Hello Hello Hello
Well here it is ...at last
...Please let me introduce you to my...
Medium sanity saving snugly shoulder book reading wrap blanket
I am so so so pleased and a teeny bit proud of myself
this is my first crochet project
I had times when it seemed like I would be crocheting its stripes for eternity
but I persevered through the doldrums
and came out the other side with deep happiness.
I always envied people who could crochet
and now I am one
What do you think???
Here it is in it's rightful place
I had trouble getting up this morning
It is just far too cozy
and it looks so pretty with my new pillow cases
The edge is a little on the crinkly side
I followed Lucy's instructions from Attic 24
which are fantastic
although in my eagerness I didn't read the note about
crocheting through the back loops only
until I was on the third round
Oooops...that could be why
I made it using stylecraft special DK
which was great to work with and fantastic value
Now that I have faith in my new crocheting self
I have splashed out on super luscious yarn for my next crochet adventure
more on that soon
(I am soooooo excited that I'm finding hard to keep it to myself)
I have been having a tinker with my blog today
you did notice, didn't you?
Well, I say tinker, when actually I just tried to change one little setting and it all went a little
!! crazy !!
I then spent the next couple of hours
trying to get it back to how it was in the beginning
but then got a little carried away
thank goodness my lovely G stepped in to stop me using my WHOLE day up!
he is a whiz
so calm and kind
"ah, that's alright mum, don't worry, I'll sort it out"
and he does
love that sweet boy of mine
(he got me this little heart too, must be careful not to over use!)
Anyway I had best go and make myself feel like I have achieved something useful today
but my brain is now mush
Oh well, I WILL be more focused tomorrow
NOTE TO SELF : NO TINKERING WITH MY BLOG TOMORROW
Hope you are having a lovely week
