The woolly heart on the sidebar is no random choice, but part of a Work in Progress of a different kind for me, and so here’s the almost-completed pram blanket for the daughter of a friend whose first baby is due on Feb 14th.
For someone who has been a bit of a handicrafts refusenik, I’m quite pleased with my effort, which has also reminded me of the of the pleasure of producing a physical object that might be of practical use (compared, of course, to wrestling in the ethereal universe of words ). And even if the finished article doesn’t get used much by the forthcoming baby, it has already kept me warm on many a chilly evening. Yes, I could get hooked on the whole knitting thing, and talking of hooks, might even branch out into crochet.
Best of all, when something like this is done it’s done. No pitch or synopsis required.
