I got the trainers for him and, naturally, wandered into said shop. What did I buy? Some fabric remnants - a black with white spots and a navy gingham - and some more wool.
Okay, I know I didn't really need the fabric or the wool but, since I was there anyway, I just thought I should get some! Not my fault! I mean, I wouldn't have gone there at all if I hadn't had to buy his trainers! So, Douglas is getting the blame! :oD
Anyway, now that I've unblamed myself for that, here's why I wanted some more colours of wool. I'm in the process of making a round blankie. This is just a quick photo of it - I didn't take any time to make sure it was lying flat!
I don't know how big this will become. It's only about 30" across at the moment and I think it needs to be bigger than that. I'll just keep going until I get bored with it.
And then I'll need to think of something else to use up all this yarn I keep buying! :oD
