Hello dear blogland readers I hope you are all well. This last week has been rather tricksy in the Kimbles household, what with the bad weather, then my computer gave up - then hubbys computer got a virus even though protected (be warned) we have all felt out of kilter. My daughter couldn't get back to uni and hubby had some work cancelled because of weather - all in all a very weird week indeed, and a rather different start to the New Year than anticipated. But one really good thing to come out of this is that I have inspired two people to take up the hook! YeS little old me!! - a good friend of mine asked for a tutorial and is now happily making granny squares and the other one is my daughter, who a couple of times has tried and not had the patience, but this time snowed in and trying to get a relaxing break from uni work has mastered it!
She actually said how relaxing it was to crochet and that it took her mind off of all the impending work, I am really pleased!
I treated myself to these two books before christmas, I know lots of you have them, but I must say how much I have enjoyed reading them and trying out the patterns
Both by Jan Eaton they are worth every penny. So I decided to make a few squares to send to Mrs Twins
for her charity blankets, I did modify some of the patterns
So Sue these will be winging their way to your door when I have blocked them!
I have started to make the back of a small cushion I was making using the pattern I got from the Garden Bell so I am doing this variation of a plain treble, quite effective don't you think? I feel this would be nice in a stripe blanket...... will have to think about that one!
Lots of clashing colours! Love it!
Now my major projects are finished, I have twitchy fingers trying to decide on the next one - I am leaning towards another blanket, but that might change tomorrow!
Before I go I want to say huge congratulations to Lucy at Attic24 on the safe arrival of her baby boy! The picture of his tiny hand on hers actually brought a lump to my throat yesterday - stunning photo.
Stay snuggled, speak soon xx
