It starts...


After a number of false starts, a day searching for clarification of instructions (thanks Jeanna), and a few wonky squares... I have made a start on what will be my version of the Babette Blanket


There are 126 squares (in varying sizes) to make, and lots of colour changes (although at this stage I plan to stick with my 4-colour green and taupe/grey scheme) but I'm up for the challenge...

I like how the squares are turning out so far. My tension might be a bit tight (I haven't actually measured it beyond checking that the squares match) but as long as it's consistent that won't matter. It should make a very warm blanket!

I totally lost the plot for a bit mate but getting back into it now

Thanks R, I'll keep that in mind!

I'm working at getting back on track... it's not easy but 'baby steps'...

At the end of the day it was my decision and therefore I need to make it work for me. It doesn't make things any easier but like yourself the thousands of other women who have gone through similar things (and no doubt been in worse situations), I will get through it - particularly given the support an love of the people around me (physically and virtually).
