I'm lucky I can type

Its been a while since I last posted but I have good excuses.
Too busy making stuff and thats the best excuse I think.

The crocheting has been coming on leaps and bounds. I've now made a small blanket for M's teddy, one for E's stinky bunny and one for a friends little girl.


The one above was done in 3 days. My friend said I should make something for her little girl rather than buy, so in my stupid wisdom I thought I would do a blanket.

My wrists and fingers are now paying the price. They ache, as do my shoulders and neck. Don't get me wrong, I loved making it and I am really enjoying this whole crochet lark, its a great way to wind down at the end of the day but doing something like this in such a small timeframe makes it a hellish nightmare.

I do love it though.

Other than that its just been normal half term madness here and I am so ready for them to go back on Tuesday. Theres only so much entertaining you can do for 3 kids under 5!

I'm now starting on another blanket for M. She picked the colours she wanted, not only that, she picked the most expensive wool there was in the shop. Not happy with the DK selection at £1.09 a ball, no we had to have the £3 balls.

So the next blog post will hopefully be an update of how its going or even a completed blanket! Right I am going now because my hands can't type anymore.

Bye for now!

Brilliant blankets! My hands ached like mad too when I first made one, you soon get used to it though ;):)

It's so nice to hear that I was not the only mother quite happy to ship the kids back to school.

The blankets look really sweet. I've been wanting to try a granny square, but I keep getting sidetracked.
