Bookcrossing blankie and baby blankie

I have created a square for the Bookcrossing afghan / blanket which is being put together and then will be auctioned at the UK Bookcrossing Unconvention in Brighton at the end of June.

I was trying to do one with an interesting VK symbol on (for Veganknitter) but this was much too hard and I thought my brain would explode, so I settled on knitting a square with a V on.

I used some cream Rowan cotton and it looks OK - it could be better but I only had until the end of May.

My friend Is has also sent me a lovely photo of Roscoe's baby blankie in action - here he is with grandmother Mary. All together now, aaaaah.

Thank you Scott.

Looking forward to meeting you and buying you a pint of British beer!

Veganknitter, you can see your square in place now here: It's top right, three rows down, three squares in.

We're actually going to raffle the blanket rather than auction - I think it's fairer that way. Scott, be careful what you wish for. If you win it you'll need an extra piece of luggage to get it home!
