Knit relief

Hello lovely friends. I just wanted to start by saying a heartfelt thanks to all of you who made such lovely comments on the granny stripe blanket. Its very much appreciated.

Moving on I want to draw your attention to the button on the right hand side of this post.

The button will take you to an eBay auction that is raising money to go towards sport relief. In the UK, Sport relief is a branch of Comic relief which was started Richard Curtis (writer of Blackadder and many others) His wife Emma Freud (journalist and presenter) is also heavily involved and has received an OBE for her services to this charity. Their Daughter Scarlett has devised knit relief through her blog Teen Granny. Her blog is all things crafty and I recommend it. She asked likeminded people to contribute a hand made item to be sold for this charity. Many people have chipped in some very fine crafted items and barely a day in, bids are flying in.

I made this,


see if you can find it.

Bless you all, happy weekend.

ta blooming dah


I’ve been a bit in limbo waiting for something else to happen that hasn’t and so I have had unexpected time to work on granny picnic. I have used the Jan Eaton pattern in her 100 squares book. I have also been highly influenced by Attic 24 in terms of how many in the starting chain and number of stripes etc. I have used an edge that Alice invented years ago and that I ferreted away in the old brain. Its very pointy and I think, buntingey. I did have half an idea to make it multi-coloured but simply wanted this project finished. Today we have spectacular sun and I really aught to be digging but a photo shoot is less strenuous. I hope you enjoy reading the pictures!!!
