I’m going to knit a blanket

20 Aug

I’m fed up of sitting under a duvet on the settee so I’m going to knit a nice blanket which can stay out all year. The James Dean duvet has to be put away if we have visitors because it looks scruffy.  My blanket will stay out and be admired.

I am still deciding on colour scheme, I don’t want the gaudy colours specified.  I’m hoping to match it with the chaise cover, tones of green and grey, with a pink Tennessee. But how many shades are required?  I never realised how many other states Tennessee abuts, I could use 10 different colours, but I’m planning on 5-6.  I will take my slip cover to John Lewis once finance is in place and will select and purchase my wool.

Come winter we will be huddled under this.

To do:

  • decide on colours
  • test on map of states
  • buy wool
  • buy circular needle
  • start knitting

      Why not? It’s what Elvis would have wanted after all.
