Knitting and more Knitting, I Love it So!

Just thought I would share a photo of the Recovery Blanket so far. It’s vibrant and very pretty, my mom,  my sister, my niece, my daughters and I  have mixed the heart pattern with the vintage diamond pattern. You can read more about the Recovery Blanket here. I love all the colours, we have started adding variegated pieces too. As soon as more pieces arrive from all over, we will add them in amongst the others.

It’s so exciting, the knitted pieces from overseas and SA have started to arrive! I need to go and fetch more from the post office. I am so grateful to everyone who sent and are still knitting and sending squares for this special blanket, thank you! There squares above are from Carle’, Sally, Emma, Melainey and Rene’, you are so wonderful and thank you for the extra little goodies you sent as well, I am truly blessed to know you all xo

My Color Affection Shawl is growing in size, I love the softness of this merino and alpaca hand-spun below mixed with the soft green of the brushed kid mohair, I can’t wait to wear it soon.

Some other exciting news is that my animal knitting patterns have been featured in the Ideas Magazine, it is available here locally in South Africa, overseas and digitally on i-Pad. I have found a lovely digitial news stand where I can download magazines to read on my i-Pad, it’s called Zinio. I’m so happy about this because now I can store them in my i-Pad library and not accumulate magazines all around our home.

Joining with Ginny today.

    seeing your blanket come together is such a blessing! I love the color combinations! Also, I am utterly speechless about your hand spun yarn, really nice!!! I love how the shawl blooms and opens to the possibilities of the colors.

    your blanket is an amazing show of love and support; and congrats on your animal publication!!!! (I love the elephant; mine doesn’t looks quite as wonderful as yours, but I love him just the same)

  11. Jeanette September 19, 2012 at 10:39 pm #

    Hi Linda, just to let you know I posted my package from down-under to you on Monday this week and the guy at the post office said it would take a week to ten days to arrive. The blanket looks great and it must be exciting putting it all together. I love the elephant – beautiful colour and well done for being featured in the magazine.

    The blanket is such a wonderful idea! I can’t stop drooling over those shawl pictures, I think I can almost imagine how soft and fluffy it must be! This week I’m sharing a sneak peek of the Sunday Sweater I’m test knitting for Ginny. Stop by if you have a moment!

    Your mum’s blanket is going to be so beautiful Linda! I love the handspun yarn you are using for your shawl. I made my first shawl this summer and it’s so practical, I wear it someway or other everyday.
    Congratulations for being in Ideas Magazine!
