I was on the receiving end of yet more kindness this week. Unbeknown to me, some of my dear friends on Ravelry decided to make me a special blanket to show me just how much I was in their thoughts following Mr JK's death. Almost 50 wonderful people, mostly from the USA, but also from Canada, Australia, the UK and Europe, secretly knitted away on a variety of blocks in all my favourite colours, posting them to Hattie, who did an amazing job finishing the blanket off and putting it all together. Each block was knitted with love and good thoughts, sending me a knitted hug from each and every one of them. There were lots of tears as I unwrapped the blankets - yes, blankets, because they knitted Flo her very own one too! (Although she thinks the big one is hers too, naturally!) The blankets are absolutely beautiful and I will treasure them for ever. Whenever I'm feeling sad, I can wrap myself up in these wonderful glowing jewels and feel loved. Thank you to each and every one of you who took time to join in with this wonderful woolly hug. I have no more words so will leave you with photos, lots and lots of photos. xxx
