Finally! I have finished my sweat pea blanket and I did try to finish it in time to enter into my local flower show craft section, but, I am afraid my fingers were just too sore to keep the tension in the yarn so my border went a bit wavy. Although this one was not good enough to enter, I entered my Cosy autumn coloured stripe blanket instead. Woo-hoo, it got first place in the crochet and knitted section. So that, along with my paintings and a photograph of snails on a wall, got me the Handicraft trophy. I won’t be attempting any more large blankets but I may do some smaller Granny blankets instead as they are a bit easier and won’t take quite so long to accomplish. I will now be getting my paints out again – maybe I will just play about with art journalling to get me in that mindset and playing with pens and paints before they all dry up.
