Work in Progress







I thought that I would show you my WIP. Its a crochet blanket for when the camping season starts. Ive been at this since about October, and its great because I can pick it up and put it down whenever. It hasn't cost me anything yet either as I decided to be very thrifty and just use odds and ends. My mum remembered that she had some balls of wool - she never throws anything away. There's wool in this blanket that can remember where it was when JF Kennedy was shot!!! But its not looking too bad and its growing ok too. And can you spot what had arrived when I got home from work? I have a subscription to Cornwall Today - and there is a feature in it on moving to St Ives!!! I take that as a sign! Time to pour another Sloe Gin and let the weekend start here.
Ive also amended the comments slightly as some of you were having probs commenting, and Ive added my email address - so there is no excuse. Its been lovely catching up with you all this week - Ive been all around the country from this PC. Technology is amazing (when it behaves!)
Have a great weekend all - the weather looks set to continue.

Is it easy to pick up this technique of crocheting? I have tried in the past.

I would love to live in st Ives too!!
