A little Bit of Fun

Any idea what I am wearing? Is it a wedding dress, a shroud?
A bit too late for the first and just a tad too early for the second.

Just the latest blanket knitted off our sheep's back for No.2
granddaughter's birthday. She seemed to like it and snuggled
into it on a cold winter's night in her shared art student
accomodation.
One more to go but not this year, next year? Sometime? Who knows,
maybe, maybe not . . . we never know what tomorrow brings.

  1. Beautiful job on the blanket. It's simply gorgeous. (but not quite as lovely as your smile, Arija!)

  3. Oooooooo, that is wonderful! Many years ago DH brought home some Shetland Cobweb Yarn and a kit to knit a shawl. I had never knit lace! But I knew it had not been cheap, and thus I was thrown headfirst into lace knitting (mistakes and all) and learned to love it.
    I truly appreciate the amountof work in your piece Arija---beautiful!

  4. How wonderful to knit with wool from your own sheep. It's lovely and I'm sure it's very light and cosy to snuggle into.

  5. Lovely to actually see you and doubly lovely to see you wrapped in a blanket of your own making - beautiful it is too.

  6. I love your beautiful hand knitted blanket/wrap, especially as the wool comes from your own sheep. Do you also spin?

  9. Hi Arija,

    Yes, I have been lucky to have that little talented bug-assistant! Though he does keep me hopping....
    I am duly STUNNED at your ring shawl; I would love to try a scarf like that, as I know my hands would only allow that much knitting. If I was closer, I would be like one of those pesky opossums, sneaking in for that beautiful piece you knit! ;)
    Do take care!!!

  10. I know this may be a foolish question, bear with me---is there a pattern for a ring shawl? You must remeber here in the States some things knitting-wise are, well, primitive.....
    You have me completely intrigued now and it would give the hands a rest this winter from all the pesky socks I am compelled to knit for myself! ;)

    XXOO~~♥

  15. Glennis,

    it is hardly a baby blanket, the young lady is 20 and the blanket amply covers a king single bed.

  16. The blanket is simply beautiful! Your granddaughter will cherish it for many years to come.

  17. Beautiful work. It looks so big, just wondering how old is your granddaughter? It would fit three of me too. smiles

  18. Self Sagacity

    Hi, had you read the post, you may have noticed that she is an art student living in shared accommodation and definitely a young lady rather than a babe in arms.

    My daughter has one and two of my other granddaughters as well and the patterns are all different and straight off the top of my head.

  23. Or you could be the good witch of Halloween! However, it is a very nice present for your granddaughter. And a great way to show your handiwork.
