Raggles the cat had to investigate...
So what did I get? Well I was quite restrained. I bought enough for two sweaters for my children. I've used Wendy Merino DK before (in fact I'm wearing it at the moment!) and it washes and wears well. Plus it's soft and warm so just perfect for sweaters :)
This colour is called Dutch Blue (2358) and is going to be knitted up into a Frozen sweater for my eldest boy
The red is slightly more orangey than I was hoping for but it's not too bad. It's called Persian Red (2352). Not 100% sure what this will be knitted in to but given I've got a cardigan WIP and then plans for another cardigan and a sweater I think I've got a bit of time to think about it!
Speaking of my cardigan WIP, I've made lots of progress. The pockets are almost finished apart from sewing the sides up, and I'm now on to the edging. It's more of the daisy stitch so quite time consuming to knit but a really pretty way to finish it. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be on to the sleeves :-) Sorry for the washed out photo, my camera is really struggling to capture the shade of green!
