I read something online recently about a popular frugal living blog (that I had not heard of) having suddenly disappeared. In that case, the reason for the disappearance was not clear at the time. However, a mention was made in the discussion about blogs being abandoned because they had been hacked. At that point, my mind was drawn to my poor, little neglected blog and I wondered how it had been fairing during my absence (for which there is no particular reason).
Well, as you can see, it is still here and seems none the worse for its lack of attention. I opened the blogger site, hoping that it was still logged on, because I'm not sure I would have remembered the password (or where I made a safe note of it) and, luckily, it was.
Not only was it still logged on, but there was a draft post containing the photos you see here. I guess this is a snapshot of what I was up to 5 months ago! So, where better to re-start than to tell you about them.
It turned out a nice size for a cot blanket or sofa throw after I finished off the yarn on the border.
It's listed in my Folksy shop along with a few other crocheted blankets.
Staying with the vintage theme, these mittens are knitted in some yarn that I was given that was originally sold in ounces!! I think fingerless hand-warmers have had their day and mittens are making a comeback.

Bye for now
