Oooh, that is really, really nice. I hate knitting. I could be tempted though.

Stylish (but it would probably take me until I retire to make - my entire output from this year has been a hot water bottle cover, and I've cast on the wrist of a glove. Pathetic I know...)

Oh Adrian, what have you done. I absolutely love that throw (though I think it's the colours that do it - probably wouldn't have given it a second look if it had been orange and brown!). Looked at the pattern, and realised I didn't even understand it. I might hate knitting, but like crochet, so since my last post above, I've dusted off my crochet hooks (not used for, oh, some 20 years), found a little yarn and been practising with the aid of a little book of stitches. Signed myself onto the Patons website and found a crochet throw pattern I really like. I'm off to buy some yarn tomorrow. Probably just something from a charity shop initially, to practise with, but will look at what I want for the pattern too.

Thank you for putting that on. It has kindled an enthusiasm for a winter project which has taken me completely by surprise. Can't wait to get started.

And started I have. Not quite in the way I intended. Decided I didn't want to just practise, so bought some fairly chunky cotton yarn today. Two hours later I now have a pot holder (ie for grabbing hot pan handles). Nothing big or clever, but I enjoyed reaquainting myself with some basic crochet.

I may have to set my tank top to one side and knock out a panel too
