Driving about 1700 miles to Spain gave me plenty of time to start a new project. The BIG blanket had to stay at home,it was just to big to work in the car.
The colours were chosen.Shades of pinks and lilacs. And the pattern just jumped off the hook. Mitred Squares to make a Lappycuddlyghan in memory of Iris to go to Mrs Twins and her wonderful collection of blankets for the elderly. I was so glad to have an unbroken period of time just to sit and hook. I decided to work,sew in ends and join as I worked and the result was so pleasing.
Now I just have the border to do and it is all done. Not too much thinking time. Nor too much hanging around time just the perfect full stop to all the arrangements.
Iris loved coming to Spain. She loved our little house on the hillside. Every night she used to look at the twinkling lights of the village below. And in the mornings she used to sit just outside the front door in the sunshine knitting baby hats. We have so many happy memories to treasure.
