I have really enjoyed the making of this blanket, i.e. the crocheting of the squares and playing with the colours. The sewing up ended up being a case of mind over matter because it was so boring and tedious! But here it is in all it’s final finished glory. I wish you could feel it because it is a lovely heavy wool and is so snuggly to curl up under. A few weeks back I imagined it being used in October but because of our current winter conditions I have been using it each evening. I cast on some knitting this week. 18 months without two needles – it felt good to put the hook away and knit again, especially from snuggled underneath this.
