Today as part of my attempt to complete Blogmas; a post a day from 1 December until Christmas I thought I’d talk about how I love nothing better this time of year than snuggling under a blanket, preferably one I have crocheted myself. As we plunge towards the depths of winter and the we try to think of doing nothing but hibernate I like to surround myself with cosy blankets.  For many years now I have crocheted and my favourite item to complete is blankets.  There is just something about sitting down and covering myself in a blanket that I… View Post
