So that is what I have set out to do. My first project is a giant granny square blanket for Jay. I used the scraps of our Playful Stripes Cardigan to see if I could crochet squares - and I can! This whole test project has now turned into an obession to crochet a blanket to fit Jay's single sized bed. I am using about 20 different colours, if not more of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino on a 3.25mm Clover hook.

It took me longer than I thought it would and only because every single freaking row, I stopped to stare and pet the fabric. This cowl is so big, you can use it as a head cover in the really cold months of winter! Or you can scrunch it up around your neck and face!
This incredible cowl will make great quick Christmas, holiday or birthday gifts for the loved ones in your life.

MMMM....goooood! So good, we have a few samples, Juliet (she is at home having a bath, but will be returned to the shop soon) , a Squishy Scarf:
and now an infinity scarf! This awesome scarf was knit by one of our sheep knitters, Francine. She used three balls, cast on 271 stitches and knit seed stitch on 6.5mm needles until she ran out of yarn. You can wear this scarf wrapped around your neck up to four times, or you can it hang down low. Your choice. We have some pretty awesome colours from light to dark tones and every in between.
