Well this is a rarity ! Being able to blog within a few days of a previous blog . My husband is at home this week enjoying the last week of the school holidays with us . So I'm able to sneak bits of time to do my thing !!! Oh boy have I been having yarntastic fun . Let me share with you my latest blankety project , which I am seriously excited about . A couple of weeks ago my very heavily pregnant friend Heather ( www.littlebird.co.uk ) came on a flying visit with her lovely mum and sister , to bestow upon me two rather large bags full of FANTASTIC tapestry wool . Heather had asked me some time ago if I would be able to make good use of it " of course I can " was my reply . Cogs started turning and ideas started formulating some weeks ago . When it arrived and Heather and her family had left I was besides myself . In an instant I had it all tipped out on my living room floor and started arranging group of colour . Oh what fun !!
So you get the idea , lots and lots of lovely skeins of endless possibility's . Well Saturday evening I couldn't restrain myself any longer , I had to have a play ( instantly I felt guilty , as I could have be working on my Hares but I just told myself " get it out your system lass "). So I climbed into bed and sat and looked at the wool , then the idea came to me, CIRCLES !! As there is only small amounts of wool in a skein , this seriously limits the size I can work to . With this in mind I started to crochet .
I am really enjoying crocheting these little gems and I have already decided how the blanket will be structured . But I think I will keep you guessing for a little bit longer on that score . Goodness me I'm a tease !
But doing these circles has made me feel a tad guilty that I've started another blanket without completing one of my other two first . So with this thought in mind I tried to appease my conscience by working on my other two blankets too . I completed another 5 rounds on my youngest's blanket .
Then I worked some more Granny's on my eldest's blanket , I've only got 37 more Granny's to go then I can do the boarder ( I've already done 113 ).
So the last few day's have been crochet heaven . But I would just like to share one last image with you . A colleague of mine asked me to make something for her to use as teaching aids , we 've had quite a chuckle in our house about this little job.
Yes it's a breast , It is to be used to teach mothers how to breast feed . When I got the request I thought where the heck am I going to get a pattern for that . But a quick look on revelry sorted it and I found a free pattern from the 'Lactation Consultants of Great Britain ' www.lcgb.org . How fabulous!!
So I'm off to squeeze a bit of crochet into this evening as tomorrow we are away for the day . So thanks for popping by and ta ta for now . x
