Time here is whizzing again and Easter is a distant memory! I have been up to my usual crazy knitting frenzy recently and due to an urgent deadline shawl for Anni the remake of the sample I was doing for her was put to one side temporarily! The deadline knitting completed I also did a little pattern testing for a friend of mine - this same friend has been up to her usual creative tricks again and has some fabulous new designs in her newly revamped shop -take a look if you dare! Whilst you are there also make sure you visit her blog as she has the most amazing give away on it.

Whilst I have been busy on the knit front I took a little 'sanity' time for me and have been doing a little hooky in the evening when my brain is too fried for anything else. I have found that remembering the pattern for this has been most therapeutic and doing a couple of the middle flowers or the outer block part has given me the head space to relax a little!

Progress is quite slow but I am not doing this for a deadline - just for me (well and the sofa) and it took 12 months to collect the yarn so clearly I am in this for the long haul! I have found that over the last year I have been pulling out old projects and moving them forward a bit at a time so eventually I will have a few things finished as well as the usual collection of newly cast on projects it is just that progress here is so slow on all fronts!

I trust that all is well in blog land and I will try and be back with more progress again soon!

Nice to hear from you again. The blanket is lovely, definitely worth the time.

Hope everything is settling well at your end.

The blanket is looking really lovely! Well worth the slow progress. You'll appreciate it so much once it's done Ros


Blue and white - very summery and looking really good. I see it on a sunny day as a picnic blanket, but it will of course look fab on your sofa! xCathy
