    Hello, I bought this lovely pattern from your shop and really enjoyed making a blanket using two 400g balls of aran. It was a pleasure to just sit and while away the time.
    The blanket has been donated to a group who help the homeless here in the UK. I’m very likely to make another one sometime from this pattern or from one of your others as they suit my style of crochet perfectly.
    Thank you very much, Sarah.

    1. I am so glad you liked it Sarah! You are so kind for donating your blanket and I am sure they thoroughly enjoyed it!
