Ordinarily extraordinary blanket


I must say a huge thank you
to my dear friend
for such a wonderful tutorial...
for without it I would never have finished my very own
ordinarily extraordinary blanket...
Full of granny goodness...
and oh so warm and cozy...


It is now firmly placed on my lap and there it shall stay...
It will always remind me of what blogging has done for me...
given me friends in far away places who inspire me
and encourage me with there kind words and generous heart...


I know too, that you my dear blog friends
love making my tutorials
and I still am so amazed by your kind words and tales
of far away places
stringing up your grandma twinkle garland and hearts
for all to see and share...


It makes me feel so proud and most humble...
you are all so sweet!!!

I keep coming back to this tutorial. It's all become a foregone conclusion: sooner or later I'll be knocking up a version of ordinarily extraordinary warmth. Loving your snuggly take on things.

I'm loving your colours and so wanting to make my own Ordinarily Extraordinary blanket. Wondering how many blankets I might need before winter is done??

Keep on sharing, it keeps me inspired.
