I once went to a fancy dress party dressed in a patchwork knitted blanket with a hole in the middle for my head, and tied around my waist to keep it on. When asked what I was dressed as, I replied, 'A blanket'. What I was thinking I have no idea. My other fancy dress moments that I remember are a Pierrot clown, and a 1920s woman. The clown was the best one, and I still have a picture of that which I quite like. It was when I was about 16, and my Mum made the costume. Anyway, this blanket is not to wear. It has taken me about three years to complete. The lockdown has meant that I have finished it more quickly than I would have done. It is from an idea of the designers Arne and Carlos, which is to just knit two rows of a colour then change. I have enjoyed the process of choosing colours. Sometimes there has been a theme, (rainbow, daisies, ice-cream) and sometimes just what looks good to me. Occasionally randomness has been involved. It is very mindless knitting, and I can even do the stitches without looking, so without the need to wear my glasses.
