It's a Woolly Post

rainbowhareYep, I'm still enjoying the yarn...... it's so soothing and the variety of textures never seems to end!  Now I had meant to get this post done yesterday (Sunday), but due to the internet, well the NBN to be exact, being down from Friday evening when I got home from work until today - Monday when I've just arrived home from work .......online anything was very minimalistic!!!  So a day late, I'm linking in with Rainbow Hare  for wool on Sundays which is a monthly catch up. 
 I've been busy working on finishing the crocheted cotton blanket for youngest grandson Jaxson which will be for his birthday in July ....... I'm pleased to say I managed to finish off the border over the weekend, so it's all done and folded.  The orange is a bit of a stand out  ..... I'm always amazed at how the ripples change depending on the colours used.   I have blankets to do for the other 2 grandchildren for their birthdays in October and November as well as one for their Mum and Dad's bed which will hopefully be for Christmas ...... but guess we shall have to wait and see how that all pans out with everything else I'm doing lol  I think it should be big enough for his single bed given this photo is taken on a double size ..... and I would like that he could easily pull it off to take out to the lounge to wrap himself in when he feels so inclined.  What do you think??

I blogged about the fingerless gloves in my last post, so I won't bore you again with those, but they are getting lots of wear!  And I'm pleased to say I've made more progress on the shawl I started on last week ...... a new one of Laura Aylors designs called "So Happy Together". 
I love counting down the rows till I get to change my colours again ..... part way into the blue which is the last colour before stripes begin ....... and then a border ........
I'm going to leave all the current sewing projects for another post, hopefully later in the week when I've had time to catch up on reading a few other blogs around the place.

Happy Knitting and Crocheting!

It's a pleasure for me to write this testimony about this wonderful thing that happened to me last week on how i got my peripheral artery disease (PAD) cured, i have been reading so-many post of some people who were cured of peripheral artery disease (PAD), but i never believed them, I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try dr emu when i contact him, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, i pleaded with him to help me out, it's a great success that he healed just as he promised, he told me that in three days time that i should go and check on my peripheral artery disease (PAD) status, I was floored that when i went to the hospital to check of my status that i was peripheral artery disease (PAD) negative, i never thought possible that dr emu can do miracles, i never really believed in magic but I played along with a little hope and faith and after everything but dr emu changed my life and made me a true believer you can contact him emutemple@gmail.com  emutemple@yahoo.com or whatsapp Number: +2347012841542 website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/ he said that he is also specialize on the following diseases: HERPES, HIV, ALS, HPV, DIABETES, HEPATITIS B, CANCER, SICKLE CELL, VIRGINAL DRYNESS, And Bring Back Your Ex back.
