fun stuff: monogomous no more

i gifted myself another set of knitting needles
and for a change in pace, i decided to work on two blankets at a time.
i've always only worked on one project (mostly scarves and then blankets)
because the process of combining colours would entertain me for months.

after arriving back home from our holidays...
my sunny scrap blanket started looking too one dimensional, the colour combination just wasn't working for me so i ripped it out and immediately casted on my purple blanket with the bag of purple scrap yarn my friend brought me.
 over the weekend...i found the missing link. 
burgundy and moss green are perfect balancing colours for all that orange, pinks and red. so my sunny blanket found life again!!!

i must say it is rather convenient having both on the go... 
now i don't have to keep carrying my knitting basket with me every time i want to 
move between my two favourite knitting corners.
 i haven't found a book to read 
(i've been too distracted by with all the hullabaloo of my water heater drama)
 but brought jeff krasno's wanderlust home from the library.

what a beautiful book !!!
what are you knitting? reading?
care to share?



  1. those yarns look amazing. like the title of that book... gonna have to give it a look!

  2. I have a couple knitting corners, too! Depends on the light and what I want to do while knitting.
    That book looks intriguing. Sadly, my library doesn't have it.

  3. Two blankets at once?! You are amazing Erica, I can't even finish one!
    I have wanderlust on my list to read so I can't wait to hear what you think of it.
    Happy day!

  4. I've never knitted a blanket, two at once is brilliant. The colours work well together too

  5. Just wanted to pop in and wish you a great weekend. I hope your week has been wonderful.


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
