During my brief 'holiday' I have been buying wool. Lots of wool to make a blanket.
Now I really did want to use Rowan or Debbie Bliss wool but as I haven't crocheted for some years and not being sure how it would all turn out, I couldn't justify the expense. Instead I opted for some very soft Sirdar DK wool (well acrylic and nylon combo to be precise) at £2.50 for a 50g ball and some whopping 100g balls of DK wool at £1.00 each at THE POUND SHOP!!! I did have to rummage about a bit as not all the colours were to my taste but I did manage to get a few to my liking.
I started this blanket on Friday evening. I soon got into the swing of it again. Thanks to Lucy at Attic 24 I have rekindled my love of crochet. Lucy is the queen of crochet and her blog is full of lovely things she has crocheted and there are tutorials in the side bar too.
