As a joke I gave her a "Knit your own bootees & bonnet" set for Xmas, so there was many trials and tribulations as she knitted her first item in who knows how many years.
Instead of adding to the knitting mountain - as Granny (my mum) has already got her needles at work - I decided to see if I could resurrect my very basic crochet skills and make a blanket.
I started work on it whilst DD was at her Tumble Tots class on Friday. I'm still a bit unsure if I'm doing it right - the length of chains I make seem to vary enormously - and the corners don't seem quite right either.
Well at least I've got another few months to practice!!
