Lovely bright morning for a bit of hooky.
I’m experimenting with this word hooky; it does have overtones of dodgyness to my sweet innocent mind. Hooky though seems to be what the happening crochet kids on the block are saying, so if I wanna be kool I’ll give it a whirl…
The plan was to make wristwarmers now I’ve got the yarnalicious stash, but then I began wondering if I really, really wanted to wear rainbow coloured wristwarmers when I’ve got around four pairs of gloves already.
Let’s get Crafting magazine did a twitter poll the other day asking their “Question of the Week: do you still buy
#knitted & #crocheted garments from shops or do you prefer to make everything yourself? #craft”
…and my reply was: “I’m not that talented and actually some machine made knitted items look far better than handmade.
#honestopinion” and that really is how I feel about lots of home-made do-dahs.
So, I’ve decided to start a Granny stripe blanket for the little girls I love to be Aunty Rachel to. They apparently like to snuggle under a fleecy blanket sometimes to watch tv, but I think a GS snuggly soft (reliably machine washable I’m told) Stylecraft yarn blanket is the way forward for them. :-D
Deciding which colour comes next is the challenge at the moment. I’ve completed two colour stripes now and do I go purpley again or change to pink? Dark or light? I’m off to ponder one of life’s happier and easier choices.
PS: it’s been flowerarama this week so a pint glass had to suffice for my second bunch of daffs!
