I think I may have started another addiction... Oh dear God, what have I done??? My blanket yarn arrived yesterday and I am totally in love with it! It is only super cheap and cheerful acrylic stuff as this is my first project but I am just loving the colours all together, and best of all, I now have a 'wool basket' beside the sofa! OK this may not sound much but I've had serious blog envy of other people's colourful baskets piled high with lovely yarn recently, and now I've got my own!!!
Could not stop taking pictures of the gorgeous colours as soon as it arrived...
Don't the colours just look so scrummy together?? I was a bit nervous before they came as quite often I order fabrics and bits off the Internet only for them not to quite live up to the colours on screen. But I have to say that I am so pleasantly surprised with my purchases this time! Most of the yarn here is Stylecraft Special DK, although there are also a couple of random ones in there too that I picked up last week to practise with.
However... and here comes a really big sigh... after all my excitement, I've had lots of work I've needed to get done before the weekend, so have only had time to make one square so far! Really hoping to be able to sit down this weekend and get a few more done. Although it's still super early days and I've only just picked up the basics, I'm really enjoying learning a new craft, one which is totally different to anything I've ever done before. It's definitely a challenge, especially as it doesn't come easily to me... but I have to say that I am loving it (despite the many comments from other half that I am 'old before my time' etc!)
Anyway, hopefully I will be back next week with some actual crochet to show you (I hope I'm not building this up too much???)
Have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing! x
