As hoped, I've finished my blackberry salad stripe which I gave to my friend this morning for her new baby boy. I made a small car seat/pram sized blanket....hopefully small but perfectly formed.
I am very pleased with the end result as it was squishy and warm, everything a blanket should be!
Can I go a little overboard with pics?
Right....swiftly moving on......a question for the knitters. I can knit a bit and in fact it was starting back at knitting, making a cardigan for my friend's little girl, that brought me very nicely to crochet, and I'm forever grateful!
Anyhow, I'm wandering a little aren't I?
I have some Sirdar Juniper, not entirely sure how much, as my mum thinks she has more at home. My question is, I've been itching to knit myself something hooded, I rather like this but it calls for super chunky, which I don't think mine is (the details say USA 11 and my ball band says USA 10.5 is that a huge difference?) and to be honest this part of things is a bit foreign to me. The other projects with Juniper, did not appeal.....
Anyway....if someone who is clever on the maths front understands my issue and has the answer, I would be very grateful to be let in on the secret....also if anyone knows of a lovely hooded jumper that is not beyond the ability of a knitting crocheter then suggest away!
Thank you for your continuing help and encouragement, it's all much appreciated!
