Helloooo! Freezing isn’t it?! Well if you’re in the UK it is, we had some snow today! It hasn’t settled but we’re due for more tonight.
I think with this weather I just want to crochet warm jumpers and cardigans, I’m like a magpie for a nice Aran at the moment, and constantly starting something new.
I’m still working on my spirit of life cal, I’m taking it easy, not rushing and I can quite honestly say I am enjoying every stitch, when I first bought it, it was the first time I looked at a pattern and questioned my ability to do it, I think it was the mosaic but I’ve done it and it was a hell of a lot easier than I thought
I’m really pleased with it, so much so I’ve bought the volcanic version too!! Lord knows when I’ll actually get around to starting it, I’m not on the blocks, once these are joined it’ll be back to working in rows
We had our huge scheepjes delivery last week for the next Crochet sanctuary I treated myself to these buttons, I have been hunting high and low for these buttons and couldn’t find them anywhere!
I love them! I’ll only use them for extra special people ha! I got these pegs too!
Way too cute!!
I’ve also started the Poet cardigan Little Golden Nook I love it!! I’m using WI soft and smooth tweed Aran from Hobbycraft, although I’ve got to admit the sleeves are starting to bore me a little I’m almost at the end of my first one, only the other sleeve to go and it’s done!
On Saturday night we decided to go for a walk with the dogs to New Brighton beach on the Sunday, it’s so cold here I thought I’m going to wrap up!! Can you believe I didn’t have a hat??? I don’t wear them but quickly crocheted myself one for Sunday
I love it!!!! I just used some style craft Aran I had and got this fabulous pattern from 5 little monsters and it was free!!! Less than 3 hours and I was the proud owner of a hat! Don’t you just love crochet?!
Helen shrimpton has also released a new pattern (help me!) I’ve had to buy it, I absolutely need to get some wips out of the way before I start it, it’s lovely! It’s called The lost garden I’m thinking of some fresh colours for this, duck egg blue, whites, but trying to think of another 3 colours.
I’ve finished my designs for the next crochet sanctuary! I also finished my testing for another designer, which I enjoyed doing very much. I’ve just got one large project for knit raft Hobbycraft blog I’m procrastinating with! Purely because I’m enjoying all of these patterns!
Oooooooh fab bargain yesterday!!! Facebook market place is good sometimes for yarny finds, there was a lady who had just closed her craft store not far from me, and she was selling 15 x balls of Rico creative Aran this has to be the softest Aran EVER it’s normally £3.99 a ball, I got 15 for £30!!!!! I reckon I’ll get a few sweaters/cardigans out of this!
Anyway, I’m going to work on that project I’ve been putting off tonight, unfortunately it’s not quite big enough for keeping me warm, but, I’ll feel better for putting a dent in it that’s for sure!
