Phew, at last I have peace and quiet to write my post. Its school holidays here and I have two excitable kiddies staying with me, as I don’t get to see them often I am giving them my undivided attention. They are spending the next two days with a friend who has a farm with horses, sheep and dogs etc. (They are city kids.) Needless to say I have managed to get a lot of crochet done mainly in the evening and it had to be mindless as I was knackered.
It is not on the list, but I was given some lovely wool, so I crocheted this using a simple “V” stitch on a 5.5mm hook. Its lovely and warm, just right for the bitter cold we are experiencing here.
I find that I can do a washcloth in an evening and they make good mindless crocheting in front of the TV. These three are from the top Thick and Bumpy Potholder, Crossroad ribbed washcloth and Simplestripes washcloth. (click on the names for pattern)
I felt in the mood for bright colours, so the top one is the simple stripes again and the other two are from the Wednesday cal from the 2016 Weekly dishcloth and cals group on Ravelry – Simple Dishcloth.
For a long time I have been ogling the rustic lace square that is doing the rounds.
I finally found a chart on Instagram you have to scroll down and I believe the chart is also on Pinterest. Here
The mystery is despite repeated calls for the designer to come forward no one has, so far it has been attributed to coming from a Spanish mag and they have not responded. So, I am adding my two penny worth to call for the designer to come forth. Crochet Tea Party has done a written version of it on Ravelry
The other mystery is that I don’t know what it is going to turn into yet! A table cloth, a bed cover or a curtain? My inspiration has come from a wonderful blog – Pigtails, she has made a table cloth, gorgeous.
I have actually more to show but will leave it for next week as I am not sure how much crochet I will get done before the kids go home. Lol.
So see you all on my rounds
