Hudson’s Bay Baby Blanket Advice

Alright folks, I’m working on my Hudson’s Bay Inspired Baby Blanket, and I’ve hit a bit of a snag. I love the Philosopher’s Wool that I’m using, but the green is not quite right, and a little too close to the blue. I’ve bought some yarns that are better in terms of colour, but then they’re lacking in that woolly texture that I like in the rest of the blanket. What do you think? Do I favour colour or texture? Which colour do you like best?

vALLANtine vandals is almost here!

Last year, on February 14th, I packed up Hubby, the baby, and my handy-dandy photographer and went to Allan Gardens to hang scarves on the trees in an attempt to help people in our not-so-great neighbourhood stay warm.  I didn’t get to knit as many scarves as I wanted, so this year I’m asking for your help! Please(!)—send me your hand knit, hand crocheted, purchased, and cast-off scarves to hang in Allan Gardens this year! I know—there’s not much time left, but I think we can still do it. I mean, what better way to spend a chilly Sunday afternoon than knitting for a good cause? Plus, it’s a great way to de-stash. I am starting to knit today. Right now, in fact.

With your help I can make this Valentine’s Day project really special.
