I can't believe it is nearly 2 weeks since my last post - that sounds a bit like bloggers anon! Although I'm a lot better now I still feel ill and don't have the energy to do much including putting the computer on! But I did do some of my neglected ripple, while poorly, until something more important came along that is.
That something being a crochet hexagon blanket,
or at least the start of one, using Lucy at attic 24's excellent tutorial.
I'd recommend this tutorial to anyone it's so easy to follow.
I started about a week ago using 15 colours plus yellow for the centres and have done 60 so far, only another 200 or so to go!
I have also partaken in a little retail therapy firstly a duvet set from M and Co, very CK methinks but only £10! It is actually blue - rubbish photo - see further down pic with eiderdown.
Now in November I decided I wanted to try and felt some wool, after seeing lots of great tutorial for making things from it. Well I couldn't find any wool jumpers, until this weekend when I saw a jumble sale advertised, at last, and bought these few, which I will hopefully be able to felt, watch this space!
Oh and I've just been offered a 'maybe job' - managing a pre school adjoined to a primary school - 'maybe job' because it's just in the planning stages but they wanted to know if I'd be interested in running it. I said yes 0f course as I loved my job and really miss it.
I'll be back with my wonderful felted wool - hopefully!
