WOYWW - woolly pins

A sideways view of my desk today for What's on your Workdesk Wednesday. Along the top are my cut out squares for my quilt, already decided on which colour goes with what but ran out of pins to pin them together. Next to that top right is my pile of already sewn together squares. My sewing machine patiently waiting my foot! Left middleish is my huuuuge granny blanket. More squares, pinned, waiting to be sewn together.

Middle right - my wool for my mystery Afghan/Blanket. Each week a new pattern is released for a knitted square. So far I am on week 2 and have knitted 6 squares. There are eight weeks in all and it won't be until week8 till we know what it looks like. The bottom purple one is a Nordic Star. I like these because I can knit them whilst watching TV easily. The lamp is on and shining too bright but the orangey thing is my pair of socks I was knitting for Valentines (whoops a bit late!).

That's me done for this week. Hope to see you all with your lovely desks and creations.

I don't know how you keep it all up in the air! Two blankets, socks and a quilt! Plus all the gardening and general running the home tasks you do every day, you wear me out just reading your blog, lol!!

I came across a Canadian wool site yesterday and their prices seem very good, it's knitca.com, just thought I'd pass it along!

I love your desk. It's so full of colour and texture. Quite scrumptious really.

I'm exhausted too but things need to be done. I seem to have spent so long inside this winter it's good to get out and about. Thanks for the wool site I will have a look
