Simple red stripes

stripes The combination of a horrible cold, lots of work and miserable weather has had me feeling rather quiet recently, but I think it's time I found my voice and returned to this little space. There has been a flurry of knitting going on though and here are a couple of things I'm working on at the moment. Squishy yarns, simple stitches, and just enough red - the perfect quiet, comfort knitting.

The grey yarn is Artesano Aran in Ash with stripes of Manos Wool Classica in the much sought after red, leftover from the cardigan I finished recently (which I haven't shown you properly yet). I'm making a little lap blanket thing, that could also work as a baby blanket, but in this case the only baby is me. The red and white is Jamieson's dk, I'm making some much needed and hopefully quick thick wooly socks. All of these were bought at work on Saturday, when the freezing, dark, stormy weather had me reaching towards the most comforting yarns in the shop. Such a perfectly dangerous place to work!
