No, I wasn't joking about the crochet blanket; I really do own one. I'm ever so proud of it. In fact, I see design blogs swopping merit awards among themselves when they're not busy with giveaways* and I consider initiating the 'crochet blanket award' for the most dedicated chroniclers of craft. I guess all I have to do is make a fetching little gif, easy peasy.
But, to be honest, I didn't make this blanket myself. I don't have the patience. My mother made it in my favoured pink and green colour combination, and it's the best blanket in the world, and guarantees a good sleep when thrown over a duvet on a cold winter's night.
*Giveaways are like a lottery: you leave a comment and then the blog owner selects you at random as the winner of a set of handmade notelets depicting baby owls. I hope and pray I'll win one soon.
