Slowly does it.

At a guess I'm around one sixth of the way through the blanket: 


I think a trip to the LYS is needed as I was clearly way, WAY out on my estimations of how much acrylic DK I had in my stash ;-)
And talking of yarn shops, if you're ever around mid Wales then there's a wonderful little shop in Machynlleth that has such lovely scrummy goodies for the crafty types. I can't remember the name of the shop but it has a lovely selection of Colinette yarns, Brittany needles, peg looms, and felt creations. I could have spent soooo much money in there but I didn't. I have fleece to spin and carders to buy before I can buy anything else remotely yarny. Well apart from the acrylic DK of course!
Off now to see what crafty things you've been up to whilst I've been away.

Looking good. Mine's coming along slowly as well, it's somewhat less portable though than I planned!

Looking beautiful x
I thought I knew which shop you meant, but it's different - one I know is in Knighton, Powys.

I'm off to Machynlleth in August though so might just happen across the yarnshop ;-) - just for a look!

Wow, that looks lovely :) Well done you for resisting the urge to go mad in the LYS....I don't know that I would have had the will power!
