Colours of lovelyness

Last week I had a new delivery of yarn and what a colourful rainbow it was. 18 balls of pure pleasure. It's all Stylecraft Special Double Knit which is a lovely soft budget yarn.

These will be used to make a granny stripe blanket for either myself or my daughter

Taa-Daaaa Blanket Finished

The blue and white blanket is finished and I'm soooo happy with it. Stylecraft Wondersoft yarn is a dream to work with which makes hooking even more pleasurable.

I hope the little boy this blanket is going to enjoy snuggling up in this blanket :o)

Happy 60 years to the queen on the throne and lets hope there's many more to come.

Looky at my gorgeous Jubilee tin ..
It's full of jubilee themed love heart sweeties

And jubbly the wookie just had to get in the pics

Saturday was spent doing a huge amount of crochet on my pink ripple blanket ... I crocheted so much I've run out of yarn but fear not, it's on order :o)
I am absolutly loving this blanket and there is no way it's going to another home, it's mine all mine. It's not very often I crochet something for myself so this blanket wll be extra special. It's working out really big too, much bigger than I planned but the bigger the better I say .. It just means more crochet to do

A New Begining ..

I've started this blog so many times but never knew what I was going to do with it but now I have the answer ... It will be a full time crochet and craft blog :o)

I adore crochet and spend all of my spare time with a hook and a ball of yarn.

At the moment I have 4 crochet blanket projects on the go which will be revealed over the next couple of weeks but I will reveal 1 to you now ...

This project uses Stylecraft Wondersoft Baby Double Knit in Little Boy Blue and Snow White, and just look how gorgeous these yarns are ...

Here's a close up of Little Boy Blue ... I love the little dots of colour mixed in.
I wasn't sure at 1st about adding the white in but it's working out really nice.
