Whilst my sewing demons may have been getting the better of me recently, although last night I did cut out a True Bias Sutton blouse, my crochet has seen no such challenges.
I’ve been working on my latest baby blanket. Crocheted purely for pleasure and for my imminent but ‘not bothered if they don’t sell’ Folksy and Etsy shops.
Before I went away I had run up these. I’ve been using up my Scheepjeswol Cotton 8 stash.
On holiday I’m always awake before everyone else. That quiet hour sitting on the balcony with my crochet and the first(best) cup of tea of the day watching sleepy tourists make their way for their bread, or those maniacs head out for their runs, is often one of my favorite parts of the day.
I amazed myself by actually running out of yarn but almost managed to add a border to everyone of my squares.
Home now and I’ve started to piece the blanket together. I prefer to crochet the squares together using a double crochet; saving me from too much hand sewing at the end.
I’ve completed the short seams, now just the long ones to finish and a border.
Anyone having a baby?
Love, Lucie x
