My big crochet reveal is coming...

Eeek!  Can you wait?   I can't.*



I finally finished my first ever blanket.  It was grey and dreary outside on Sunday but I was still out in the garden holding a photo shoot with the dog!  (Never work with children or animals: so true.)

Have a great week and speak soon.

*disclaimer:  I have only made a giant granny square.  The edging went wrong so it's a bit frilly and I'm not very good at darning in the ends.  Crochet veterans will not be at all impressed but please humour me!!

  13. It is gorgeous, and who cares about the edge, hehe I have just finished my mums at long last and its a bit wibbly around the edge, but I think that just adds to the uniqueness of it. Your pup is so sweet.

  14. Well done - it feels such an achievement doesn't it. I'm on my second now and its going much faster. I seem to do the initial chain too tight and even if I use a larger hook just for the chain, it pulls a bit. Noone seems to notice though. I am excited because I did my first bit of crochet that involved increasing and decreasing !! Lily. xxx

  21. It looks lovely and I'm impressed at your staying power. I gave up on mine half-way through and decided it was big enough. Seeing yours I wish I hadn't.

    Love your new layout, it looks great.
