Ugly blanket for UNICEF Sept 20, 2011

So here it is, so far- the Ugly blanket in process.  While knitting it yesterday my friend’s daughter, S, said that it was very soft, warm and pretty, and proceeded to snuggle into the bits that were furthest from my knitting needles.  I call that a ringing endorsement on the comfort and style of the blanket….. 

Today a lovely ball of purple wool arrived in the mail from my friend SB.  It will be the next colour on the blanket once I finish the blue I started this morning.  Many thanks for her contribution to the cause!!!!!

Are you not tempted?  Save your pennies!!!  Tickets will go on sale in a couple of weeks.
