Project Spectrum... here we go!!

I'm back. As you know I haven't had the strength to pick up a pair of needles for about two weeks. Either that, or the Jaywalker socks I was knitting for the Knit Olympics put me right off knitting. I've tried socks now, I think its one of those Marmite things "you either love it or hate it". I HATE Marmite, its a very British spread for toast that tastes like... I can't describe it, if you want me send you a sampler let me know. Be warned though. Urgh, the thought of it.

So, I welcome Project Spectrum with open arms (I really do). Pink and Red here we go. I'm using this Project Spectrum to knit up one of Debbie Abrahams blankets from her "More Blankets and Throws" book. Its a quick knit, this square only took me a couple of hours and it was really enjoyable too.

The Alphabet Blanket... ITS FINISHED. Well sort of. I just need to sew in the ends and block. Its absolutely gorgeous.

Thank you all for your very kind wishes, brought tears to my eyes, they truly mean so much to me. Thank you, I'm blessed with such caring friends.

I can't wait to see the finished blanket and am glad to know you're feeling better.

I think I saw Marmite on a show that I was watching the other day...does it look like pale peanut butter? The show was from Britain and I couldn't figure out what she was eating!!!
Is everything still going well?

I love the little strawberry square-how cute! Is that blanket going to be for anyone in particular? I've missed your blogging, but glad to know you are on the way to feeling better. Be sure to post some completed pics of the alpha blanket, can't wait to see it!

you should try the australian version which is called vegemite. if you don't like marmite you can be sure you will despise vegemite!

take it easy and look after yourself.

With marmite, you either love it or hate it. I used to like it on toast but you have to spread it really thinly, otherwise it's gross. I love the pink and red together in the square for the DA blanket.
