Missing for a bit

I've been missing for a while because our broadband gave up the ghost and it took a while to get BT out to fix it.  However a very helpful BT man came last week and sorted everything out for us.  He moved our router to a different location so hopefully we will have a more reliable broadband service in future.

On the knitting front, I have been making some preemie blankets.  I used Daphne's pattern from Wye Needlecrafts' collection of preemie blanket patterns (sadly the patterns do not seem to be on their website any more).  I like it because it is simple and also because of the waffle texture it produces:

I will be adding them to some other preemie blankets I have made and sending them off to Cuddles UK, who provide maternity units with burial clothes and blankets for stillborn and premature babies.  It is one of the very worthwhile charities supported by Loving Hands.

I've also sent off a parcel to Loving Hands.  There was a small amount of room in the box, so I quickly knitted a few pairs of children's mittens, which are always in demand for Operation Orphan.

They filled the gap admirably!


  1. That looks like a lovely blanket pattern. Luckily I printed these off when they were mentioned on Loving Hands last year, or the year before. I haven't knitted that particular one, but might now as it has turned out really well.

  2. Lovely blanket and mittens Barbara, I'm making canular mitts this weekend. :)
