Right but not quite.

The temperature blanket is progressing, but not as fast as I would have liked due to a variety of unavoidable circumstances. I've mentioned before how handy it is to be able to crochet alongside invalids' bedsides etc, but it really does help if you are prepared! The next square was easy, only two colours for… Continue reading Right but not quite.

Temperature blanket – the beginning

Having worked with three round grannies for the last two years I'm found it difficult to get into a rhythm this year. Each square covers the morning and afternoon temperatures of three days. I decided on this partly as a change, but also to make a blanket that is a different shape. These are the… Continue reading Temperature blanket – the beginning

The end!

There is tremendous satisfaction when something comes to an end ... and it's on time! Do you remember the above?

If you aren't a crocheter you can adapt the idea to another technique - for example, patchwork, canvaswork or knitting. If you have… Continue reading Oops!

First four days

December is under way. Are you ready for the festivities? I'm not. The main temperature blanket is put away until I've finished the many pressing chores that I have to do in a short space of time.

Three down, one to go

I'm so glad I kept records! I wanted to choose a linking colour to join the four seasonal elements that have been finished with different colours - Parchment, Stone, Camel and Gold. I have no idea yet how the final blanket will be finished ( as far as the final edging is concerned) because once… Continue reading Three down, one to go
