I am happy to announce a period of manic crocheting. This always happens, a time of so many ideas, so many starts, some finishes. I made these for a dear friends birthday. She is a hardworking childminder and I thought fingerless gloves would be infinitely practical for her. That being the case I HAD to make them super pretty. They aught to cheer up a pokey old winters day. I have made myself some too, They are similar to Lucy at attic 24. Just make a square, seam it and leave a thumb hole.
I then went on to thinking about my favourite time of year *whisper* (Christmas) I know a lot of people cant bear the thought of it but I figure if I can be positive about the C time then we can all give it a go (2 house moves and pre eclampsia, not the same year!!) Actually I much prefer the preparations and I am known county wide (and hated) for being a champion, whipper upper of children's excited frenzy. Christmas lists are allowed to start just after Christmas!!! Anyhoo I wanted a blankie that was just for the season (y’now tree day to New Year) So I started this, bsed on square I made for SIBOL. They are made on 5.5 hook so they are quick and big. I think I will make 24, we’ll see. The pattern is free and Here.
I also have plans for a little something to make for Tree decorations which I plan to share with you on my bloggiversary in a few weeks, more on that later.
Its been busy day, pooly child, dog rolled in something awful, wsahed, ironed mopped, showered me, showered the dog, showered the dog again. So I guess I will sleep well. Have a great rest of week,
