Pinwheel blanket

Pinwheel Blanket 1

My pinwheel blanket. I started it when Mam Llanelli went into hospital, and finished it after she died. I've always used knitting (and now crochet) as a way of meditating, switching off from the outside world. This blanket helped me relax when Mam was ill and I was worrying; and it helped me to grieve for her. Even though she never saw it, or even knew about it, it will always remind me of her last weeks on Earth - and also of the huge gap she has left in the world. Having said that, it's a very happy blanket. I think she'd have liked that.
