Yesterday I finished a new block for the Wolhemelblanket that I am making for Wietse. 8 blocks are now done, the 9th in progress. I have to make 12 blocks in total, and as the KAL provides of 32 blocks, I am able to choose which ones to use.

@Kathy: Regarding my right hand: Currently I am wearing a fingerless glove on my right hand - day and night, to keep my wrist warm.It is knit out of sock yarn, so not too thick. I only remove it for cooking and doing dishes/shower cq everything that requires water. If I don't wear my fingerless glove, especially on rainy or foggy days, the cold is hurting my arm,the carpal and Guyon tunnel seem to "shrink" and causing the nerves in my hand to block. As long as I keep my arm and hand warm, I can knit what ever I want. To be honest, I am tempted to make you a pair of fingerless gloves. I don't say it is the perfect cure, but in my case it is working, and better than swallowing medications until eternity... And I am so glad that I am able to knit...

Regarding knitting colour work: I usually combine the English and German knitting method - less tiring this way and it is easy when you know how to do it.
