I’m just getting ready to got to work in London for the next two days, so I thought I’d post a quick update.
So I made a start on the tree of life, it is such a beautiful pattern, but a little too expert for me I think, I’ve gotten into a bit of a mess with all the fpdc’s and bpdc’s and I don’t think it is quite looking how it should albeit it started off looking fabulous, I’ve got too much wip going on so I’ve given up! For now anyway.
Carousel part 3
Yes!!! Sue Pinner and Stylecraft launched part three of the carousel and I’m really enjoying it, I’ve never had the opportunity to JAYGO before but this pattern is full of it and I am loving it, no more joining at the end and sewing for what seems like forever!
My finished part 2 piece
Please excuse the following picture, I didn’t have a flat surface so it is draped over my laptop and desk, but this shows you 3 of the 16 hexagons joined, I love it
Not 100% on the colourway still but I’m sure it will grow on me.
I’ve done absolute nothing on lily pond cherry blossoms or mums Christmas jumper, I need to start getting a wriggle on with those as my wip is building 🙈
Little box of crochet
Ohhhhhhh I have been wanting these for ages!! This was Amanda blooms first ever LBC, before I’d even heard of her, well when I went to yarndale I managed to grab a box
I was trying to pace myself on carousel so last night thought I’d give one of these mushrooms a go, I am so pleased with it!!
I’ve got the other two to do, but they’re packed in my overnight bag for London tonight, the yarn from sheepjes is just simply divine.
You know those inserts you get in the magazine, the ones you never read? Well I’d read a lot of comments on social media about Marriners yarns, they’ve been around for a loooong time, well I found their brochure in one of my mags, if you’ve not looked at their site before, get on! Look at their prices! My delivery hasn’t come yet but I’ve placed an order for 8 skeins, including delivery £11.95, now that’s a bargain, well I think it is anyway from all of the comments and recommendations I’ve read anyway! They’re website is Marriner yarns its well worth a look at £1.00 for DK, I’ve ordered mermaid and plan to make a mermaid tail for my niece, and some other Autumn colours for a dinosaur tail for my nephew, more to add to the wip list!!
I think that’s all from me to be honest, best finish packing, sort my face out then off to London.
Happy hooking xx
