Well I’ve really got the crochet bug again now! Although years ago I used to make pram blankets in colourful crochet, in recent times I have mainly concentrated on using chunky, random yarn to make big throws, as I enjoy the change of colour but the lazy way! However, since my visit to Yarndale and discovering Lucy’s blog of tutorials, I have again become fascinated by the idea of mixing up different bright colours. So this is what arrived this morning!
I just love the sound of the postie dropping parcels of fabrics or wool in the porch!
And this is what it contained!
These are Stylecraft Special double knit premium acrylic. I have prefered to use 100% wool in the past but as these seemed to be endorsed by quite a few people in the crochet and knitting world I thought I would try them. They are from Wool Warehouse and I must say they shipped them very quickly as I only ordered them on Monday! My young self would have been incredulous at the idea that I would one day sit in my living room choosing and paying for lovely wool instead of getting the bus into town and carrying it home!
I am now actually looking forward to cold and even rainy days when it’s just sensible to snuggle up with some colourful crochet!
