Well, I've been going as fast as I can on these squares!
I think Ray is getting a little fed up of me crocheting alllllll the time... I work away at the colourful squares any spare moment I have... When I get up early with Rose, if I'm lucky to get a chance during the day, after dinner, whilst watching some tv and before going to sleep in bed!
He likes the fact I'm a bit creative and enjoy making things. But I think he thinks that I've been glued to my crochet for the last few day's... (well it is a bit addictive!).
I'm choosing the colours at random, although they all have the same coloured centre as I thought it would be good for them to all have some kind of likeness to one another. I hope they end up looking good together though! They might just look too random and all-over-the-place and then I would have wasted a lot of time!
I'm going to have the centre section of the blanket made up from small granny squares and then a few rounds of treble clusters in a small selection of colours, I've no idea what colours these will be yet though!
Rose and I had a love day-trip out on the train earlier on in the week to meet with my cousin for a bit of retail therapy in Southampton. We had such a great time, well I know I did anyway..! :-)
It was lovely to have a trip out somewhere and going on the train with Rose was a real novelty. I was surprised at how well behaved she was, I didn't have to get her out of the buggy once on the way there, as she just grinned at everyone that walked by and was completely mesmerised by everything whizzing by outside.
It was perfect timing on the way back because as soon as we got home, she was well and truly ready to go up to bed. We seem to be back to normal on the teething front, another tooth has appeared but she's not been suffering with it like she was with the other front top one.
One of my purchases was from John Lewis, 2 gorgeousss Rowan yarn. It was in the sale and I love it. :-)
I think I'm going to knit myself some sort of cowl with it... the colour will brighten up those dull winter day's!
I was so chuffed to win one of the giveaway prizes from Kelly @ Handmade at Home.
Some lovely purple yarn and some vintage knitting needles. I lovvvee the colour of the yarn, it's so rich and I'm enjoying thinking of something to make with it..
Okay, I'm off to carry on with my squares!
We're off to Ray's parents tomorrow and that involves a lot of time sitting down and drinking tea whilst Rose is played with and held by others... (i.e Crochet time for Ashley!)
