Knitted blanket

In my last post I mentioned my colleague, who is partially blind. Last week she asked me if I can mend this blanket, which is full of holes. This blanket belongs to her father – he is 90 years old and still uses it. His grandmother made it to for him!! I took it home and I stitched all the holes and the seams. I looked at the knitting and the pattern his grandmother used. It was mitered knitting squares. The wool is so soft and all made from the same kind of wool. It is seven by ten squares, each square around measures around 5 inches. Then she knitted the stripes around it.




My colleague, who is partially blind, knitted these squares and I helped her by stitching them together to make this blanket. This is her fifth one. I have blogged about her other blankets in Nov 2014, Nov 2016 and Dec 2016.


I finished knitting this scarf for myself.


Knitted skirt

I knitted this skirt a few years ago as a sample for a workshop I run. I gave it to my granddaughter as a present recently.


Two blankets

This is more blankets knitted by my colleague and I stitched the squares together for her. She knitted it all and arranged the colours. The big one is 54 squares and the small one is 16 squares.



My colleague, who is visually impaired, knitted a blanket. She chose the colours and the arrangement, and I stitched it for her. She was very delighted and I think she is close to finishing her next one.

A previous blanket she made can be viewed here.


Today’s post is about the items which are made in my workshops. People who made them are of different levels. It includes knitting, crochet and embroidery.
