My Creative Space

Thank goodness I can post this early this week. This morning I am off to work early to hang out with an auditor (joy oh joy)  and tomorrow afternoon I am hanging out with our programmers.  I can feel a very early night coming on tomorrow night.

Now, onto a lighter and much much nicer note. I have been teaching myself to crochet this week. I have been popping over to Pip's blog and watching her videos on granny squares. Pip is a really good teacher. My mum used to sit with me and try to show me but it never really sunk in, until now. I have made some progress but it is a bit wonky. Experts, please look away!

I started doing this blue one and then my daughter decided she wanted one. So yesterday it was off to Spotty we trotted to pick out, yes you guessed it, bright pink for her blanket. I talked her into a bit of white as well.

With my track record, or should I say, project short attention span, I may get this one finished for next winter!

Have you ever seen this, bamboo wool. Well, seeing as I don't usually purchase wool it has probably been around for ages. It felt so beautiful and soft that I just had to buy it. God only knows when I will get around to making something with it.

Oh, and I have been preparing to make a stack of binding for the shop out of these lovelies.

For more creative spaces or to play along, please pop over here to the home of creativeness.

Yours in happy creating.

Yech... auditors. I have an accounting degree and even I find them dull and grey, and most uncompromising. I have had a few harsh words with them before. No wonder you have been crocheting granny squares. I like the blue one. The color is bright. Good luck today.

Your crochet is looking great! And I love the shade of pink your daughter picked out - I struggle to find nice pinks in yarn. I have made a slouchie beanie out of the bamboo wool - it's so lovely and soft. Happy hooking x

I'd like to know how you get on with the bamboo wool? I bought a pair of knitting needles for a friend and thought I might get some bamboo to go with! Happy hooking your granny squares :-)

Pips 101 Granny Square lessons are fantastic, I think we have all used them. You have done a fantastic job on your 1st effort.
