New Blanket For Iggy

I am currently knitting a blanket for my two year old soon using a great multi colour mohair I picked up at Lincraft in Alexandria, they had an entire batch of amazing European yarns that they were trying to get rid off for $5 for a 100gm ball, not bad at all. The mohair was quite nice quality and colours. The angora they had available was a little rough for me and despite the low cost I desisted buying it. I did walk out with the beautiful multi color mohair and some standard superwash 100% wool in green and blue.

I am making a sample blanket as I am excited to try many of the patterns from my Treasury of Knitting Pattern books by Barbara G.Walker. So far I have used the Cocoon stitch and the Embossed leaf pattern, they are turning out quite nice.

Today I went to Penrith to visit The Wool Inn. What a great store! The staff are super friendly and very helpful. The resources available are amazing, so many different colours and textures. I opted for a hand dyed blue pure New Zealand wool. Hopefully it will compliment the other colours in the blanket.

In the end all that matters is that this little boy likes it!
