You can read a bit about me at the right hand side. Basically I love making things. Mainly crocheted things or knitted things. For example, here is a crocheted blanket that I've just finished....
Here's what it looked like last week before I got all the squares joined.
|Almost finished joining all the squares|

My husband has named and claimed the blanket. It's to be The Library Blanket. Funny enough, we don't have a library but if my husband can manage it, we will have (some day).
Now this is more exciting; I have got myself some Sirdar Cotton DK (from my local wool shop, of course). Here it all is in my box.
|Sirdar Cotton DK|
The colours are (from left to right and top to bottom) Vanilla, Seersucker, Light Taupe, Toasted, Sundance, Honeysuckle, Tranquil, Bluebird, Sailor Blue, French Navy, Darling Bud, Hot Pink, Black Violet, Larkin and Cottonfield. The names of the colours are lovely; much nicer than just giving each a number. There are two balls each of 15 colours so a total of 3kg of cotton. The plan is to make 6" squares. A lot of 6" squares. One hundred and forty four to be exact. Yes, that's 144 squares. When joined they will become a blanket for a king sized bed. The Sirdar cotton is really nice to work with so I'm looking forward to making this blanket. I also treated myself to a new soft grip hook just to make the whole experience even better.
Well, I think that's enough to get us started. Please fell free to leave me a comment.
All the best for now.
