Hand-knitted Treasure

It is definitely blanket season. Our house is full of them: big ones, small ones, old ones, new ones, woollen ones, furry ones, store-bought ones and hand-knitted ones. We've got them on the bed and on the sofa and a big pile in the spare room for guests.

My favourite blanket? The one my mum knitted for me when I was a baby, a lovely rainbow patchwork of tiny squares:


The slightly blurry photos were taken in our spare room on a rather gloomy day! As you can see, I am fighting the gloom with colour :)

i've always wanted to knit a blanket to pass down in the family, it's lovely to see you've already got this & has inspired me to get my bum into gear & start making one :)

Thanks for the sweet comments everyone - my mum is thrilled you like the blanket! :)

Fiona, yes it's lots of tiny squares all sewn together. So much work!
