Moving on with the blankets that I am enlarging for my friend. It doesn't do to hold your breath while you wait for me to get through a project as I work very slowly due to my arthritic thumbs. At this point I could probably issue all sorts of dire warnings to crafters about overusing their hands but if you're anything like me you won't listen. Sitting with idle hands, for me is not an option; I get really fidgety and if I'm watching television I just fall asleep. I've thought of other crafts that I could do that might be less punishing to my poor old hands but I don't find them as satisfying as knitting and crochet. I learned both these crafts when I was 6 and 10 respectively and I have never tired of doing them. It's that Capricorn practicality, I just have this urge to make something that's useful and needed. So now I'm learning to slow down and not overdo the work I love. It took the message a while to get through, didn't it? Anyway here is my latest effort. The colours are prettier than the photo shows and I'm quite pleased with it. That dark blue is actually mauve. Only another 5 to go but I think I'll take up some knitting for a few weeks as a friend has given me enough yarn to make a little cardigan for a toddler and I've found just the pattern for it. I hope you're loving the things that you're creating. Bye for now until next time.
