Reaching the finish...

and starting afresh.

I've finished one small repetitious object - another 'metal' page, consisting of several tarnished curtain rings, some lurex thread and some foil, on my last bit of rather nice fake suede.

And one rather larger one - the subtitle-reading-knitting blanket, which ended up not quite big enough to cover me from head to toe, but close. The two cones are all the wool I had left over from the several cones and odd balls I started with. 

Wensleydale said if we had two, we wouldn't need to turn the heating on in the winter. (You can tell he's a Yorkshireman, can't you?)

However I do happen to have a few cones of green, and BBC4 is still showing Scandidrama - although rumour has it they have something Flemish lined up for us next. 

Why has this woman got some much Shetland wool? I hear you ask. Well, I used to have a knitting machine or three, but when I got rid of them I kept the wool, on the foolish assumption that I would hand knit some sweaters. In 4ply. Yeh, right. Using it four strands at a time, even to make blankets, is more my thing these days - and when it gets big enough it keeps you warm while you knit!
