There is nothing as cosy and comfortable as a beautiful handmade blanket.
As I moved to Cornwall, my spiritual home, last year I have felt more comfortable as each week has passed.
I am inspired by the beautiful landscape, both the woodlands and the coastal areas, there is a ruggedness to the moors around Bodmin and the north coast that really makes me feel at one with nature and I tried to reflect that in this design.

Cornish Comfort is full of rich texture with a wonderful mixture of both simple and more complex stitches.

Cornish Comfort is also my featured design as a Stylecraft Blogstar this year and you will be able to join many people in the new Stylecraft MAL (make a long) group on Facebook, and of course in my own Facebook group Helen’s Hookaholics.
