I have decided the 1st project of the year will be a blanket. I bought wool for this project 6 months ago and then promptly forgot about it. I found it hard to get worsted wool in any of the local stores so I bought hand dyed wool online. I love strong colours so I choose an emerald green , dark grey and purple. It is for the back of our new charcoal grey sofa so I reckon it will work quite well. I found a pattern on ravelry for a chevron style blanket,see link;
you have to be a ravelry member to access their patterns, so if you are not a member already sign up:)
Here is a sneak peak of one of the projects on ravelry, I love the colours of this particular one, it was made by HomicidalPrincess on ravelry.
