and this is still my favourite square out of all of them. The FO is about double bed sized and amazingly warm. Pattern from sping 06 interweave crochet and it used shed loads of elann peruvian highland wool.

So a jolly nice weekend really, apart from the coughing and sniffing my head off. Is on the way out though. So now wondering whether to start something new (but knitting from the stash of course) of finish off another UFO. I know what I 'should' do but I have a hankering for a felted bag using the aussie wool I got in new york. Hmmm, quick dip in the pattern stash I think.

I also wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your podcast. I have tried to leave a comment on itunes but my password to apple just won't work even if I change it.

Your podcast got me into looking at the blogs - WOW!

Thanks so much for all you are doing!

That's fabulous! It has such fun colors and it looks so cozy! I love the podcast. I especially loved hearing you do your stash spread sheet and find out that you could knit for the next 2 years without buying yarn. You're hysterical!

I seem to remember a very out-of-date French slang word from the 1970s which would translate as : supersensational. This is the first time in my life I have ever seen a blanket that merits a nsueprsenesational rating. I ****LOVE**** it.

Jo said...

Love the blanket, which IK crochet mag was it, I might get friends in the US to see if they can track it down for me.

Laura said...

That is an *amazing* blanket. I love it"

Hi again. Just wanted to add a question to my earlier comment. You said that the pattern came from IK Crochet - can you remember which one? I wouldn't mind making that blanket... Thanks!
