Woolly Goodness

by Julie Hirt

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about any projects, but I haven’t had any projects.  Booo.  We had a small house fire and that has turned into a almost 6 months of living in a rental.  ALL of my sewing and craft supplies are locked up in storage.  It made for a pretty boring winter on the craft front.

A few months ago I couldn’t take it anymore and bought a few crochet hooks.  I made a couple of scarves and a quick, triple-thick afghan.  Since my camera is also in storage I haven’t been able to take any pictures of those projects.

I wanted to get photos of this yarn before I started my project, so  I brought them to work with me and borrowed an office camera.  I’m in love with the colors and feel of this yarn!  It’s an assortment from the Cascade 220 Superwash line. I never knew 100% wool could be so soft.  I did splurge a little but I figured it will be my project for many, many weeks.  Quite possibly, months.  There is also a softer orange color that I’ll be picking up from my local Yarn Shop this week.

These pretty balls of goodness will (hopefully) be transformed into a ripple blanket using Attic24’s Neat Ripple Pattern.

Side note:  I think my dad loves the quilt I made for him.  I cannot WAIT to get back to sewing – knowing I have quilts partially made for the girls is driving me crazy.   Want to get those finished up so I can start a quilt for my mom.
