This is one heavy project

Huge, heavy, but oh-so-colourful

Close up – especially love the variegated with the three solids

Experimental stuffing 

I knew it was big. But this took

5 crochet/knitted blankets
2 shawls
I commercial throw blanket
2 thin quilts

It occurs to me it would be good for storing spare pillows too. I might have to stuff some in as well as the blankets to get it nice and firm.

I will do some decrease rounds next. The pattern just says to do one decrease round and then make a drawstring. But I’d rather reduce my stitch count first.

It’s a beautiful sunny Sunday and I must get out and walk today. I was hoping for at least some sunbathing yesterday but instead Tai Chi Man and I cleaned out the cold room, tidying, vacuuming, relabelling the storage containers, and then I had to make dinner for all five of us (ds1 came over).

Today is May 1st, a new month and a new motivation for raw foods. Tai Chi Man and I plan to eat raw for the month of May. I am hoping to see increased energy, joints feeling young again, clothes fitting a little looser. I have my holiday in June visiting family as extra incentive.

Here goes!
