Can you remember your very first crocheted blanket?  What did it look like?  
When I saw this post on Country Kitty, I was astounded —- what an amazing job she has done!  My first blanket was nothing as amazing as this … it was sort of lop sided, and the stitches weren’t consistent.  Sure, I was so proud of it, but this puts my first attempt to shame!  :-)

As well as finalising custom orders, I’ve been making stuffed Podkins galore in preparation for an upcoming Market in May. Here are 4 little felt monsters. Made 6 yesterday but they couldn’t all squish into the photo. 😉

Finished crocheting the ‘South Bay Shawlette’ using @theflyingkettle ‘Sylph’ colourway.  It’s so soft and lovely and drapey.  So very happy with it.
