Sorry it's been a while girls.
I've had such a busy couple of weeks. I'm back to work and with my bad back still very much in attendance the days are feeling longer than they actually are.
Anyway ... that's enough self pity, on to my makes.
To be honest there's not much to show for these last couple of weeks, I have been hookin' when I feel up to it in my spare time, and I am trying to get ahead on the blanket squares swap.
I am rather slow at crochet but I do enjoy it and I have got myself a small pile of lovely squares on the go.
I think it's a lovely idea and can't wait to see what squares everyone makes and swaps, won't it be nice to snuggle up with the laptop and a cuppa under a real blogger blanket once they are all sewn together.
Working with the wool again I have been itching to make something substantial. I am a keen amateur knitter and it has been years (23, eek!!) since I knitted an actual garment, it was a 'stunning' white batwing mohair jumper with a large rose pattern on one side, it took me forever and my Mam shrunk it after it's first outing!
I am a fan of Simply Knitting Magazine and this month's issue had a jumper on the cover that I thought I could fancy having a go at, so before I could talk myself out of it I ordered the yarn and have the knitting needles on standby.
