Last day of the month today, so I thought I'd update.

First: yarn.
Added to the stash: 5 skeins of Rowan Tapestry I picked up half price in the last few days of the sales and 2 skeins of yarn from the 'Workshop' , a new little shop that sells material and some yarn and that also organises workshops. I got a voucher for Christmas and decided make the most of the last day of the 30% off sale :).

Out of the stash: the last of the Rowan Colourscape Chunky and a load of green yarn. 2-and-a-bit skeins of acrylic from Wibra, one of Katia Promo Fin and 3 different sized balls of unidentified yarn.

My stash now looks like this:

Next: projects.
The centre square of the green blanket is finished and has been blocked. It is now ready to have another band of squares sewn round it, but I'm not sure whether to add them straight away or to do a dark border first, then sew on the next band and then do the outside border in the same colour as the inside one. Actually, I think I'll probably do that. The blanket is a scrap blanket with lots of different colours, so it'll be good to have something that binds it together as a whole.

Inspired by Stichnerd's wave cowl I decided to use up the last skein of Colourscape to knit myself one of these. The pattern is really nice to knit and easy to memorise, but I'm not sure about the length of it. I like cowls to either be short enough to wear in one layer close to my skin or to be long enough to wrap around two (or three) times. This one is slightly to long to wear singly, but also slightly to short to have a nice drape when worn double... I just hope it'll give a little with some slight blocking...

The yarnbomb is growing some more flowers and is starting to look nicer, but there's still a way to go...
