Welcome 2016

I know I am a bit late but HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I am hoping to make this a productive year and finish off my quilting, knitting, needlepoint, embroidery and tunisian crochet projects. Another bonus of this is to reduce my stash so that I can buy more fabric yarn etc.  The list is long but I am going to give it a go!!
The first project for the year is a simple garter stitch blanket knit with large (12mm) needles and two strands of a chunky boucle style yarn. The blanket is a new project but the wool came from a sweater that I started knitting for my daughter so long ago that she no longer likes the style or colour.  So I consider that finishing a UFO.  I was also able to cut down my stash a bit by using some yarn I already had for the contrasting colour stripes.  It is knitting quite fast and because of the boucle yarn and the garter stitch it is sooo thick and cozy.

Do something creative and have a great day!!
