A preview

Collage apps make it so easy to visualize the possible result: When I get to 30 squares I think I’ll start joining them as I go. This will be a real scrap blanket – I’m having fun using all my short lengths of yarn.   Save

Working with rainbows

There’s nothing like a rainbow to cheer, so I have really enjoyed working on this project. It could have been finished last month, but other things got in the way. Last night, however, the blanket was finished – except for the border. This morning, in daylight, I’ve chosen the colours for this, so it should…

Current WIP

This month has passed really quickly. It’s been fun to share with you each day, and today’s topic will confirm that I am still working on the Raspberry Lobelia blanket! The rows are now getting shorter – but I think that it will take most if not all of April to finish it. I may…

Video

Is this a cheat? I have no means of making a video about crochet, so I’m including a link to the one that I have found most useful  for instructions for making a corner to corner blanket. There are other videos and instructions on the net too, and, of course, the technique can be used…

Where

Where do you crochet? I always sit in the same chair with my sample squares and current yarns at my side. I took the above picture this morning – and noticed something I didn’t want to see!! In a few more rows I will need Aster – but look – a rogue whisp or too…

Texture

Spring

Beautiful blue sky – and the beginnings of Pear Blossom  What could be more perfect to welcome Spring? (Posted for National Crochet Month)

Joy

This would not be my expression if I lost a tooth…… 😀 (Posted late for National Crochet Month due to unforseen circumstances)

Tea Time

Tea time passes without recognition….. Coffee, however, is celebrated with peace and solitude 😉 (Posted late for National Crochet Month due to unforseen circumstances – more to follow….)

Weather

It’s March, and spring is here. To be honest – spring began in January. We have had bluebells flowering since then – bulbs were early, everything seemed out of ‘kilter’. Today is glorious. The sky is blue – as you can see from the above The second photo shows part of the view from my…

Neutral

Thanks to National Crochet Month I can celebrate my favourite colour of ‘neutral’. This particular shade of Stylecraft Special DK is the most useful colour of all. I have used it in several of my ‘creations’, and it’s in my current WIP too. If you haven’t found us yet, don’t forget to come and join…
