I don’t normally write about the books I read but I think that these are worth recommending if you want something a bit different. These are the first two in what is in all a set of seven in two series. You do really need to finish these off with at least the next two… Read More What have I been reading?
End of another month. A more unusual montage this month as I have had no new knitted or crochet items to show you as I continue on with my blanket that is still just a collection of motifs. There has been Pizza! and photographs of flowers in my garden and a look back at past… Read More Monthly Montage – February
The advice I need concerns the washing of acrylic yarn blankets. I have never washed any of my blankets even though I made the first one nine years ago.
