  1. Oh, I do love a good cable, and you have lots! It’s going to be so lush when it’s done.

    Wow it is really looking fabulous. The Aran pattern shows up so well in the lilac.

  3. Thats it gorgeous Aran knitting Avis. I am getting an appreciation for purple from your achievement. Well done. Your hands must be killing you

    • My hands are absolutely fine. Does knitting cause you problems?

      • I love knitting, but get dreadful cramps. So use an anti-inflammatory rub before I knit, and also compression half gloves. Old age creeping up too quickly

        • My Mum used to get cramps in her arms and legs, especially at night. Her doctor advised her to drink tonic water, a brand containing quinine. It seemed to work for her. It would certainly put me off knitting if I suffered as you do.

    “lush” is the word I was going to use ^^
    this is coming along brilliantly !

  5. Love a bit of purple! Looking good!

  6. That looks complicated, I love that purple colour

  7. The cable patterns are so timeconsuming…. but they look so gorgeous!

    • I’m in no hurry. My only worry is that if I don’t get it finished before May, it’ll be too warm to sit under and knit. Then it’ll have to wait in a box until September.

  8. Pretty, pretty, pretty!

  9. It’s so pretty!

  10. I just love seeing your progress on this lovely blanket! All of the cables and patterns are so beautiful and I just love how the border at the bottom has just enough ruffling. So sweet!
