Yep – that’s me. I seem to keep starting things… and then not finishing them! Sound familiar?
So I started a red cloche hat for the pink one to take on holiday.
It was so important I finish it I even took it to the pink ones ballet lesson for crochet club (that’s what the mums do while the little girls dance!),
It even came to the garage when I was waiting for a tyre to be changed too!
So have I finished it? Of course I haven’t… I got distracted with other projects!
Like the bag I just had to make….. but then haven’t used yet!
Then I did a bit of pattern testing for Red Haired Amazona….. I just adore her colour choices!
Then I went to work on a blanket. One of the ladies at ballet is making a wonderful circle and square blanket like this one. She’s using exactly the same colours and it’s looking lovely.
So I thought I might make one too………. (I know, I’m starting far too many things here and not finishing so why on earth would I then start a blanket?)
I managed to grab myself a bargain of some yarn – Sirdar cotton. It should of been £5 a ball, but somehow it as on offer at £10 for 10 balls…… the only slight problem being they are all beiges and browns. I do like beiges and browns….. but also some colour. Queue a grovel in my ever growing stash to find…….. (Yep the photo gives it away a bit…….) PURPLE!
So my circles are bigger than the original blanket, so I’ve adjusted the sides of the squares too!
Look at all those ends….. I will never learn to sew them in as I go!
So I now have 9 squares completed. Not exactly the whole blanket I had planned. Probably it’ll be a cushion cover, but in the meantime…. what can we do with them?
Crochet noughts and crosses of course!!!!
