I wanted to share my new blankets. My aunt made them for me. She's a master blanket-maker. :D

I know! She's brilliant. A couple years ago she learned how to put the pictures in regular blankets...like the jolly roger in mine. She's done sports teams, baby blankets, and even a Mickey one.

my Mum and sister are a dab hand with knitting and crocheting. They make some lovely things.

Me? I can knit a scarf....a basic and wibbly wonky scarf!

Then you are a step ahead of me. I can't even hold the stick thingy correctly.

Couldn't help but notice the steps up to the sofa and the bed for a certain gorgeous, cute, adorable Arthur!

Very very nice!! :yes:

My Mom makes blankets like this and I am always amazed. I can't even begin to figure them out. Katie has a pooh that she got the day she was born and Marc has one with an elephant and giraffe that match his nursery. I always think that I should learn how, but it never happens :D

It's quite the process. If there is more than one color you have all those extra balls of yarn hanging round.
