Comfort knitting revelations

Feeling a little under the weather these last few days (hence missing a few planned posts), I started a new project last night. It's total comfort knitting - a big cowl in knits and purls. As there are only two places to buy yarn in our village (the post office and the charity shop) I had to resign myself to using uber-cheap acrylic yarn (Cygnet - £1.79 per 100g ball x 2 held double) - something I usually avoid. But you know what? It's very soft and knitting up a treat. I like it!

  1. You go. The color's pretty and after its first washing, it'll feel like you've had it for ages.
    I bought some Caron acrylic for a quick knitting fix from the craft store. It's soft and will wash well and be softer like old hat.

  2. Nothing like some comfort knitting to help you feel better. Hope it keeps working!

  3. I know just what you mean about comfort knitting - although I'm currently doing comfort crochet (which will be interesting, as I'm not great at crochet!)

    Also - hi! I missed you x
