Away for a few days and no scissors!

Away to the East Coast today to open up the Caravan for the season, loverly warm day waited till after lunch to come didn't want to get stuck in traffic going for the day, stopped for a coffee at Costa, then popped into Tescos for these

What do I need cloth pegs for except to hang out washing, no I am going to turn them into a sea of colour, my birthday present in December from Hubby was the wool for Attic 24's Moorland blanket. 

Got the kit from Wool Warehouse the always but their wool in a loverly net bag useful for storage, after all the different stitches I learn last year doing the dancing on the beach Cal I feel confident to do this, this blanket was done as a Cal but I decided to keep it to do over the Caravan season March to November.
Since the ball bands will become detached I have used my pegs to make these all labelled with colour, shade number and brand, I even referred to Lucy's blog post how to make them, 

The problem came when I needed to cut the wool, I could not find my scissors, with all the pairs I have not one pair in my bag, fortunately I found a kit I had bought to stitch and as luck would have it, it included a pair of scissors.

Next step a tension sample but I will start that tomorrow.
