first was that I am not going to touch the new yarn before I finish at least one of my WIPs. Ha! I cannot resist. Jaipur (top picture) is a yarn I had my eye on for a year now, with an idea of what I would like to do with it (another dress, I am afraid). So it looks like the beige dress is going to be put on hold for now. I already did two swatches, and I like the one using bigger hook better – I have even blocked it already.
I also moved forward with the cushion cover – I found the missing yarn to finish the front side. Only now I cannot find my darning needle, so it’s not sewn. I don’t like the light-blue diamond in the center, but it’s too late now.
I’m about 1/3 done with the second side, with a month to go, so I think I’m pretty safe here:
I also made progress on the blanket – the second stripe is about 3/4 done. I need a total of three stripes, and them some sort of an edging – ideally by mid-April.
Sorry about blurry photos, something wrong with my camera today…
