Merry Christmas!

It’s been a while since my last update, and the reason why is I was unexpectedly inundated with Christmas orders and I didn’t say no!!

It’s been manic, working full time, kids house and husband, but I did it.

I’m aching today, finished my last order at 01:45 this morning, 4 mermaid tails in one week, I didn’t think I could do it, but I did, and they’re lovely, I did have to draft in a little help from my sister yesterday (good job I taught her to crochet in time!) and a little help from one of the lovely girls at crochet group yesterday morning.

I’m off work now until 3rd January and my mission is to finally finish my mandala madness for my sister and her husband, that’s taken a back seat for far too long.  And also to make myself something!

Here’s one  of the tails I finished

full-tail

 

The multicoloured one is my favourite and I used James c Brett party time chunky, I love the way the colours change and that’s what kept me interest in it!
I finally finished mums top, designed by Frank and olive, but I’m not too happy with it if I’m being honest, the written pattern for the collar wasn’t very clear and nowhere near enough yarn to finish it


I’ve not even started this months little box of crochet, which is for me!!! So after going to mum and dads for Christmas I’m going to start it!

I also bought some absolutely stunning drops yarn in alpaca silk pistachio, to make a shawl for myself out of simply crochet magazine but I’ve not started that either, so I’ll make a start this week.

So it’s Christmas morning, kids have opened their presents, they seem pleased, I’m off to my mum and dads shortly where I can be the child again, for a short while anyway, I wonder if Santa has been for me!

Merry Christmas & happy hooking xxx

      Thank you! It’s similar, starts off with 35 FHDC then joining into a circle, then DC clusters increasing so yes similar, I got the pattern from WordPress from a crocheter off the hook, if you google granny square mermaid tail you’ll find it, much quicker than any other pattern I’ve done!! X
