Updating an old friend.

We've had this couch for fourteen years. It's done great service, and is still oh so comfortable, if a little faded, warn and shabby. I cover it with a patchwork throw, and plump up the cushions and try to cover the snot marks on the arms from fourteen years of children swinging off them.

I'm trying to decide weather to choose this gorgeous botanical fabric to cover the whole thing,
or to go for the plain blue with different cushions.

What do you think?I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with the blue botanical with the raspberry hydrangeas. Kind of depends a bit on the quotes.

I'm knitting these fantastic socks at the moment, from this lovely book, using the crofter wool. I started knitting one of the cardies, but it was looking a bit 1970s school cardy in the wool I'd bought, so I unravelled it and went for the socks instead. Which are wonderful.I'm going to embellish the bands with my yet to be crocheted violas.
Have a happy week blog chics.
