WIP Weds: More Christmas presents

Hi guys! Another WIP Weds. I decided to make 198 yds of Heaven for MiL. She is the most difficult person on my list, every year she insists that we should not waste our money in her and she needs nothing… grrr. Love her dearly, but would like to strangle her! Well she has a brown winter coat.

The yarn was $6.95 cdn, so she can hardly get upset.

This is very close to the real colour

Just love the colour, rich milk chocolate brown with a rust under tone.

Still have ways to go

I have been so impressed by number of WIPers doing the Beekeeper Quilt. What appealed to me was the stash busting possiblities, however making puffs though interesting would not suit the use I had in mind. So I started hunting around for something similar.

In this light I had a tough time getting the detail

I found the Beryl Blanket, works up quickly and uses up those small balls of left overs.

Well that’s all till friday,

    The project for your MiL looks great, and I feel the same way about people who say they don’t want anything.

    That is gorgeous yarn for your MIL. She’s sure to love it! Thanks for the link to the Blanket … it’s definitely in competition for my sock yarn scraps!

    Gorgeous colour, beautiful shade of brown. I get annoyed by people like that too, never make your job easier, aren’t they ;o)
