Keeping Warm.

Posted on | July 26, 2012 | 9 Comments

It is a rarity to have snow in our area, but it still doesn’t stop thoughts about snowmen. There are so many lovely stitcheries around for Winter.  When they are small and easy to finish like this one it is hard not to be tempted.

This is a free pattern from Rustic Threads. I would like to do a few more and turn them into little pillows or pin cushions.

In the middle of Winter it is lovely to have a quilt or blanket to snuggle under to keep warm.

What could be better than a hand knitted blanket?

No, I did not make this. My hubby did. In fact, he made it from scratch. He bought several different coloured fleeces, then spun the fleeces into knitting wool.

He then knitted all the squares and stitched them together. I may be biased but I think that’s impressive.
