I'm afraid one must knit it, Terry, but it would be prettier than the old,
torn blankets I use. I don't have an afghan made with my own yarn, would
you believe. Looks as though we'll all need extra blankets this winter, if
the info folks have heard proves correct. I have several hundred iris in
peat pots. I wonder if the basement or cold greenhouse would be better for
overwintering them. Anyone?
