I hope you’re all keeping well and happy.
It’s a while since we got together, so here’s a bit of a catch up. Christmas time sped by in a bit of a whirl, what with all the making of yummy stuff, but all gifts were gratefully received and I got a lovely surprise on Christmas Day when my beautiful daughter telephoned to let me know she’d got engaged! No specific date yet, but it will be later on this year, so 2015 is sure to be a busy one. One of her requests is to have knitted/crochet flowers, (the real ones bring allergic reactions with them), so over the next few months you will, doubtless be seeing yarny bouquets and suchlike things.
Over the Christmas period I began to make a crochet granny square blanket.
I had heaps of yarn in the stash as I was going to join in with an online mystery knit-a-long. I bought the materials in anticipation, only to discover that I didn’t like the pattern one bit! It was all diagonal stripes – set off my astigmatism something shocking. so there I was with all these lovely coloured bundles of woolly potential…. what to do? what to do?
I wouldn’t necessarily have picked these colours to go together, it was quite a nice surprise to see how well the bright blue and bright green set off the other tones.
It isn’t quite finished yet, I’ve still got the edge to do. I’ll probably also crochet the squares together on the ‘wrong’ side in order to make the seams stronger.
So that’s what I’ve been up to since we last met.
Bye for now!
