Her pram is red but her car seat is a bright jade green.
So yes I have been wanting to make a zigzag/chevon blanket having seen a couple of my friends making them, so I used some of my birthday pennies, hopped over to Wool Warehouse and bought some.
It is mainly RICO which is what I did he'd last blanket in plus one Debbie Bliss as it was a nice colour.
Now knitting time is seriously reduced now but Martha was happy kicking on her mat so I sat on the floor with her and cast on.
I was clearly on a roll as I got loads done that evening once she was in bed.
It's a easy enough pattern that you remember quite quickly. Stitch markets are the key though.
And yesterday it looked like this
And then this
I'm really enjoying it and its going much faster than I thought. Just trying to add a row here and there, baby willing.
I bought a little more wool with my birthday pennies. I admit being on mat leave its quite a novelty to have extra pennies.
I caved and got this. I have been after some for a while but it's £5 a ball & u need 2 balls. It's like £2 in the Stated which is why I've been dragging my feet.
I also got this one too.
Ironically you can only get this American yarn from Great British Yarns.
I have cast on some socks already and really enjoying the simple pattern.
Whilst I'm blogging on my phone I can't link anything but both the blanket and the socks are linked on the side to my ravelry page, both free patterns.
Speaking of which, Hannah Fettig (the designer) has a buy one get one fee offer on her patterns till the 16th. I've knit get Rocky Coast in the past, so I splashed out and got the mini version to do Martha one. The Knitmore girls podcast are doing a 'mommy & me' KAL so hoping I can use these too.
Right that's all for now. Let me know what you are knitting.
