Hi Daphne, I met you at the Toowoomba Craft Alive Show. I have never knitted patterns before other than simple cables. You have got me hooked on patterns now. I have so far complete 30, 25x25 cm squares in different shades of green and a few white for a blanket. These are from your book A Taste for Lace.
I asked my husband to find me some polystyrene to block my squares and he came home with cork tiles from Bunnings. They work beautifully.
