Well after all my sock knitting last year I seem to have a blanket obsession going on at the moment.
Last year whilst visiting Artis-Anne we had a visit to Collinette for a yarn and fibre fix and I got a load of yarn for a blanket . I started it on New Year's day and in eight days I had finished it .

I'm rather pleased with it .
I imediately got my crochet hooks out and started another one .
This time using all the bits of sock wool I had left from the Sock Challenge .
It now has pride of place on Baby Bear's cot .
One thing leads to another :0)
I have started a third blanket but I can't show you yet as it's for Baby Bear's Mum's birthday .
It's a riot of colour as I'm using Stylecraft Special DK
Don't they look pretty . My friend Jenny at S'n'B pointed me towards this website last night. It's called Mason's and they do a special pack of all these colours for £25 shweee so I have ordered a pack so I can make even more blankets :0)
I have just updated the Etsy Shop this afternoon as well and there is loads of BFL yarns and loads of smooshy fibre  .

8 days is amazing! Mine usually take a year *laughs*

I do generally use my leftovers though :)
