Well done Jen's Mum, I too made a granny stripe blanket in the last few months, which took me an age (210 chains), as I kept getting distracted by other projects!! It is fantastic once you get past the initial counting and dc row but well worth the effort and Lucy's help is invaluable. It is BeAuTiFuL!!! Great post too. So... what will it be next??? Karen x

Thanks Audra, they are my favourite colours for tulips. Crocheting, and resting, away!! x
Thank you Evelyn, I've just been winding it into balls, whilst resting of course, so feeling better at the sight of it already! Karen x
Thanks Jen, I have some time to catch up on my projects- feeling lazy doesn't come naturally but I shall make the best of it despite sniffles, coughs and a multitude of tissues! Poncho yarn is ordered!! So exciting and yes, love Lucy's too. x
Hi Audra, your ponchos are beautiful!! I will pop them on my FB page and share! You have so many amazing makes, cannot wait to see the patchwork blanket, you have a lot of WIP's Love Karen.xx

Hi Jen I can well imagine the frustration and foot stomping cheesed-off-ness that ensued after the counting. However it is an easy mistake to make. It is a beautiful yarn and you are brave going for a 4ply knit, I'd need to improve my glasses prescription I think!! Happy knitting and cowling- it's going to be god-gee-us!! Karen :O)x

Thank you Katrin, I love it. Karen :o)x
Gorgeous colours, looking forwards to seeing the finished cushion. I know what you mean about keeping it... I made 3 for christmas presents and then finally made one for myself!! Karen :O)xx
Happy New Year Jen, all this food makes me feel hungry!! It looks lush. Glad you had a lovely festive time. Karen :o)xx
Hi Helen, thanks for dropping by. It was a lovely walk and although cold and wintery it was so good to get out! Enjoy the Australian summer! My friend really loved her glittery lampshade. Karen :o)xx

Thanks Jen, I have had a busy half term so far but I'm looking forwards to getting away and I'm loving my Autumn wreath too. I'm just checking out a pattern for pine cones, having just finished a glorious sunflower and dahlia. Hope to post the finished project soon! Karen :o)xx

Hi Jen, pleased you're all safe and sound. Not a bit of The Wizard of Oz-like hurricane it was predicted to be!! Sometimes we can be resourceful when we have to be, and it seems that your evening was more cosy than catastrophic as a result. Hope all gets back to normal outside soon! Karen :o)xx
