Over to Tassie!

The rug is in the post and off to Jenny in Tasmania. Jenny, I hope you have as much fun knitting your 7cm as I did!

My addition to the book was adapted from a song written by Canadian quilter Cathy Miller:

May this rug keep you safe from harm
May it be your good luck charm
I do not know your name, nor the mountains you face
But what you hold in your arms is a knitter's embrace

On the Move again!

Sorry that this is getting off late - I have dragged the chain with getting this done and the dreaded Morning Sickness has not helped at all!

So here it is, my 7cm. It was getting a little too purple! So I thought some pink was in order. It is a machine wash 4ply knitted double and I knitted a little butterfly pattern into it! So Cute!

I ended up adding a poem! Changed slightly from this one here!

My Blankie!

This has been my favourite blankie,
Since the day that it was received.
Even though it is loved & treasured now
With dirt and just a little torn.

Mumma tries to coax me,
To let her wash out the grime,
But I sneak it out from the laundry,
Just in the knick of time!

Saved from suds at least for now,
It has my smell and the feel I love,
its my bedtime security.

Someday I will be brave enough,
To pack me treasured blankie away,
And will be a picture in my memory
Of that blankie that is so special to me!
