|Then there were 3 more to go...|
My lack of access to pubs, restaurants and fast Internet means that I have gotten a bit of knitting done in the past week or so. Firstly, now I only have two more letters for the baby blanket to do - T and J funnily enough. Gotten both the 'F' and 'V' done in two days. The latter didn't come out very clearly - think it's a combination of the dark purple wool and the wool quality.
Knitting books are something I should probably start investing in, for the times when Internet is unavailable.
Since the 'V' didn't come out well, I thought about finally trying out the different colours thing. Stripes I've done, when I did my SA scarf, but not patterns.

|The bear for my mother.|
Finally, I want to share the bear I made for my mom for Xmas. Again, first attempt and he's certainly not perfect (I had to sew his legs on three times to get them mostly level), but he turned out ok. She cried when she saw him, so at least she liked it. Well, she told me they were happy tears anyway.
So on the to-do-list for 2015 is to finish the blanket and to attempt a garment. I've seen some nice patterns for wool dresses or an off-the-shoulder top/jersey/thing. Still have to figure out what I'll do for the border of the blanket, or if I will just do the corner squares and leave it at that. Hmmm. The latter means only 4 more squares (after I'm done with the letters) but the border might look nice, although it will be another 4+26 squares...
