I'm being unfaithful to my knitting. It's been all about crochet recently. I've been a blah about my knitting, so I thought I would pick up something else and have fun with it. Boy, was it a welcome distraction. And look what I managed to achieve in about a week or 10 days.
I was teaching a friend to make granny squares for a blanket and I was inspired to make a few squares as well. While making the squares, Keira requested that I make her a bag. As it was her birthday, how could I refuse. 2 days later - voila! Bag - completed. Child - happy. Result!!
I've always loved the hexagon blankets on Ravelry. So I thought, why not start one of my own. I had bought on ebay 750g of DK cotton in 5 colours (pink, light burgundy, pale yellow, gold and cream) and I'll be using that for my blanket. I need 99 hexagons for my blanket and I've done about 25 so far. Watch this space.
Finally, I've finished my beaded crochet bracelet. I may have mentioned it before, it was Keira's birthday. I had another request by the Princess herself, that she needed the bracelet. So I made it for her. (DH is always telling me off that I spoil the children - I know!!) And because I enjoyed making it so much, I decided to start another one for me. I'll show that another day.
