Number 11

This will be the last India cot blanket for a while as I've run out of squares. It's a motley selection of colours but I've managed to make quite a large blanket with these left overs.

I've succumbed and ordered some wool for a Christmas Ripple Blanket. (Call it a Christmas present to me.) I've a few ideas buzzing in my head and just guessed the number of balls of yarn I would need. Red, white and green will be the colours for this blanket which certainly won't be finished by Christmas. I still have one shepherd to complete for my crochet Nativity and I'm plodding along with my Summer blanket squares, adding more colours to the original 17. I'll just keep the squares coming until I've finished the wool.

Swimming tomorrow as part of my fitness regime! I wonder how many lengths I'll be able to do! It's been a long time since I've been to the swimming baths.


  1. How do we fit it all in? Retired? Think the dictionary needs to do a new definition.x

  2. Good luck with the swimming. I managed to get the word Ofsted in the novel. Thanks for the idea.

  3. The cot blanket looks great. I'm looking forward to seeing your winter projects. Jx

  4. Congrats on the last blanket Mum!

    Enjoy treating yourself too.

    And do let us know how you get on with the swimming.

  5. Good luck with the swimming, I haven't been this year, the chlorine's started playing havoc with my skin after years of being fine.
    that blanket's a beaut! x

  6. Last week at a local craft fair someone was selling a full knitted nativity for £5! No, didn't snap it up but it didn't stay on the stall for very long.
    Great blanket, look forward to seeing your Christmas Ripple.
    Hope you are having a good weekend.
