A blanket is forever!

Forget the diamonds, a blanket is much cozier, and so maybe it won’t last “forever”, but it will last a very long time indeed.  If treated with due respect a hand crafted blanket can be passed down to the children, and then to their children, and even further down the line. Generations can be napping with them, making forts from them, and perhaps even keeping warm whilst knitting under them.

The Crochet Blanket Class is coming up again.  It features one of my all time favourite blanket patterns.  See this version ↑ made by lovely Maurie Todd with the help of magical Noro for the middles.

This is Judith’s version (in progress) after only two classes and a week of knitting time.  Cascade 220 and Berroco Ultra Alpaca making up this beautiful pallet of colours.

Arranging the middles is good-fun!
