Cracking on with the crochet.
See... I told you I could crochet granny squares. I have yet to decide what I'm doing with these, they may be a cushion cover. I have never made a cushion before and I'm getting all hot and bothered about how many to make and how they are going to fit together. So far I have used the scientific method of measuring by holding them against an existing cushion and judging it by eye. Two cashmere jumpers have been dug out of the depths of my wardrobe and may be the back. Or maybe not. I can see myself chickening out.
Today I have been to Kent, I go every Friday to take my mum shopping and this week I made a detour to the town to check out the charity shops. They were both no good. Not a sniff of anything decent. Very disappointing indeed. However, there is a bedding shop that stocks wool so I went in there and accidently bought some. Added to what I accidently bought last week in the ironmongers in my village, (is there any such thing as a wool shop any more? Soon I will be buying it in the butchers,)I could probably make a couple of blankies.
I can't resist the colours.
Once I get back from food shopping, (I haven't been for nearly two weeks, we are living on toast and takeaways) I am going to crack on with the cushion cover/blanket/haven't decided yet.
