I had an idea that I posted about a couple of weeks ago. I was trying to use two colors in the same baby blanket. The results were not exactly what I had wanted. I wanted a flow between these two colors, and I didn't get it.
This first photo is of a one color blanket, and I am very pleased with it.
This second blanket is my experiement. I really liked the parts where I used the two colors together, but I feel like the middle section is too bright! I think I will stick with one color on these blankets or maybe even using two colors together the whole time.
I saw a very cute way to wrap a present in a book recently. It was one of the books that has a million gift items you can knit in a few hours. In the back of the book there were a couple of gift wrapping ideas that I really liked. This one uses a button to anchor several threads of different dimensions and textures together.
Here is a close up of the button. I burrito wrapped the rug in plain brown paper and then selected the yarn and ribbon from my stash, and just played with it a minute. I think it is kind of cute don't you?
Today I am going to re-rinse all the skeins I have already soaked in salt water, just to make sure they are color fast. I think that is probable just about all I will get done today, but you never know I may even get to some weaving.
