I heartily agree with Jeanne and Gloria ... but also must add that the work of knitting or crocheting is very soothing when the "outside" news gets really bad, so that I can get back to a calm and kind state of mind. It truly is a life-saver.
It's my lifesaver too, Sharon. I used to cross stitch or crochet when I needed to forget about a stressful day at work. can no longer cross stitch as my eyes won't co-operate, but crochet is still my favourite method of relaxatioN;
Totally agree with you all. Knitting is my stress reliever......stay out of my way if I don't find time to knit for a few days.....lol.
Wow Sharon, your beautiful blankets got there very quickly. My parcels seem to be on a round the world trip, sometimes. :))
A HUGE thank you to Barbara for having the patience to create blankets from unique size/shaped squares. You are a gem. :))
Some absolute beauties in this batch........ the first blanket is a stunner, just like a church window, the rabbit, lion and paw prints jumped out at me, also, some beautiful granny blankets and a stunning c2c blanket....... what a gorgeous collection! I was happy to see Wandi holding up a blue and green variegated blanket that I sent in December too :))
Lovely! Again really liking the Granny Square blankets, but all are amazing!
Yes, there's a majority of Granny Square blankets here, what eye poppers! And lovely small gaps between the stitches so they hold in insulating air not let it whistle through (like when I try making granny squares, haha). I particularly love the Lion and Bunny knitted blankets but I see some with knitting and crochet in them, side by side and some Tunisian stitched squares as well.
More lovely blankets, it's hard to choose a favourite . I see my lion and pawprint set. Love the colours they have been put with.
Such beauty. So many colours and patterns. I love the lion with the paw prints and the bunny. I loved your blanket too, Chris.
What an amazing 10 minutes scrolling through the last 4 pages and catching up with the amazing blankets that are picured here!
Just gorgeous!! I remember your beautiful blanket, Chris and your rabbit centrepiece square, Karla....
