Is it really November?

The past few weeks have been unsettled here. I have had little time to myself, so the internet has had to take a very back seat. Granny squares have been a godsend. Not only are they portable (think hospital bedside) but they require no noisy equipment (think sewing machine). They can be made at any… Continue reading Is it really November?

The penultimate!

It doesn't look much, does it? Wisteria and Storm Blue edged with Gold. It's almost, but not quite, the last square of the Temperature Blanket. I can tell you that today's starts with Lavender in the Centre, and it too will be edged with Gold, but the intervening colour is yet to be determined by… Continue reading The penultimate!

Five colours – a project

Remember this? The blanket I showed you on Friday was made with squares of the same sequence.

If you think you might like to join in with the stashbusting exercise for 2018 there are preliminary details… Continue reading On the subject of stashbusting…..

Thinking ahead

The next few weeks will be very busy. I have a lot to do on several fronts, and crochet will probably have to take a back seat. It's probably the same for you all too. Progress on the Temperature blanket continues. I have begun to work the edge of each block, just two rounds of… Continue reading Thinking ahead

November Mix and Match

November is a very busy month here. There is a lot going on, much to do and, frankly, not much time for crochet. However, I have managed to keep up to date with the temperature blanket (lterally 10 minutes a square) and made a start on the Spirit of November. It's only a start, especially… Continue reading November Mix and Match
