A New Look 

A change of theme! What do you think? It’s the newest one from WordPress – just announced today, so I thought I’d give it a try.

The colours of the Sunflower blanket are certainly cheery on a dreary day, but I can’t wait to finish it.

I’m really enjoying seeing the rows get shorter and shorter. The last row took an hour, it won’t be long before I can manage two within the hour…. Must keep going, even though I have very little crochet time.

What are you working on? Leave a crochet link below and I’ll gladly come over and take a look.

 

 

Yarn Bomb: Byron Bay

What fun!

That Girl Who Crochets

We spent the day at Byron Bay last weekend. Byron Bay has a reputation for relaxed people, backpackers, and being eccentric. Home to the coolest markets ever, this place feels like a world away from the Gold Coast. The main part of town is only a couple of streets, but is always packed! I noticed someone had yarn bombed one of the round-a-bouts! It was so bright and colourful and grabbed the attention of heaps of people! If you are ever close by it’s worth a stop, even for some fish and chips on the beach!

Dreaming crochet 

Yes, I really did. And I can’t wait to try out what I dreamt!  However, I can’t try it until I finish the sunflower blanket. What does that mean?

Well, if nothing else it means that you can’t see anything above  After all, at the moment it is just all a figment of MY imagination 😉

 

 

A Chapter of Accidents

Working under pressure is not a good thing – especially when the deadline has been set by yourself!

This blanket is a belated birthday present. It’s for a special person but was started late due to family circumstances. She has no idea that it’s coming – but I would like to finish it within six months of her birthday. I started to make it on 16th August. Progress has been slow, and it was with great rejoicing that I began to decrease and the rows became shorter ……

….. only to discover that I had made an error!

I had to unwind several rows and the increasing started again. Finally all is redone and I’m now on the ninth row after the corner.

I’ve tucked the crochet hook under the current row to show where I am. I probably won’t get much done today – my crafting time is very little at the moment.
