I have been in much need of a snuggly crochet day and this morning it finally happened! I have been run off my feet what with the new job (even though it hasn't officially started yet!) and hubby away (he is back on FRIDAY oh joy!!!!) and kids and housework and projects and everything!!! So, after a not so very nice examination at the docs this morning I thought I would give myself some time out and look at what I collected from my boy's nursery that arrived today:
Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench
Oh yes, it's THAT book. I have been hankering after this book for simply ages and when I saw it for £4 at my son's nursery's book club, I just had to snap it up. So this morning, I have been dreamily browsing through some of the pages and eating a bit of this:
Here are some favourite projects that I would like to have a go at. There are so many of them. I would love to crochet them all!
As well as drooling all over my new book, I am also in a whirlwind about getting this blanket crocheted up for my friend Tracy who has asked me to do one for her Aunt. I love working on it. Each round is so relaxing to work and I love the colours. I have a sort of a pattern repeat going on - sort of. I am doing 3 colours then white, 3 colours then cream etc.. I am hoping that the white and cream will give it a calmer, more vintage feel.
And just for fun, here a pic of my two beans having their ice creams when I recently visited my mum's.
Happy times! At long last!!
Don't forget about the giveaway. I'm drawing a name tomorrow!
