Earlier this year I decided to do some charity knitting to build up my confidence. My goal this year was to provide enough squares to build a blanket for a charity helping children in Syria. To this end, I am using all my bits of wool to knit squares. I never thought I'd run out of part balls of wool. So when in Leeds this week, I popped into a shop to buy some more wool. The wool below was on a Manager's Special and I should have wondered why!!!!! Don't get me wrong it is soft and knits up lovely but I just don't like the way the colours fall. In the ball it is fine - not a colour I would usually buy (urgh Green),
(Anni trying to help - yup, she's the black thing in the photo below)
Cast on - MMM maybe it'll be ok.
Nope, I just don't like it. I guess I like my colours to be more in blocks and it is too messy for me. I am sure it'll look lovely added to a blanket so I will happily use it up, just glad I didn't buy it to make myself anything :-)
