New Project = New Yarn

Yes! I have some new yarn to show this evening ;-)
Firstly can I say a HUGE WELCOME to all the new visitors to my blog! It's lovely to have you join me and I hope you'll find lots of inspiration here.
OK...back to the yarn!
So! The Quilt Inspired Blanket (must think of a better name for it than that!) is all finished. What to make next? Of course I shall be joining in on the Scheepjes CAL. But me being me, I need a few projects to have on the go ;-)
Something to snuggle up with during the winter months that are heading our way far too early for my liking! A big snuggle blanket that is hard wearing and can be thrown in the washing machine without too much stress....oh and something not too costly to make as I've just had to replace the shower AND the TV :-( 
I think this might just fit the bill nicely!

By Scheepjeswol it's called Luca. A 70% Premium Acrylic 30% Wool blend that is a good weight. 100g = 180m. Recommended hook size is 5 - 5.5mm. I'll probably end up using a 6mm hook!

It has a sheen to it that replicates much more costly yarns that include silk.

As usual with Scheepjes, it's available in a glorious array of colour choices. Most important in my book! I've chosen 6 for my blanket. 
I've made a start already and will update you all on progress very soon.
In the meantime, don't forget the Quilt Inspired Blanket yarn kit giveaway! You can find all the details here
I'm hoping to show you my finished lacy scarf creations during the week. 
Hope you can join me :-)
