Hello everyone, I’ve finally finished on the pain management programme. It’s been a long six weeks but well worth it and I feel so much better about myself. I’m generally able to keep my pain under control, in fact I’ve been able to come off some of my painkillers which has also been a great help as the side effects aren’t too pleasant. Would you believe it I’ve even bought a new bike and been able to go on a 15 mile bike ride with my husband and daughter. It was one of my goals at the end of the programme but to be honest something I never thought I’d be able to do again. You can’t imagine how happy it made me feel.
I actually started this blanket a few months ago but got sidetracked making other things including the granny square blanket in my previous post. In fact I’ve used pretty much the same colours in both blankets.
I’ve used Stylecraft Special Dk with a 4.5mm hook which gives a slightly more relaxed feel to the finished blanket. The colours I’ve used are: Pomegranate, Fondant, Candyfloss, Soft peach, Apricot, Shrimp, Citron, Lemon, Spring green, Aspen, Turquoise, Sherbert, Cloud blue, Aster, Denim, Bluebell, Lavender, Violet, Wisteria, Clemetis, Magenta, Boysenberry, Fuschia purple. I’ve used cream for the border.
I’ve done ten rows of Moss stitch for each of the stripes and six rounds for the border.
