the best time away, doing lots of things together as a family, and I've got a load of photos to show you, but I'll do that in a separate post. Anyway, we're back now and I've found my way round the laundry pile to the computer, where I've been trying to catch up on all your beautiful blogs and see what you've all been up to over the past week and a bit. I have to say, it's almost like finding the world of crafty blogs all over again - you really are an amazingly inspiring and creative bunch and it's been lovely just sitting down and catching up on what you're all up to in crafty-blog-land.
So...my month in crochet terms has felt busy, but looking at my photos, it doesn't seem especially productive. Hmmmm (or maybe I just need to be a bit more realistic about what it's actually possible to achieve when you have three children and a job...) The first thing I did in May, was my treat scarf. I love this project and I'm so pleased I did it. I promise that I will be doing a 'how to' for this as I know (rather thrillingly) that a couple of people thought about making one too. It is next on my 'to do' list, once I have posted my springtime throw ta dah (coming very soon!!!).
springtime throw. I have soooo nearly finished this blanket, I cannot wait to do my ta-dah post for it. My first ever blanket...sigh...I feel like a fully-fledged crocheter (ha ha, was going to say 'hooker' then, but not sure that sounds quite right).
I really do feel that having made a blanket is some sort of rite-of-passage for me as a crocheter/hooker and I love having a big project like this to work on over a long period of time - something that I can come back to when those smaller, instant gratification-type projects dry up temporarily. I have already decided what I'm going to do for my next blanket, which will be for our kitchen sofa, and I'm also planning a post on that in the very near future. That's just five-hundred posts in the pipeline, then. x
