  1. Hi Heather, it was also nice to meet you last week. Not sure if you meant me, but I am not a podcaster, nor on RAV. I am on Plurk.
    All the yarns are gorgeously coloured. Altho’ for socks, I could imagine crocheting a blanket, centre out, with them. Making a vivid effect.
    The sock blanket has nicely varied squares and developing well.
    Isn’t it nice to haveshort breaks from the little ones? Gives energy for when they are back with you.
    Enjoy your week

    • Enid, I did mean you! I was pretty sure you hadn’t mentioned a podcast, but not completely.
      Those yarns would be lovely in a center out blanket, I agree. But I think crocheting a fingering weight blanket would take forever – I know the knitting one is!
      It was nice to have a short break from the kids, but I was definitely ready for them to come home.
      You have a good week too!
