Good Morning, you see I am trying to become a good regular blogger again!  I have been indulging in a little hookiness lately, not as fast as I used to be, but hey that's no problem.  You may recall on one of my previous posts I started this project

Well after making half a dozen squares I just wasn't "lovin" it, it just wasn't working in my mind. It's quite a decision isn't it when you have to decide whether to abandon your hard work or limp on!  Well it had to be abandon I'm afraid and I don't regret it for a minute.  So it was back to the drawing board.  I was combining colours and thinking about what would go with my lounge. I wanted to Keep It Simple and traditional.  So now I am working on these

I am loving the colours and the simplicity of this pattern, I think sometimes I look for different and fussier stitches but there is something so comforting and scrummy about traditional grannying!  I have been signed off from the hand clinic ( have done all they can for me) so I have to be really careful, do special thumb exercises and rub in pain relieving cream.  Hey ho never mind - I just have take more notice when they get a bit painful and STOP!!!   I did invest in a soft touch crochet hook and that has helped me with the crochet thank goodness so all is not lost! 

Have a good day

Speak soon xx


  1. I love the new version; the colours go together beautifully, don't they? You must be 'lovin it' now! It's a shame that the hand clinic can't do more for you, but I'm glad the soft crochet hook is helping. I think I shall get myself one.


  2. Hi Kim,
    Your new design is wonderful.
    Hope your hand will be without pain. The new crochet hook will help, I'm sure!

  3. Lovely colours! I might google those "soft hooks" - they sound good; I often get a sore thumb. And don't worry about regular blogging - just do it when it suits YOU, don't worry about us. We're happy to see your blog updates, but we won't forget you in between posts. :-)

    My internet has been playing up, hopefully all is well now.

  5. While I really like your first squares, I think you have it spot-on with the new ones.
    Unfortunately I am in the same position as you with a current project - I really think it just does not feel right
