Changing perspective

I am ridiculously pleased with the way the coloured star blanket has worked out.
Just by using all the colours, well not quite all as some of the colours had insufficient yardage to complete even one round, I think the blanket is perfect for a little person.  

4 ply cotton in all the colours - Rainbow ripple pattern
After finishing the blanket on Saturday, I had the urge to cast on something new.
Too many stitches on a little circular needle mean you can't see the pretty lace pattern but I am confident that it will look fine when done. I am having another try at using the Rowan wool/silk which failed so dismally at being mitts earlier this year. While this yarn is lovely to work with it has a rather unusual texture and knits into a thick fabric for a 4 ply. I'll finish this one off anyway.

Happy Monday to all.

Seen a few of these blankets being made mainly of homespun yarns and must say I love yours best. The colours are fantastic. Love the new knitting too. I have just started a new jacket and every second row has a cable every 8 sts so it is going to be a long term knit lol. Must go and find something else to cast on to work along side it lol.
