I seem to be a bit besotted with granny squares of 5 rounds. They don't have to be multicoloured, but it helps. This little video is part of the story of this blanket. (If the above doesn't work the link is here) So, 12 squares in memory of 120 blankets. I wonder where they are… Continue reading Back with more grannies.
Well, we survived the heat, but how have you fared with the rain? No floods here, but around the country family members have experienced 'puddles' of various depths. It's been scary.
