Wednesday blankey update

Things are almost back to normal here. We are all on a low cholesteral diet and I am so proud of DH. He's continuing to lengthen the amount of time between cigarettes. He's now up to 2 hours between them and each day he adds another 15 minutes to the time.

My Deramore order turned up on Monday. I got Stylecraft Special DK in Aspen, Spring Green, Grape, Magenta, Plum, Turquoise, Wisteria, Green, Bright Green and Violet. I also got a 10% voucher off my next order. I'm so tempted but I'd better use some of the yarn I got first I suppose.

I was trying to plan the next few colours ahead of time and I realised that red just didn't fit so I went with shades of pink, fading into lilac to get to purple.

I'm guessing I'm about 20% of the way through now.

I'm at the point where I just keep looking at all the pretty colours!

There's been a bit of a scuffle as to who will get the blanket when it's done. I originally planned for it to be on my bed but both DDs wanted it. Then DH trumped them and claimed it for him (for falling asleep in the sofa) He WAS a little put off when I told him it could take about 2 months to finish!

So.....2 more blankets for DDs, 2 for 2 friends who want them and not forgetting 1 for me.....I'll be blanketing for the next year!
