Jose had a Body Shop party. So I spent all day yesterday doing housework, well apart from popping into the shed to hook a bit, stand a knit a bit as I moved various WIP around. (Why is it I prefer to knit standing up?)
What do you think of this? The start of my Attic 24 bag. http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/crochet-bag.html And my first attempt at blocking (sad to say it really does make a difference). I am using DK Jacob wool that I brought years ago from Yellingham Farm http://www.yellinghamfarm.co.uk/ I think I should have used a 3.5mm hook as it is fairly loose but I am please with the colours. I have decided these bags are going to be my Christmas gifts this year. They are so easy to make and Lucy has a way of writing patterns that make it so simple to follow.
I am also itching to start to make Queenies LULA Crochet Scarf PDF Pattern from the Natural Dye Studio. http://www.dyestudiowoolshop.co.uk/queenies-crochet-210-c.asp. It is from the same designer who was featured in the Inside Crochet magazine.
I love knitting, enjoy small projects (only knitted one adults Jumper, my first attempt but received a luke warm reception from my ex, so stopped knitting for a few years) but I must admit that there is something different about crochet, for me anyway.
Although I am going to try to make a conscious effort to finish some of my WIP (saying that I have two new ones on the go at the moment!!).
I had almost finished my 'painting with yarn' bag but decided to give it a gusset. My aim it to get it finished and felted by Monday evening!
Think I need to paint my back door too, and don't really like the terracotta wall in the kitchen...... and have a load of seed that won't grow if they stay in their packets....and..... need/want to move the pond this weekend.
Well that's my weekend planned. hope you have a happy and restful Easter.
