Wool Delivery

This week, I busied myself finishing off a lovely granny square blanket for Cumbrian Country Crafts.

Granny Squares

Sewing in the ends 🙁

Then, one evening, my parcel arrived!!!  Eeeek!  A Box of Wonder!  I couldn’t wait to plunge in and pull out all the wool.  It felt just like Christmas morning!  Inside, were balls and skeins of gorgeous, colourful Cascade 220.  Oooooo!!!!  Thank you Cascade Yarns!  Yummy yarn 🙂

A few days earlier the postman brought a new yarn winder to my door.  Woo Hoo!!

My new yarn winder

So, with my new yarn winder and trusty swift, I spent a good few hours making skeins into cakes.  Happy days!

Scrumptious Yarn Cakes!!

What am I going to do with all this wonderful yarn?  I’m going to design things 🙂  Yes, at my tiny, itty, bitty desk, I settled down to work on designing squares.  I’m sooo happy in my creative mess working with such gorgeous yarn.

I’m spending this weekend playing with my fabulous yarn, thinking up new designs and popping out for short walks when the sun shines.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend too.

Happy Hooking!

Don't Miss A Thing!
