I received a lovely email from a lady called Sue telling me she had worked out the pattern for the vintage blanketI bought from a charity shop last week.

Vintage popcorn square...

Sue - who has a delightful blog Mrs Micawber - not only worked out the pattern, but proceeded to write a very comprehensive pattern for me; so much so that I produced the above square with no head scratching or colourful language! The commaraderie that has been shown through finding this vintage blanket and my enquiring about the pattern has warmed my heart no end. It took me about one hour to make this square, so I cannot imagine how long it took to work out the pattern. Lu44's prairie star afghan. Lily Pad Hexagons. 毛线球2008冬 - 白延利. Cotton Afghan.
