  1. Hi Eleonora. I have a question, but first I want to start of by thanking you! Thank you so much for this great CAL. You’ve put so much love en detail in the whole project. This is my first CAL and I’m loving it! I’ve made a blanket befor and it took my ages. It felt like so much work. Following the CAL, I work on it every week. Every week a couple of rows really works great. I can’t wait until it’s Friday again so I can make my blanket grow some more. What a difference from my first blanket. It’s so much more joyful. So, a big thank you for giving me that.

    Oh, right, I also had a question, haha. I’m curious how big your blanket was at this point. Not that it matters much, just out of curiosity. So I can see how mine is doing compared to yours.

    Lots of love from a former Dutch coastal girl, now living in Germany
