Lockton, Hygge and more

Hello,

 

Weather Report

Not a good outlook this morning, it looks very damp and misty. Not a good start to the day, it has made me feel gloomy already.

Now the sun looks like it is trying to come out….. hurrah…..

 

Lockton Squares Blanket

Update on the Lockton Squares Blanket I have finished mine this week and managed to make a border with the remaining yarn, I have worked 63 squares and placed them 7 across x 9 tall, Joining them diagonally using dc.

The border is 4 rounds of trebles with 5 tr. in each corner on the 1st round and 3tr. in the centre st. of the corners in the following rounds. Finally I made a loopy edge with 1dc., 3ch., miss 1tr., 1dc. in next st. I was pleased with the final result.

Schjeepes CAL 2017

Hygge

Since finishing the Lockton Blanket I have done a little more of the CAL. I bought the kit to crochet along alas I have been too busy with other things, I was only on week 2, I have now finished weeks 2 and 3. I still have many weeks to catch up though because it is on week 11. I had not realised that there was going to be lots of surface cross stitching to do and it put me off a little, but the brighter our nights are getting I am able to see better to work them. So I really enjoyed working the last panel. The cross stitching for each panel has not taken as long to do as I thought.

Caron Cakes 

I am still trying to get another idea for using the beautiful Caron Cakes we now have in stock, on our Wool to your Door website. I have worked a granny type blanket and want to do something else so that it will show off the shading more than the blanket did. I loved the yarn though, it is soft and easy to crochet.

Lots of work to do today and I am picking my Grandson up from school this afternoon ” note to self do not forget” I must add a reminder to my phone. All done ūüôā

 

I am trying to decide what colours to use for my next piece of work do I use the green and bright pink ( Fiesta ) or green and bright orange ( Jaffa )

Oh the decisions I have to make…..

If only life were that easy and that was the only thing we all had to decide.

 

I hope you all have a good week

Busy Time

Good Morning oops Good Afternoon,

I almost forgot that it is Tuesday.

I have been busy this week continuing setting up a new shop for my patterns and have nearly finished adding all the products, it does take such a long time. Still have some of my older patterns to alter from the old computer in publisher to new Pages on the Mac. Lots of work goes on behind closed doors… ¬†everything needs altering…….. crocheting needs to be finished.

All of the Parts to the CAL 2016 are in the shop,  all on one page CAL 2016

I don’t know how you feel about computers but I find that I can only work all morning sitting at mine, then need a break in the afternoons, crocheting, typing on my laptop or taking photographs.

So much to do and so little time I don’t know how it seems to go so fast these days, are our hours getting shorter?

 

I have just brought a bag containing¬†samples down from the loft. What a variety of things I have done over the years…

 

 

I received a box of yarn that I ordered to work the new ¬†Scheepjes CAL 2017 – Hygge ¬†it looks fabulous I¬†can’t wait to start, it is due to start on the 15th February

 

They are such lovely colours, so you see I am not only addicted to working my own designs I love to work other designers patterns as well….

Happy Days
