A wise knitter once told me that you only knit blankets for love…
…believe me, they weren’t lying!!
I think I suffered a repetitive strain injury in my brain from knitting this blanket! – That said, I am mighty proud of myself for having persevered and I had a real sense of achievement once it was finished. 😀
I got my Mum to do the blocking for me and then she sewed on the brushed cotton backing and added some padding in the middle for good measure. I was so worried about messing it up once I’d finished the knitting part, I couldn’t bear to stitch the backing on myself! (I also made her iron my wedding dress on the morning of my wedding – she get’s all the scary jobs – thanks Mum!! X)
