Well, I seem to have opened a can of worms with this blanket business. I've had lots of comments about why I've decided to knit individual squares and sew them together rather than picking up stitches. Apart from the fact that I never thought of picking up stitches, I quite like sewing together. I don't find this any hardship, I like doing it.
It looks neat enough to me. What do you think? I would be very interested to see how the 'picked up' squares look. I'm beginning to feel that I'm being picked on a bit here because of the way I'm joining my blanket. Just because one way is suggested doesn't mean that it's the right way or the only way.
But perhaps I'm just being over-sensitive.
Anyway, onto the more important things in life. Saturday pudding. Presenting Queen of Puddings. Have you ever made this? If not, I'll let you into a little secret. It's easy, cheap and very yummy!
Put jam in the bottom of a dish, top with a mixture of milk, egg yolk and bread crumbs, bake, top again with meringue, bake again and eat.
So much less stressful than knitting blankets.
