Hello again my loves, I popped out briefly to check if the blog uploaded and to take a few pics. I can't believe how incredibly easy this is, I love, love, love it x
I just wanted to show you one of my birthday cards that I really like.....
I like it so much, I might even frame it :)
Okay, let's move on to the crochet.
A lovely lady at knit 'n' natter asked if any of us had any odd balls of yarn we no longer needed as a friend of hers was busy knitting toys for poorly children.
I dashed straight down to my shed and had a fab clear out (I'll show you a pic next time). I gave three big bags of oddments and brought a few in to the house for myself as I'm ready to take on a huge project!
It started like this....
I decided to use 20 different colours!!
I turned them into these....
315 beautiful colourful wheels. I tried sooo hard not to have two wheels the same!
I then turned them into these...
Fabulous stacks of granny circle squares. I love them and think that they look so beautiful. It's amazing how on a project like this the colours just work together so well.
I'm adding the cream border to 10 circles at a time and then sewing the ends in. I hate sewing ends in, but if I do it like this it's less tiresome.
The finished project is going to be a king sized granny blanket for my bed. I've measured it and have decided to make the blanket 20 x 15 squares which is 315 in total. I think this is wishful thinking and just know I' m going to have to make more colourful wheels.
I spend so much time making and creating for others, I thought it was time I made something for us :)
Mind you, it will be Summer time by the time it's finished!
I am enjoying it though, I'm enjoying the repetition on a pattern I really don't have to think about.
There is only one problem, I'm suffering from golfer a elbow from too much crochet!!!!!!
It is quite painful at times. My Dr said I should give up crochet for two months!!!!
My new iPad is a useful distraction :)
Bye for now my loves and happy crochet x x x x x x x x x
