So we have been in italy just over a week now and started to settle in 🙂 me and the boys have been out exploring though in this heat not for too long!
Being in a small apartment without a lot to do has given me the chance to really catch up with my crochet 🙂 its so nice just to sit and chill in the evening when the boys are asleep with my hook and yarn, hubby calls it my crochet therapy and i have to say i agree with him! i always come away from it feeling a sense of pride and peace 🙂
heres what i am woking on at the moment- Its going to turn out huge when im done but i am loving the yarn- its my first foray into using acrylic yarn (i will admit im a yarn snob and usually stick with cotton) but its gorgeously squishy and will be super snuggly. Its an amazing colour pack of style craft yarn from the wonderful Sconch textiles (link here- http://www.sconchtextiles.co.uk/yarn/stylecraft-yarn/stylecraft-special-dk-packs ) please check her out, she is on facebook too and just lovely, fab products and ace service highly recommended to you all!
as if to prove my point i put it down for five minutes and came back to find biggest wide eyed boy had stolen it for a snuggle 🙂
Its a slightly modified bavarian crochet style blanket inspired by the amazing Mad Mad me blanket link here- http://032ad8a.netsolhost.com/madmad/2012/02/04/bavarian-crochet-blanket/ it was one of the first things i pinned to my pinterest board so its nice to finally be able to sit down and have a go! i will post a wee tutorial to how i did it when its done 🙂
Signing off for now to do a bit more crocheting in the sun
ciao for now!
