Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

A quick peek....





My big crochet blanket has already passed the halfway point.  This is now it looks now.  The photo shows the colours very well.  (Please ignore the creases....it has been folded up.)  I think I was very lucky to find the job lot of teal Aran yarn in a charity shop.  It complements perfectly the cream and beige that was donated to me by Joanne of the Cup On The Bus blog.

I'm being very good about crocheting at least 2 rows of this blanket at the end of each day.  That doesn't sound like much but I have other smaller projects in progress and the calmer life I was looking forward to after a hectic summer has been put on hold by some big DIY projects at home.

The random stripes are perfect.

It looks great, Una. I think a striped crochet blanket is the most relaxing thing to work on and they grow quickly.

It's looking good Una, I love the strip sequence, I can't believe you have more than half of it done already. :)

2 rows of crochet a day all adds up. Great colours and
can't wait to see it finished.
Cheers, Anita.
