A bit poorly over night....think I have caught my sons bug, so between sleeps I pick up the hook and add a couple more motifs.
It's made with Chunky or two strands of DK and a 5mm hook so it really is growing quite fast.
All Stylecraft Life and a couple of Special DK and James C Brett Marble Chunky
I need a couple of new cushion covers to go with the throw so a sample of a Moss stitch variation, this one is a bit more mesh like....another quick and easy stitch combo.
The Motif is from my book, Granny Squares, with a couple of changes to the first two rounds....more because of the chunky yarn used.
Looking Fab! :)ReplyDelete
Great colour combination. Well done(:ReplyDelete
I love the hexagon shapes!ReplyDelete
Hi and thanks...a real quickie too xDelete
Please could you crochet a bit slower, you put me to shame. I started a granny square blanket a year ago andReplyDelete
am nowhere near finishing. Do you ever do housework? lol.
Really I can't crochet quick enough....so many ideas and my hands won't work fast enough lol.
But I do have a lot of time to crochet....between 4 and 9 I can crochet for me, between 9 and 4 in the afternoon it must be work crochet, then after 4 until I fall asleep for me again and housework gets slotted in when I can't stand the mess any longer hehe.
Oh no, I hope you feel better quickly.ReplyDelete
Hi Meredith....I'll live but not feeling brilliant and coughed my way through the night so neither of us got a good nights sleep.Delete
Thanks though. Hugs x
Lovely colours your using. Hope you feel better soon.ReplyDelete
Hi Sally thanks and thanks again, just wish the cough would go.Delete
Hope you feel better quickly Sue. Lots of bugs doing the rounds at the moment, I think. Take care of yourself. Whatever bug it is though isn't slowing down your creativity - what a gorgeous throw and cushions those are already let alone when finished! E xReplyDelete
Hi Elizabeth....started with sickness, aches and pains headache mostly, snuffles and a terrible cough...bad head cold I suppose, I just don't get them so it is knocking me for six.Delete
The crochet is a distraction and this motif is a quickly so it grows fast.
Quite an unusual mix of colors - I like it a lot! I started to follow your blog just a couple of weeks ago, but I've been enjoying your posts ever since, I'm stating the obvious, I know, but let me tell you, you do have a great way with colors and patterns! Hope you feel better soon... :)ReplyDelete
