Bedtime Socks

A lot has happened this week. Daylight saving finished last weekend, I finished all the socks I’ve been making on Sunday, took photos on Monday so I could write my post, then the rest of the week seemed to just disappear in all the general rushing around associated with the last week of term! So… Continue reading Bedtime Socks

Another Trio Swam Away

Wow! So a quarter of the year is now gone, and we are two days down in April already. I took the photo at the top on the 17th of February, the day before I sent these little Octopals away.

Busy times! I have already mentioned the… Continue reading More Birthday Presents

Lovie Blankets

First of all, I believe an apology is in order. Life seems to have become rather muddly and busy over the last few weeks and I have got very behind with my posts. I have completed a number of projects, and remembered to take photos of them before parting with them, but just haven’t had… Continue reading Lovie Blankets

From Christmas To Birthdays And Other Things

I was so excited that both my Octopals were accepted (see my comment on “On Their Way!”) and have now started another octopus. I’m going to stick with this pattern to start off with and return to the jellyfish a bit later. I found crocheting my Octopals a bit hard on my hands. To give… Continue reading From Christmas To Birthdays And Other Things
