I finally finished Alice’s baby blanket! I used the Double Seed Stitch Blanket pattern on Purl Soho’s website and really like the way it turned out. I double knitted the blanket (this refers to using two strands of yarn at a time, instead of the usual one) to make it thicker and softer and that worked well. On these pictures the colour looks redder than it actually is – it’s closer to fuchsia in real life.
And one of our favourite activities lately is reading the original Winnie the Pooh stories together. They’re so funny and the characters are wonderfully imagined; you can just picture bumbling Pooh, timid Piglet, practical, no-nonsense Rabbit and morose Eeyore!
June was having a rough afternoon, so she and Puppy snuggled up for a listen.
