Diamonds are Forever!
So here it is at long last - Blanket Number 4 - Diamonds Are Forever. I hope you all like it as this is the very last English Blanket. I am now officially blanketed up! There's another American one on the horizon though.
I have thoroughly enjoyed doing these for Oliver's Fund. And judging by the number of tickets that I've written out, you've all wanted to win one! We've raised over £2,500 I think - unsure of the exact amount as Paypal take a cut and the conversion rate from dollars to pounds isn't exactly 2 to 1. However, suffice to say that Oliver now has his wheelchair! Yippee!!!
I have also discovered that there must be some very wonderful socks out there in the world - from fluorescent pink to dark grey, multicoloured to plain, soft to scratchy. We have a huge range of yarns on each of the blankets, I just wish you could all see and touch them in real life.
So now it's back to my own knitting. I am trying very hard to finsih a few projects before casting on, but not sure if I can be that strong. (But I still haven't bought any more yarn or eaten any chocolate, so I must be pretty strong don't you think?)
