I am smiling as I type these words as I now know how to crochet! Basic stuff, small baby steps – but I CAN do it! It has had me confused and confounded for a long time. Thanks to a You Tube video I have mastered the Granny Square. Now there was frustration, unraveling and lots of swear words. And now, I hear the lady’s voice in my head when I crochet “put your yarn around your hook” over and over! I have made quite a few granny squares now, and am currently working on a blanket. Simple, just a never ending granny square –
I am sharing on the currently creative link-up that Kellie from Give a Girl a Blog is holding today my current goodies!
Right now, I am working on a blanket, it is a simple notion – from Martha Stewart, “if you can knit a scarf, you can knit a blanket” the pattern is here. I actually stumbled across this pattern via Kellie! I have started it recently and am moving along quite well. The kids are now requesting a knitted blanket also! This one is for our bed, so a queen size.
I am using pure wool, and it is surely warm! I have about 60″ done! So I am getting there. I am using three colours, White, navy and maroon. Long story, but our first ‘grown’ up set of sheets were this colour so it is a bit of a laugh!
The other creative outlet is PL – I have done a few weeks catching up here, and am still loving the simplicity and the process.
My other avenue of creating is cooking. My youngest kids turn four next week, so they had a special lunch at Kindy on Monday for them. Three individual tastes, three different cupcakes – For Brendan, chocolate cup cakes –
