  1. Only 2 more to go, making a blanket whilst having chemo which I will donate to the Unit when finished – thank you so much – when are Y and Z likely to be out as need to finish it soon!! 😍🤗

    • Hi there! That’s great!! I was unable to knit during chemo, my needles kept getting in the way. But I crocheted a lot 🙂
      I’m currently working with the Y (out tomorrow) and another extra square featuring a smiley. Next week I’ll be publishing the Z. I hope this works for you!
      Hugs

      • Thank you so much Cecilia you’re an inspiration, I have been crocheting as well depending on canulla but now got picc line fitted, just had last chemo so feeling pretty yuk but got a break before radiotherapy so should be ok for finishing blanket! Will definitely add a smiley 😃xx

      • Last chemo, yay!! That’s something to celebrate, right? At least once you stop feeling queasy 😛
