New Major Knitting Project

Towards the end of last year, following a particularly enjoyable knitting course with Debbie Abrahams and heedless of the number of unstarted projects sat in my crafting storage, I signed up for Debbie's Mystery Blanket.

The first instalment arrived last weekend and I've so far resisted starting it, but I haven't been able to resist opening it and looking at the patterns and trying to get my head round the techniques.  It seems a little bizarre that we're using pure wool and wool cotton but I'll trust it works; Debbie's previous mystery blankets are gorgeous.

I have a feeling that I may have to try out a tension square this weekend, don't want to get behind! But the mittens must be finished first before any serious blanket knitting commences (we'll see how long this resolution lasts!).
