Wrist warmers.  They look nice while they’re being worn but don’t look so good here.  There was no-one around to take the photo for me, I tried wearing one and taking a photo with the other hand but it didn’t work very well 😀

Just In Time

My neck is aching from spending hours looking down (I can’t turn my head to the left at the moment!) but I’ve managed to finish dad’s blanket with just a couple of hours to spare. Thanks for the lovely comments about this blanket on my last post xx

My squares are neat and untwisty until I do the joining round, then they twist. Why do they do that? It’s not because of the size, it happens no matter what size I make them – neatness, until I join. At least they’ve all twisted evenly 😀 Here’s the blanket yesterday morning, just after I’d done two rounds of the border then ripped them out because I decided it needed to be five squares wide, not four

I was crocheting the final round of the border at 7am this morning (I now have pins and needles!), here it is half an hour later.  The light’s not great at the moment but I couldn’t wait to take a photo!  I’m not sure about the size, it’s 46″ x 36″ so it’ll be ideal for a lap blanket.  If he’d prefer it a bit bigger I’ll bring it back home with me and work on it.  Slowly 😀

The edges look a bit ruffled, I promise they’re not 😀

I’m taking dad to the pub after I’ve been to his house.  Because I need a drink 😀

I can now eat and sleep, and I should probably catch up with the washing, hoovering, dusting, gardening…….

New Baby!

Meet my little nephew, born on 2nd February! I spent a frustrating five days – FIVE LOOOOONG DAYS!! – waiting to meet him because I’ve had a cold. I haven’t had a cuddle yet – I’m still a bit sniffly. But I’ve finally said hello and he’s fabulous. And look, he’s using my ripple blanket!
