I wish I could take credit for this! I started my own this week, and I have ten stuffed hexagons so far (knitted on 5mm DPNs rather than the recommended 3.5mm, because on Iona, blankets need to be at least double thickness!).
I can only assume the bees are fairly dozy today- the weather in Edinburgh's starting to turn, and I can't see Iona being much better. J will be finding out next week, when she goes up to finish her latest blanket and plant some fruit bushes- today's trip to the garden centre could have gone on a lot longer!
