It has been a while but I am just dropping by with an update!
I went away for a few nights between Christmas and New Year, staying at the beautiful Thoresby Hall.
As a result of some intensive crochet around the beautiful old parts of the building I can now report that my blanket is all in one piece. There are couple of seams unjoined I think and lots of ends to darn in but the worst is over. I don’t think I will do another with a “pattern” to it – far easier to just be able to join as you go along.
