Number one of the blankets that I am enlarging for a friend is finished. The small squares surrounding the large ones are mine. Yes I know I'm slow but many years of too much crochet & knitting have taken their toll on my hands and I try to ration the length of time I spend at my beloved crafts. I'm really pleased with this effort though the stash still doesn't look any smaller. I'm beginning to think it is related to the Magic Pudding and will never get smaller no matter how much of it I use. What a lovely thought - endless craft supplies - yes please. On this subject I have a message from the man of the house, who shakes his head in bewilderment when I speak of my stash in guilty tones. "I don't know why you crafters worry about your stash," he says. "Just enjoy it. You know you'd go balmy without it." So there you have it fellow stash holders. From one member of the non-knitting/crocheting population, "Go for it." I'm now starting on the next enlargement project. Bye for now until next time.
