Yesterday was a very good day. I finished this knee blanket for a birthday gift .I made it for an elderly gentleman who has spent 6 months in hospital . That is a big slice out of life .
He sent it back home because he has had several of his possessions stolen while in hospital. His shaver , his Roberts radio and his fan . He will use it when he eventually gets home.
Tis is his blanket parcelled and tied with crochet flowers ,
I also finished a bag I was making for bluebell .She bought the pattern a long time ago but could not quite get the instructions.
It has 4 similar sides with the handles tied at the top . The handles are pinned on , they need attaching with buttons .
I am making a colourful large bag for myself . I'd like to get that finished today .
I recently discovered King Cole knitting wool.
I am knitting cardies for the little ones . It is beautiful yarn and such a pleasure to use .
I'll show that later in the week.
In the garden daffodils to be lifted and snapdragons put in .
