New blocks

Knitting on the afghan is coming along nicely – completed two more blocks this week. Once I get going they only take two or three evenings each, which makes it even more ridiculous that I left it in the cupboard for so long. Plus I think I’ve found someone to give the finished blanket to, who will hopefully appreciate the hundred-odd hours and four kilometres of yarn that will have gone into it by then…

Though on the downside I have accidentally cast on a new thing. Well, I had this lovely fluffy mohair yarn sitting in my stash, without a ballband or anything, so I thought I’d just knit a quick swatch. Just to see what it looked like. And it looked rather lovely, and was so soft to knit with, I thought I’d just do a few rows. And now here I am with another project to be getting on with.

Though fortunately I’m about to run out of the yarn and have to find some more, so it can hibernate for a bit.
