Write It Down!

That is a note to self! I am making a small granny square blanket and have used patterns from two different sources to make up each square. I wrote down the main pattern but hadn’t written the edging one. After edging 3 or 4 squares, I realised I was using the wrong stitch! Crochet is easy to undo, fortunately!

I have a habit of forgetting things and keep saying to myself, write it down….but I forget to! There is no hope. My husband is a great one for writing lists but I am not, even if I do, I forget where I put it. If its really important, I will put pen to hand, guaranteed to see that 🙂

One thing I haven’t forgotten is that my latest purchase is on its way, a selection of linen thread from Lithuania. Haven’t treated myself for a while and am very much looking forward to the postie delivering my parcel. Took me a while to source it. I did find a lovely shop called A Yarn Story , well worth a look, they sell some beauitful yarns though at the time they had run out of the colours I wanted. I eventually found some on good old Etsy. I’m going to make some brooches with this fine thread, like the one I showed you last month.

Until that arrives, I will continue with the blanket, hopefully getting it finished next week then it will be for sale in my Etsy shop.


Have a lovey weekend 🙂


Finished :)

Well, very nearly finished….



I could make this blanket bigger but have run out of yarn! It has been discontinued and can only find a few odd balls online. This is the first large blanket I have made and I hate to think how much money I have spent on yarn for it! Still, it is for me so it’s ok. Well, I say it’s for me but it will be taken by at least one of the cats am sure. Have just got emough yarn left to hook a double crochet stitch edging.

I am now working on a summer shawl which may be suitable for a wedding as the yarn is light and has pretty sparkly sequins. Though the weather is awful today, Spring is just around the corner and I am trying to get ahead with my crochet, so its all about lightweight summer hooking. Pics to follow….
