I have finished a couple of Noodehead's Open Wide Pouch
|before the zipper were trimmed|
|a little collection of Jo Morton fabrics|
|It's nice to see she makes as much mess as me!|
But more importantly .......
After years of wanting to learn how to crochet and never having the proper time, you may remember that I visited Yarndale last September and did a mini class learning to crochet a bowl - which I did - Yay!
Most people would learn to do Granny Squares or something like but not me - in the new year I started on my blanket using Lucy's Attic 24 Cosy Stripe pattern. I had lots of the Stylecraft Special DK which is an acrylic yarn that is really soft and supple and is very easy to work with. With a bit of help from my friends in a local crochet group that I have
a show dedicated to yummy yarns
I have plans to make this shawl and it uses a Lace weight yarn
And after dithering and dathering between some of the FABULOUS hand dyed yarns I chose this one
|Alpaca, Silk and Cashmere - so soft!|
It now looks like some more of the crochety gals may be having their own Crochet Along
A couple of colour-ways of 4ply have been purchased, though one may be used for socks.
Back in September I coveted one of the lovely pottery yarn bowls but persuaded myself that it would be a silly purchase.
But I was egged on today by some very naughty ladies and sucummed to this beauty
