Am now starting on some little soft toys to go in the nursery to compliment the blanket and to go with the ones I made 3 years ago.
Not bad for a non-knitter! - even if I say so myself.
The pattern I worked from was one of my mum's priced at something like 6d (yes that is old pence!). However, for anybody interested I have discovered that it is still available: Google: Sirdar leaflet 3266
