Well spring seems to have come to these parts, birds are singing, blossom is out and weeds are growing and Master Clicky's cricket team are back in action. Of course, a few days of sunshine and then it went all humid and we had a terrific thunderstorm last night.
I've been working on the Wedding Present Blanket ~ granny squares of 11 rounds of colour and then 3 of cream for a boarder. I have
No problem, of course I have other 4mm crochet hooks so I found myself another hook and added the outside 3 rows of cream to some 'middles.' Now it is entirely possible that I was crocheting looser, a bit more relaxed that evening maybe, but look at the difference in size of the finished square.
Side by side it is even more pronounced. Luckily I hadn't done too many before I noticed, so not too many to rectify. I am pleased to say another Drops hook has arrived through the post and I can now carry on.
Here are my finished socks that I made going out to Chicago. I haven't made socks for ages and I really enjoyed these. Drops Fabel in Guacamole Print, I love their vibrancy.
Drops Fabel yarn comes in 50g balls. I'd already decided I wasn't going for a matched pair so I didn't pay too much attention to the way the stripes were going. It wasn't until I really looked, that I realised one ball was wound in the opposite direction to the other!
Well, that's me for now, next Saturday I'm off to Wonderwool Wales with my knitting pal Romain, so we're looking forward to having a wooly day.
Have a great week.........................Clicky Needles.
