First Square

So here it is then - the first of what I hope will be many squares for 'Oliver's Blanket'. Bartholomew has taken quite a fancy to this square and has requested that he hold on to it for a little while.

Just in case anyone apart from Minxxy wondered, there are 26 stitches and I used 3.75mm needles. Oh and I used Posh Yarn's Emily - a very lovely yarn to knit with if you've not yet tried it - it was a little bit left over from 'Bump's Blanket'. The address to send squares to is over there (I'm pointing, can you see?) along with any raffle ticket money. We're going to try and sort something else out regarding money so you don't have to just send cash, but I'm slow at things like this, so please bear with me for now.

We're all a bit excited over here at the Stash Basket today, we'll shortly be having a new addition to the fold. Vera . Bartholomew can hardly contain himself! Alfie is a bit worried about the impact a monkey will have on his offspring, while Blossom just raised her eyes patiently to the ceiling and started looking for Banana Cake recipes!

Oh all right, you win - I am pleased for you really. I'm just envious as well . But I promise not to try and mug you. So no need to book in for that appearance-altering surgery after all - save your cash for buying more cake ingredients and stash instead, that'd be far more sensible :o)

Look forward to seeing more pics of Vera once she arrives in the stash basket!

ps I've started on my square for Oliver's blanket- it's jumped to the head of the knitting queue, ahead of finishing my own monkey. See, I can be a little bit nice sometimes - when pressed.
