I missed the link first time round - that really is lovely Badger. Must go and actually finish one of my sewing or knitting projects. Having finished the housework and as there's a gale blowing outside maybe now is the right time to curl up in front of the TV with some... Better make a cuppa then!

Yes I must make links a more noticeable colour

The one on the needles is in white organic cotton, that should be finished this week. The the one for my mum will be in a lovely red worsted.

I'll try and get organised and take some photos after I've blocked it.

I am currently sewing these squares together (size of a CD case each, 150 squares in total).

I've got a blanket of squares that I have been knitting for 24 years.... Shocked Embarassed

I dropped a stitch while watching Dr Who last night so I've got to look for it tonight.

Oh of course you will!

Seils... I love the way you've arranged the squares. My natural inclination would have been to dispersed the colors throughout, but this way it just flows from one to another... nicely done!


Oh and Badger... and I picked up my knitting again yesterday. I was thrilled it came back to me so readily... yay!

I am still sewing together squares...
have done 5 strips already, onto number 6 of 10. Shocked

Thanks for the compliment, VW, I thought it would be more pleasing on the eye to have a flow in the blanket instead of a constant hop of colour throughout. Laughing

Well, 'tis done,
yesterday night I sewed /sow the last bits together.

It's not easy to take pictures of a floppy blanket that is larger than you are!





but it fits!



I am a happy seil with it.

Hurrah! I've just finished knitting my hat knit


Boooo I can't find my big needle to sew it all up.

Once it's all sewn up then it has to be felted. Had hoped to do it this evening so it could dry out overnight, but it will have to wait now. Then, I'm going to sew sequins and beads on it for a bit of hippy bling

First time I've been in here - not being one of life's great knitters (although I was a child, oddly enough. We all knitted. Because we didn't have telly I guess.

Lovely blanket Seils. I totally agree with Mrs C's comment about the flow of colours across. Quite spectacular. I'd love to have one of those atop my bed.

Actually popped in originally to see if Badger had posted the Clanger pattern yet. Who knows - it may even inspire me to dust off my needles.

Leo is wearing Bea's ladybird hat daily in the snow - v useful for spotting him when he tumbles into drifts. I have been wearing Leo's lion hat during the day and at night it doubles as a cover for the car.

Dear Miss Jelly... are you just going to be a horrible tease and not produce said pictures and thus make it necessary for us to hunt you down with torches? Cuz we can, and we will... We'll KNIT torches if we have to... by golly!

Well, here is the ladybird hat I made for Bea, being modelled by my teddy bear. Apart from squares,some basic fingerless mittens and a plain knitted scarf, this was my first "proper" thing. I was quite proud of it.
