Blanket is finally finished and something different from Knit Camp

Gee - at last the Rainbow Blanket is complete - have a look!

 I'm pretty pleased with it. I added a one row border as well.
I'm planning for this to last into my dotage.

And last weekend we had our annual Knit Camp - and did a non-knitting project - bookmaking and book binding. It's pretty cool. The part I enjoy the most is choosing paper and binding for the covers.
And Karen brought some of her stamps so we could add those.
 The pink paper is from Korea
 The blue is from Japan
 The map paper is Italian. It was good to find a way to use some of my stash paper.

And I embellished the last one with a stamp that seemed to suit it.

What's New?

Well I have finished the two cardigans for Rosie and Millie. I am going to catch up with them this next week and also give them the dolly blankets - finally!

 The second instalment of Vintage Purls Winter Sock Club was a lovely cowl - partly because I had harrassed Morag into doing one - seeing as I have declared 2013 to be the 'Year of the Cowl" for me.
 I used a different yarn (Colour Adventures Merino Light) that my sister had bought for me in Canada last year. It is a fairly simple knit - so I plan to make more for Christmas presents
