The mitred squares blanket X 2 will be a lovely gift. I agree they really are stunning. I shall look forward to seeing your Gemma too soon.


It's called impatience to start something new and wishing I'd kept my mouth shut about finishing all WIPs this year, gulp! That Sari yarn looks beautiful. I've never used anything like it before, is it quite soft?


I didn't want to mention Gemma, didn't want to send you off on a guilt trip! Sooner knitted, sooner onto next thing!

If you're getting wrist pain, maybe try knitting with something other than cotton and on different sized needles from your current wips. How about some more socks? A bit of a change for you, and just a tiny break from the cotton knitting.


I don't want to be a spoil-sport, but am not happy about you using sari silk to edge the blanket. I have had two lots, first lot was fairly harsh, I tried washing it to see if it softened up (only by very little) but all the colours ran, the purples and the reds, I had a bowl full of deep purple water! The second lot is much softer, but I've not tried washing it. Do test a bit of yours before you use it on the blanket.....
