Alan’s Birthday

Today is Alan’s birthday and he is really pleased, he had a lovely watch off my daughter Claire and her husband Isa, knickers from me, 🙂 he really needed them too!
But the one he liked the most was this lovely throw made by his Mother.

Bread Basket Cloth

As regular visitors know I have only recently learnt to crochet, the only thing I have made previously was a dish cloth, but I wanted to learn to do filet, I found this Fleur-de-Lis bread cloth on Crochet pattern central, there are lots of mistakes but I am pleased with the result, considering I have never followed a crochet pattern before.

New Hobby

I have been meaning to learn to crochet for donkeys years, just lately I joined in with our local knitting group and this week it was a crochet class, yippee, finally. Dawnel who takes the crochet class sat with me all afternoon practicing the stitches, I came home all excited and found some wool and a crochet hook I knew I had somewhere!! This is what I managed to do, this is my first ever hand made dish cloth. 🙂 What about that colour? it was the only cotton yarn I had in my stash, I love it, much to nice to get dirty.
