Wool on Sundays – 128 (Halted at the border).


rainbowhareThank you very much for visiting Wool on Sundays :)

As you can see from the top photo, Mrs Hare is kindly modelling the sewn together Autumnal Lap Blanket. But I’m afraid there is going to be no Ta-Dah today, the reason being I have run out of the border colour. This, I know, could happen to anyone but I only bought that colour to finish the border of the Rustic Lace blanket (below)…and to have it happen to two projects in succession seems a little careless. Now I have two WIPs needing bordering and many, many trials with other shades has convinced me that no colour except Drops Karisma in Green Mix will do. I must sell more sewing patterns and buy more wool – but only Green Mix.

In the meantime, I have started something in the oatmeal colour I had originally intended to use to border the lap blanket. Can you guess what they are?


As a clue, it will not be another blanket and I should have a Ta-Dah on these next Sunday. I’m feeling that a wool Ta-Dah is growing over due :(

If you have any wool/yarn posts to share, I’d love you to link up. The rules, as usual, are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links.

    I must admit that I have no clue on what you are stitching with that Oatmeal yarn. I should be dragging my yarn out within a few weeks as the weather is turning colder. We usually have our first sign of snow during the first week of November. But thankfully, I have not had to turn on the heat yet, except to take off the morning chill.

    I have no idea what the little oatmeal coloured bits and pieces will become, but I do know the pain of running out of a specific colour of (for me it would be fabric), usually near the end of a project. Sucks, but it happens to all of us! Sometimes we can get the exact item we need – other times we have to think outside of the box to get ‘r done :D

    Our heat went on a few days ago here — I came downstairs on the weekend and thought it was chilly in the house – it was 65F (18C) and hubby told me that it was too early in the season to turn the furnace on. As it turns out – he was incorrect, as it was exactly the right time in the season to turn it on … HA! :D

    Mrs Hare looks ever so comfy under your lovely blanket. I don’t suppose she cares a fig that there is no border. =) Are those little oatmeal pieces perchance….flower petals?? Here’s hoping you sell a motza so that you can acquire some more yarn to finish your lovely blanket.

    Oh I hate it when I run out of yarn!! I must say Mrs. Hare is looking very comfy under that warm blanket and I don’t think she cares that it is without a border. Hmm..I think I will just have to wait to see what you make with those oatmeal-coloured pieces :)

    Knitting is one of those things I don’t really do (well I can knit like a 6 year old, but that’s not very impressive once you’re over 50) but I really love knitted blankets – yours makes me think (again) that I should get on and learn to do it properly.
