Look what arrived in the post on Monday...
lovely aren't they. Can you guess what I have in mind?
Ok then I'll tell you..
A ripple blanket.

But first things first, I must finish my Shalom. I crammed in some extra knitting hours this week when a ragging wisdom tooth woke me very early on Monday.

Hoping that my Amazon order will arrive today!
Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along.
