New Project


Finally I can say I am to feel better today. My husband took one look at me yesterday afternoon and sent me straight to bed. It took 11 hours of Smallville, lots of rest and starting a crochet blanket for me to start feeling alive again. This virus that took over our home and made everyone sick is so horrible. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. And it’s only the beginning of the flu season so I must do some research on how to strengthen my immune system, before the next bug hits.

I used to crochet granny squares all the time was I was a child. I remember my nana and my mum teaching me how to crochet squares with their left over wool from knitting jumpers and other projects. I used to make clothes for my dolls and little blankets. It has been years since I have picked up a crochet hook. But while I was lying in bed yesterday bored I started to make Skye a crochet blanket in pretty girly colours.

I wish I could crochet, can't do it to save myself. I can knit though (very basically). Got any good instructions on how to crochet?
