Mothers Blanket

Hi,

I did some months ago say I was knitting Mother a blanket.   I found the white squares in her bungalow when I emptied it.  There was not enough to make a blanket so I made so more.
 I knitted some coloured ones,  they are a different pattern (I have knitted this pattern so many times I could do it in my sleep)  the pattern for the white squares has been lost,  I will try and see if I can get a copy of it from somewhere,  anyway in the meantime I used up some wool I had.
The border I used the same colours and white.  I know the picture is not brilliant but I laid the blanket on the floor and photo it.   Mother likes it and its on her bed.

Take care
Hugs
Margaret

  7. Hi Margaret, I think the blanket is lovely. The knitted squares are so pretty. I have been thinking of starting a patchwork blanket with the tatted animals I made last year. Hopefully it will get done before Christmas. Have you a great time in Crete.

  9. Oh this takes me back Margaret! My Mom made one for each of my children (5) when they were born and I still have them, wrapped up somewhere! She taught me to knit one but I found it too fiddly so gave up! Michelle x
