Jumping on the bandwagon


I know this blog has been all about the kidlets of late, but don't think I'm not crafting away in the background. How else does a SAHM stay sane?

I've jumped on the crochet bandwagon. Many of us have taken inspiration from this blanket and have used these helpful instructions to create our own crocheted blanket. As I'm new to crocheting I used these instructions but found I didn't love the look. So as usual, I went and made some adjustments.

I'm using 8 ply cotton from the Bendigo Woollen Mills in colours Latte, Denim, New Ochre, Parchment & Light Teal. It's soft and luscious to work with. I'm loving it - portable, quick and satisfying to see a circle made in no time at all.

Now to start joining them...

Truely lovely. Makes me want to try crochet, again. But have failed so many times, will just enjoy looking at yours.

The colours are beautiful Julia. I don't want to sound silly but I haven't seen granny circles before. How do you sew them together? I look forward to seeing.....
