Last… Read More Lost Garden blanket – ready for the corners
Making this blanket is quite addictive. I keep wanting to see how the next row (or two or three) is going to look and have only done my knitting to give my wrists a rest from crochet. This next part has been easier on my wrists than the first section and I have found making… Read More Lost Garden blanket update

I haven’t done anything other than continue with my blanket this week due to having another minor health problem that I won’t bore you with.
