Good morning all!
Well here she is..
in all her splendid granny glory!
I did actually finish last weekend, but as we all know
grey days mean gloomy snaps!
I was (and still am) unsure of my colour combination,
I guess that's the whole point of your first project,
to learn from your mistakes (and there are a few!)
I like this combination however..
Having not blocked(pinned and dampened, to evenly shape the blanket) the squares individually,
I had to improvise with a sofa cushion and a towel.
Worked a treat, and what a difference!
More gratuitous crochet snaps warning!
Whilst I'm harping on about my newly found obsession,
I feel as a crochet disciple I must pass on the wisdom of the hook!!
And I already have two followers!!
A few weeks back I met up with a fellow blogger Lisa some of you may know her from
It was a first for both of us.
I think we hit it off straight away, which is strangely random,
to be chatting away to someone you dont know, but you do actually know so much about them!?!
To cut a long story short we had a lovely couple of hours trying to synchronize our crochet skills whilst drinking lots of tea.
I think the tea drinking was a little more sucsessful, so another meet up is on the cards for sure!
I havent bored you I have inspired you to take up the hook,
if not, then follow my journey into the crochet world....
.....I need more wool (she cries in despair!)
