Tree of life.




At last got the computer to work!!!!  so finally here are a couple of photos of the tree of life blanket I've knitted for my forthcoming grandchild.

 I must admit I'm VERY pleases with it...its the first time I've attempted to do cable work and eventhough I didnt stick to the actual pattern I think its worked out well.

Oh well done   that looks really very special

I've been eyeing up something similar for this past fortnight and wondering if my hands are on the mend enough to tackle it.
I do a lot of natural dyeing and have an awful lot of bits of aran wool to use up and thought that the trees would look good with them.
Did it take ages ? and was the weight as you worked a strain on your hands and elbows ?

It would be good to have photos of the new grandchild on it and with you in the photo too
