Really, my husband’s cousin Polly should start her own crafty blog, but to be honest I rather hope she doesn’t, as then I would have much less to blog about myself. She recently made this absolutely fantastic blanket in exchange for the two big tea cosies I made.
I now feel terribly guilty that she got two sets of, basically, ruffley pants for teapots, and I got this gorgeous lacey blanket. It’s so far out of my league knitting-wise that I don’t even know the names of the techniques used.
Suffice to say it is just stunning. Very sadly, I parted with it and gave it to friends as a Christmas present. Luckily they are the sort of friends who won’t mind me sitting beside it and stroking it lovingly when I visit. And if Polly is feeling benevolent I might try and trade her again (with something more worthwhile!)
Happy New Year, all!
