Progress - or lack of

Progress has been a little slow around these parts.
After consultation with my friend I finally decided to knit Roo for Carys for her birthday (which is today). I bought some gorgeous raspberry Dream in Color from Pure Purl - a new-to-me online shop. Superfast delivery and beautifully wrapped yarn.
However I started off knitting the wrong size and had to rip out about 1/4 of the back - grrrr - so I have nothing but a garter stitch edge to show you on that one - and no hope of finishing it before we visit this weekend. Never mind!
There has been progress on the Rainbow Wooleater blanket.

More cream yarn has arrived and also a ball of a much more co-ordinating blue for the next coloured round. Each 2 row round takes nearly 1 full 50g ball of DB Baby Cashmerino - maybe I will be keeping this blanket for me after all!

Finally, a sneak peak of the new Knit Love Club yarn that arrived last week - I am resisting the urge to cast on until progress on Roo is a little further along.

I have also managed to get my hands on some Macushla from the Yarn Yard - beautifully soft - I really want to make a Bitterroot shawl with this.

Oh dear - sorry about Roo, Roo! But your Wooleater (well-named I see!) is looking fabulous!

That blanket is going to be gorgeous, I was wondering how much yarn a round would take!

Hello, I was just on the Laughing Hens forum to look for a Wolves based knit club - I appreciate the posts about setting one up were from 3 years ago so was just wondering if anything is going on that you know of? Thanks! Renee
