Using all the colours

After finishing some of the things that were on my needles over the weekend, I decided to start a new thing to use all the colours.
I gathered together this collection of cotton for a pretty blanket.
Lots of fun to be had with this basket of goodies

Look - I even made a start. 4 ply cotton yarns in all the colours and my 3mm hook.
So the colours are not showing very well here but you get the idea.
Yes, that is the brown cape under the new round blanket beginnings, I am all done with the knitting on this project.
The finishing may just have to wait until there is a day with a some sunshine and warmth as it really needs to be washed and blocked right after I weave in the stray tails. I used almost all of my 600g of wool so there is not even any leftovers to deal with.
I finished the pair for the blue mitts also, but haven't got a photo to share yet.

Hope your weekend was a productive one and your week is colourful.

Sure is nice just to reach over, grab some yarn, and start creating. Your blanket is coming along nicely. I'm used to working with a much larger hook (H being my favorite and the one I use the most). I've got all sorts of projects going on around here. Albeit small ones as I need that instant gratification. My weekend was all about cleaning and crocheting. :) Have a great week. Tammy
