It has come home! The final blanket has been doing the rounds, being knitted up by lots of very kind people, and to all of you involved, thank-you so much. This blanket is wonderful and I am in awe of some of the beautiful stitch work (who did the green stripe, 4th from right? What is that stitch? How did you do it? It's like woven fabric). I am busy knitting a border round it as we speak. It is taking a very long time though. Not only there hundreds of stitches on it, but the blanket is so warm and cosy that within minutes of me picking up the needles, it has sent me fast asleep.
I never know if stripey has an e or not. Spell check says I can have it either way. And on the subject of spellings, youngest son has come home with 'gibbous' in his spelling book tonight. Will someone please enlighten me - what on earth does it mean? I can honestly say that I've never used the word in my entire life. Does anyone else get stupid spellings sent home to learn, or is it just me?
But then you may not think that gibbous is a stupid word and that it's used every day in your house.
But it isn't here!
