CAL Week 1

Hi, well I have completed week 1, a little late, but it’s done in time for week 2 being released this morning.

Talk about emotions, wow, I’ve gone from excitement – getting started, frustration – too busy to start it, Anger – once started struggled to get my head around rounds that shouldn’t have been an issue, Panic – need to finish before week 2, YES!!! mastered the pebbles and finished. Breathe……..

I love it and learnt in the process that I actually crochet in US terms rather than UK (hmmmmm?) Anyone else from the UK do this?

Anyway here is yesterdays journey…….

Super excited to start week 2 now and continue this journey with everyone. The pebbles were great to do, very time-consuming but well worth it, and surprisingly easier than I thought they would be.

Lola,She was a Show…

…Cow!

Well hello everyone, apologies for the silence this week it’s been rather busy since my last blog. Happy Easter weekend to you all, I do hope you all have something nice planned for the long weekend and the weather is set to be beautiful (for a change on a bank holiday), so get out there and enjoy and let me know what you are all up to.

Anyone rushing to finish last-minute crochet projects for Easter?

Just look at Lola

I managed to get her finished in time to hand over for the holidays for a birthday present and its safe to say Lola was a success. Yay happy days, What do you think?

She was a joy to make and really enjoyed it. Pattern was from the book Zoomigurumi 2, which followers will know by now I love this range of books. The pattern written by AuroraGurumi, is just such a cute lovely, easy to follow pattern. This pattern also taught me a new method of attaching body parts as you crochet into the rounds rather than sewing on after. Fabulous method ensuring they are in the exact right spot. Think I will adopt this more often going forward.

Anyway, still busy busy here so have a great Good Friday whatever you are doing, see you all soon.
